Fine quality, not happy with shape/fit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cate the Hiker from Bend, OR on Sunday, March 25, 2012
The pros: this does shed off water, it's well constructed, and the sleeves are long enough. Now, the cons. I'm 5'10", 145lbs, with a long torso and full bust. I don't like the fit of this. It's fine around the chest but the rest is bulky, and the pocket openings go up all the way to your chest in an awkward way. It's a little short. I thought form the description that there was also a drawcord to help it fit around the waist--not, just the hip. It also is not very fleecy...it's more like fuzz on the inside. It's warm simply because it closes in your heat and blocks wind. I'll be returning this, bummer!
