Great material, but wrong fit for me

Verified Buyer Reviewed by love to XC ski from Helena, MT on Monday, June 23, 2014
This material is bulletproof - can't imagine a better jacket for XC skiing in MT, but it just didn't fit me right. I bought the L, which turned out to be big in the shoulders and chest, but tight through the hips. I am a curvy size 12, about 5'8" tall and 155 pounds. I was going to keep the jacket anyway, but then tried on the Mountain Hardwear Principia, which I ordered in the same shipment, and that one fit me perfectly, so the Pearl Izumi went back. Too bad though, as the soft shell material of the Pearl Izumi seemed like the warmer of the two jackets. Pearl Izumi makes amazing stuff, and this jacket is no exception, it is just that the fit was all wrong for me.
