    Quite nice, but you need to add a size if you want to layer.

    Nice cut with accurate sizing, sleeves don't stick if you wear fleece like so many jackets do. Feels comfortable. I bought 4 jackets to try and kept this one.

    I bought this for a 6'4" 175 pound guy and a Large Tall fit him great in both arm and overall length. The delivery went great and the quality of the jacket was great as well.

    I'm 6'5", 200lbs and usually wear a 44XL suit size. The Large Tall fits great, enough room for layering and freedom of motion but not too bulky. The jacket is windproof up to about 40mph (tested on a quick motorcycle ride). The only con - the material is a little too heavy to consider this a "packable" jacket and the jacket takes up a lot of space in a backpack or luggage. As for the reflective lining - I was skeptical but it really works. You can actually feel your body heat reflected back off the lining.

    The jacket seemed expensive but after purchase I think it is worth the price.

    XL Tall fits perfectly. I am 6 ft 3 in tall, 215 pounds with a 37 inch sleeve. The sleeves on most jackets are too short for me. The sleeves on this one reach all the way to my wrists. It is not as warm as I was expecting though. It is fine down to the low 20s but anything colder I would want to wear a heavier jacket or something warm under this one.

    I bought size XL tall - this is the first jacket I have had in a long time with sleeves that are long enough. I am 6'3" 210 pounds with a 37 inch sleeve. This jacket fits great. Not as warm as I was expecting, but warm enough with minimal bulk. Blocks the wind great. If it was colder than about 25 F I would want to have a warm layer underneath if I was not moving around enough to stay warm.
