Reviewed by ehwis from Utah on Wednesday, October 28, 2015I am 5'4" ish, 120 lbs, with a small chest. I ordered a M since PI pieces are usually slim cut and I have defined arms. The M didn't fit me at all in the chest and it bunched up in the back by the shoulders. The torso area fits better, but the length in front is a little too short for my taste. Sadly, this will be a return. I would've used it for running, but it doesn't lay right because of my lack of a bust.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by love to XC ski from Helena, MT on Monday, June 23, 2014This 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.
