    Very well made. Great fit. Long enough in the arms and torso for dynamic movement with out baring skin. Feels like it will last a long time.
    I am 5'8" 135lbs, 34D, 29 waist. Medium FIts me perfect.
    No draw string around the hood but rather a skull cap style toggle, so it hugs around your head like the rim of a hat and snugs the hood to your head. This seems like it will keep the hood closed but not cover your eyes--a good thing when turning your head. It's new to me, but I think I like it! Still have to try it for real, but it acts just like a hat and doesn't look weird so I think it will be a great innovation.
    Inner wool wrist hugging sleeves to keep wind out.

    This jacket fits great and feels warm, though since I have bought it in summer I haven't been able to put it to the test. Reviewers on other sites give this jacket a great ratings for warmth vs. weight so I'm keeping it after considerable thought and comparison to other insulating fabrics. I've also had good luck with Icebreaker quality and the jacket appears well made. I'm 5'6" 115 lbs and the XS fits great with room to layer. The only issue I have at this time is that the actual weight of the jacket I got is heavier than the marketed weight by a couple ounces and it is both heavier (by a several ounces) and less packable than the Marmot Isotherm (but the Icebreaker in theory should be warmer though perhaps slightly less breathable). Weight mattered to me on this purchase because I plan to use it for long winter days and overnights and am trying to reduce pack weight. I run cold though so I think this will be a great layer to have for winter activities and camping. Can't wait to use it!

    Very good quality like all things from icebreaker. Unfortunately for me the arms were narrower than other brands in my size and was too restricting. Had to return it. Also there is an inner sleeve by the cuffs. Not sure if I would like that.

    This is a great fall/spring jacket or great for casual wear in the sub-freezing winter (when you are in and out of the cold and not staying out in the cold for long periods of time). I am really loving it. I love the more fitted shape. A medium fit perfectly on my 5'0", 140lb frame. The arms are a bit long, but as a petite, I've come to expect that in shirts and jackets :)
