    I am currently on my 3rd Quantum jacket. i wore the first two completely out - they are covered in holes and only suitable for yard work and camping! Love the fit, fabric and colors! I have longer arms and the sleeves are long enough for me. Best jacket ever!

    Nice fit. Fabric is soft not itchy.

    I love this jacket! Perfect for fall or non-windy conditions. Can layer up for extra protection. It is a little tighter than a couple of other icebreaker jackets. I had bought XS in other color last year and this time I bought S. XS was great in arms, but would show any imperfection around your waist ;) I really wanted purple or green, but hot pink was the only color available. I like the hoof and the wrap at the arms for extra warmth. You don't have to carry hat or gloves for moderate cold.

    Cute jacket and would look best w/ purple bottoms like shown on model. Buy one size up unless you like tight,
    form fitting. It's about a thick t-shirt thickness and nice fitting and it is a bit more orange than the photo.. photo shows
    more salmon colored. Very nice stretchy wool. Hood lining is pale yellow. Not sure if I will keep it for $78 + tax.. expensive.

    I know I've reviewed this before, because I ordered one before and sent it back. But Icebreaker no longer makes these adjustable around the hips, so I needed to keep it because my other five quantum hoodies are worn to rags. I'll reiterate the problems with this one. First it is too long and narrow. I am 5'3", with a 34" bust and fit a size 6-8 pants. I ordered a large. It fits fine around the bust but is too long and too narrow to fit over my hips. When zipped, the zipper bunches up into my face when I bend over. I either have to stretch it tightly over my hips, leaving lots of wrinkles in the middle of my back and accentuates every bump and bulge underneath, or bunch it up above my hips which looks horrible and renders the pockets inaccessible. I will either have to remove the zipper and install a two way zipper (an extremely time-consuming process because the zipper is installed with about 10 layers of stitching and it is difficult to remove without cutting holes in the fabric) or install two small zippers at the bottom hem so I can unzip up it to accommodate my gigantic hips.

    The other problem is that the sleeves end with a double layer mitt. This results in FOUR layers of looped fabric on one side of the end of the sleeve. They are extremely bulky making the sleeve difficult to push up, say, to wash your hands. It's also hot. Finally, they are almost impossible to use as intended, which i presume is as a thumbless mitten because once you get one over your hand it is extremely difficult to pull it over your other hand. I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of that, but it looks like I would have to essentially reconstruct the entire sleeve and again, that would be extremely difficult to do without putting holes in the fabric.

    Great hoody for layering. Lightweight but adds warmth and also breathes when you're active. Blue color is vibrant and fun. Fits tts although arms were a bit long for this 5ft 3in girl.

    I'm usually a small in Icebreaker jackets but I returned these for mediums- the smalls would've worked, but I wanted a more relaxed fit instead of snug. They're a really nice mid layer for cold days and a nice outer layer for when it's slightly chilly; they're good for running, and good as casual hoodies.

    Ok, ai am a bit of an Icebreaker snob. I love the quality, and merino wool is comfortable because it actually breathes. Since I got this jacket in blue, it's become a staple and I seem to be wearing it almost daily. I only wish I could get it in black for the same great price. It runs fitted. I am a size 8 with kind of broad shoulders. I got a Large, as I like things roomy, but a medium would probably fit.

    Great light weight jacket. It's soft, stretchy, and very comfortable. I'm 5'5'' 120#, and a small fits very well. I'm usually XS or S for most jackets depending on the brand, but I do find Icebreaker jacket tends to run slightly tight in the chest and a small fits me much better. This is my second jacket in the Quantum series (first is the hoodie which doesn't have hand pockets, sigh), and I really like them! The material is 260g/m^2 except for the ventilation mesh-like material under arm-pits. Wonder why STP doesn't post this information. It's not heavy enough on its own for the winter, but will serve as an excellent mid-layer in the very cold days, or a casual office jacket.

    Icebreaker does it again - fantastic lightweight merino hoodie in a gorgeous bright green with spot-on details including reflective patches, thumb holes and mitts. Perfect for layering on cooler days. Some of my favorite gear and an amazing price at STP.
