A little too light.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wayne F from Houston, TX on Tuesday, December 9, 2014
Yes, it does say it's a lightweight jacket, but I find it to be too light for what I was looking for. I wore it on a 60 degree, windless night with just a t-shirt underneath. I wasn't comfortable. It's virtually useless without a long-sleeve layer underneath. Hold it up to a light and you can see a lot of that light shine through. I also would prefer that the cuffs of the sleeves would cinch around my wrists. I can get 4 fingers in the end of the sleeve without stretching it. I'm 6'3" and 210, and the XL does fit me well. I often have trouble finding a jacket with long enough sleeves. I wear 35" sleeves in a dress shirt, and the length is just right on this jacket. Overall length is good too, but again, I would like it to cinch around me to keep the wind out. Summary: I like the jacket but a cheaper jacket that I bought with this order is warmer and meets all of my expectations. I don't really recommend this jacket, and if I was examining it in the store, probably would not have bought it, considering the features and price. I don't dislike it enough to return it but will always wear something long-sleeve under it. Btw, I do like the royal blue, but don't really like the logo on the chest.
