Hi-viz, new sizing (for Simms?)

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wide Loops from South FLA on Tuesday, November 3, 2015
I haven't had the need to wear this in a storm as of yet, but I've noted a few things regarding sizing.
Historically I've worn a size small in Simms products and initially took delivery of this jacket in that size. I
couldn't get it on and called to order it in medium, (the purchased one to be returned).

I'm 5'7", 130#s and the medium size is tight with a medium layer underneath for warmth (especially so in the
forearms). I think the sleeves are also lengthy, but not a problem as the closure is Velcro.

It will do fine for my intended uses. I have other waterproof jackets, but they don't offer the visibility and
ventilation features.

PS I've found Simms (and Columbia, Orvis) to usually run large? This is the second Simms product, I've had to exchange for a medium. The recently offered "camo" UPF long sleeve pullover shirt was also too tight and replaced with a medium.

This was handled by STP quickly and without questions.
