Some FACTS about sizing

Reviewed by tkbuz from Maryland on Monday, November 3, 2014
The sizing of these jackets seems to be the main subject of debate in the reviews, so this is what I will focus on. The jacket itself seems well made although very thin and lightweight, which I guess is the point of a packable jacket. I can't comment on the waterproofness yet.

I am a male, 5'7" and 130 lbs, with a 36 in chest. I ordered both the XS and S based on other reviews, hoping that one of them would fit. They both fit well, but the XS wouldn't allow room for anything but a shirt underneath. The S was a little roomier but not too big (although quite long). I could see using the XS for cycling where I would want a closer fit but the S is better for all around use. Here are measured dimensions of both (unscientific of course!):

Width, armpit to armpit: XS 20.75", S 22.25"
Length collar to back: XS 28.5", S 29.5"
Sleeve armpit to wrist: XS 21", S 21"

There you have it. Sorry I can't comment on the larger sizes, maybe someone else can order a few and measure them!
