"Fantastic jacket but not for beefy boys"
The Outdoor Gear Labs review was spot on. This is (was .. I returned it) a fantastic minimalists jacket that sports the necessary creature comforts; fuzzy chin warmer and good ventilation. The jacket is impressively lightweight and quite packable. I have no doubt it would excel in wet and windy conditions.I'm 6 ft, 205 lbs and a large was almost the correct size - the armpits were a bit too tight for my bulk. If I were less shapely - perhaps 10 to 20 lbs lighter - the jacket would have been perfect. An XL would have been too much jacket for me to fill which caused me to look elsewhere.
