Hi -
I'm 5'7 165 lbs... 32 waist with a shorter torso and athletic build. I am always between a small and a medium in shirts and jackets. I have read this jacket is a tad big and I'm looking for a replacement for my frazzled monkey man (medium - but they ran a bit small)... i'm looking for something I can throw on over a t-shirt and use as a layer under my shell for skiing and other winter activities. I'll rarely have more than a t-shirt or other base under the retro. That said - would a small be too small - or would it fit perfect? I'd imagine a medium would give more freedom - but I also think the retro might stretch just a hair over time. Thanks for any advice....

Thanks for the question. I'd say you should give the small a shot and rest assured that Backcountry's return policy will help you out if it doesn't fit. I think since you only want to wear a T underneath, or use the fleece as a mid layer that the size small might possibly give you the perfect fit. Hope that helps, good luck
