Awesome for miniature golf

Sorry! I know that isn't the intended use for this guy, but I just picked it up on spring clearance. The best I could do was playing miniature golf with my son in 50-degree weather with 20+ mph winds. My hands were cold, but my body didn't feel a thing. Worked perfectly to block the wind. Also, the gusseted arm design really let me crank up my putt-putt backswing. It moves easily, drapes well, the fleece interior feels great. Looks classic. This is really a fine jacket.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it's oversized for a scrawny (5-10, 140 lbs., wearing a Small) guy like me. Both this and the Gamma MX say "Athletic fit" but this is much roomier. It's not so bad through the body, even for me, but I found the upper arms to be huge and the sleeves to be too long. This jacket is light enough to be worn even in mild temperatures, but I can't pull it off without at least two layers on to fill it out and take up some of the slack in the sleeves, so it will be strictly a cold-weather coat for me. I've seen complaints about the narrow wrists. A stick-wrist like I am doesn't have much trouble with them, but there is a severe taper in the forearm. What you gain from that is no velcro wrist closure, just a snug-fitting elastic.

If they made an XS I'd buy it and wear it twice as much. Really a first-rate product.
