Great jacket, but had to return it

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I decided to give them a second chance and got a Medium instead. It is a much better fit. The arm length is longer, and the cuffs don't hurt on this one. I'm not sure if I got a newer version or older version, but this one didn't have the Mt Hardwear logo on the back like my first purchase.
I purchased a small size jacket. I am about 5'7 and 150lbs, and the fit was perfect, but I returned it due to the cons below.

As other reviewers have mentioned, I too found the sleeve to be a bit too short. When my arms were down, it was perfect length, but as soon as I brought my arms up (eg, when driving), the cuffs would ride a few inches up my arm.

Also, I had a difficult time zipping all the way up. I think my neck size is something like 15 3/4.

Finally, a negative I have not seen mentioned. There is a hard corner in each cuff, so when I velcroed them tighter, the corners were rubbing into my wrists, which hurt after some time.

It's a great jacket, but I couldn't live with these cons.

Responded on

I had similar problems when i tried on my younger brothers shirt one night before going out.
When i lifted my arms above my head, to simulate dancing, the cuffs were a few inches up my arm.I also couldnt get the top button closed and the curfs rubbed hard on my wrists.
I wore this shirt several times and began to hate it.But then i realised it wasnt the shirt...the shirt was perfect.
I was just wearing a shirt that was TOO SMALL for me.
