Nice, but a few issues

Got this on SAC, great deal. I really like this jacket, as I like all my Mountain Hardwear stuff - high quality, great fit and function, etc. This jacket is nice and fuzzy, and keeps you very warm and cozy. Two issues with it though - it's not windproof, so you need a shell, or to wear it in a non-windy situation. Otherwise, the wind blows right through it, and you basically might as well not be wearing it - it's that 'holey'. Secondly, it's leaving tons of lint all over my clothes. I haven't washed it yet, hopefully doing that will help. But it's really annoying to have to rub all this lint off. A high quality jacket like this shouldn't have this issue. Other than that - I really like it. Hopefully the lint issue will get resolved after washing - then it will be a great jacket.
On the fit - I'm 6'1", 240 but don't really look as big as that might sound (that's what I hear, at least). The XL fits me perfectly - if I had to critique, maybe just a touch big, but I wouldn't want it any smaller.
