Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered this anorak to layer under an Arcteryx soft shell for skiing. I ordered a Large (based on a previous reviewer's suggestion to order up a size) and it fits perfectly with room to layer underneath, if necessary. I am 5'6" and 135 lbs with a bust to contend with (36D). While I haven't worn it skiing yet, I did wear it for a power walk in 22 degree windy weather with only a tank top and flannel shirt underneath. I was plenty warm (and I am almost always cold). The wrist gaiters are a nice touch. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

I received this jacket and have been on the fence as to whether or not I should return it. I was hoping to find something to bridge the gap between my winter Arcteryx softshell (too heavy for spring) and summer weather. This jacket fits nicely (although the pockets are oddly high and not comfortable to use) and it has an interior collar, which I like. It is neither windproof nor waterproof, which is fine except that for the price I expected a few more bells and whistles. I ordered a medium and it fit my long arms nicely. I am 5'51/2 and 130 lbs. with a fairly slim athletic build (monkey arms). Not much room for layering though. A hooded sweatshirt would be too much. I spend my free time hiking, running, skiing and I don't think this jacket is appropriate for any of that. It is less of a performance piece and more of a "looks great walking the dog in a mountain town" piece, in my opinion. The chocolate brown color is very nice. I may order it in white for 1/2 the price and call it a day.

A down jacket that fits well, keeps me warm and doesn't make me look like the StayPuff Marshmallow Man.
I am 5'51/2 and weigh 120 lbs. I ordered the medium and couldn't be happier. The arms are long enough...which is sometimes a challenge for me....and that's a pleasant surprise.
The coat works well with an extra layer (fleece? softshell?) when the weather really is cold...but unless I am spending a lot of time outside, it's not necessary. The only downfall I see is that it appears to lose more feathers than I would have expected. It's not like they are flying out of the jacket, but they do tend to accumulate on the back of my driver's seat. They also tend to "stick out" here and there.
Small price to pay for a very comfortable, functional, well fitting (FINALLY!!) jacket. It's a keeper.

I am very pleased with this jacket. Great function....very good fit. I am 5'6" 125 lbs. and I ordered a Medium. I am happy with the sizing. My only complaint is that I wish the pit zips had mesh.
The hood is very good. It's functional as it truly protects you from the elements. In cooler weather, I wear a hoody under the jacket or even a fleece. It's a very lightweight jacket and the fit accommodates a extra layer nicely.
I have worn it one several day hikes and couldn't be happier. It folds up to next to nothing and fits in my backpack perfectly. Nothing bulky about it.
It's a keeper.
