Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
The Patagonia Down Sweater is exactly what I was hoping for/expecting. I'm 5'7", 160 lbs, 38" bust, and wear a size 12 so I'm not a skinny woman! But the Large is not snug on me and leaves room for a light under layer. Measurement down the back from the seam at the collar is 27", which hits me mid-way down my?well, it's past my waist, thankfully. Many reviewers were complaining about the shortness of this jacket hitting them right at the waist, but I find it to be a perfect hip length; and I'm not a short waisted woman. Sizing was a big question for me, and I'm really glad that length and width are just right. Yes, the arms are long, so if you have short arms you may not feel comfortable in this jacket. But the wrist openings are elasticized so it's not like the arms of the jacket hang down to my fingertips. Bottom line, if you're looking for a super light, versatile piece, this is a great choice.
