I was excited about the heavy material (entirely 70D), but that is the only pro I see here.

The collar is floppy and doesn't stay up. The hood does not have a wire brim. The elbows are insufficiently articulated. When zipped all the way up with the hood on, the zipper pokes the back of your chin. And on top of all that, the "artichoke" is very green (don't look at the picture, just think of an artichoke).

I would say that this is an average fit. If you are thin and wear Stoic or Norrona or even Patagonia, this will probably be too wide in the chest (unless you want to wear a puffy vest or something).

This shirt is nice, but I just don't see how it is worth $20 more than the Stoic merino crew shirt. In fact, because the fabric is super-lightweight, I think the zippers make this feel less durable than the crew shirt. At the moment, I have one of each (crew, bliss), but on future purchases I'll save the $20 and just go with the crew.

Nice fit for me. The legs will be tight if you have fat legs, or possibly just normal ones.

Cinch at the ankle seems extraneous... I'm less than eager to tighten the inside of any waterproof garment directly against something like metal boot laces.

All I can say is that nothing will get through the "Superfabric" ankle zones, haha. Feels more like plastic than fabric...

6'0", 130 lbs, medium is perfect (although w/ thumbs in holes the sleeves would ideally be ~1 cm longer)

1. When my thumbs are in the holes, the sleeve seam runs right across my elbow. Since the thread is not nearly as nice as the wool, this is noticeable and uncomfortable with the friction caused by bending my arm. However, this is only a problem if you use the thumbholes; otherwise, you can simply rotate the seam away from the elbow.

2. The thumbholes are slightly too small for my thumbs. Seems like it wouldn't be all that bad to have slightly larger holes, even if your thumbs weren't that big.
