Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 205 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

Got this as a gift for Christmas and looks to be warm and well made. I just had a major issue with the sizing - I normally wear a L in tops or XL if I want it baggy, but the XL was very snug on me and even tried the 2XL to see if that was longer and better fit. Disappointed by their sizing, I could tell almost zero difference between the XL and 2XL. I think I would've loved the hoody if it actually fit, but can't recommend this at all unless you're very thin and average height.

Penfield really needs to rethink their sizing, now I'm afraid to buy anything from them.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This will keep you plenty warm in the low temperatures all winter long. When I first wore it, I forgot to take it off when I got inside and then realized I wasn't getting to warm even though I was still wearing this really warm fleece. It definitely regulates your body temperature to keep you at the right temp all day long. I bought it as a mid-layer for snowboarding, but works perfectly well in the cold as long as there isn't wind.

It is a tiny bit of a slim/athletic fit, probably more than most, but i wanted something like that so it fits me great (me 6'2", 205lb, 38" chest, 34" waist).

My only gripe is the hood - while I'm glad it comes with one, it's rather large, almost enough for a helmet. I can't really complain since I do like it, but since it doesn't have any way to tighten for a better fit, I'm a little torn on it. It also comes with thumb holes in the sleeves, which are a nice little addition.

This is my first Narrona purchase, and I am definitely impressed. I looked for a long time before purchasing a mid-layer, and I'm so glad I chose this one. I get plenty of compliments wearing this out around town or in the house.
