Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got 2 of these in XL and they've held up great after several trips. The XL swallows a ton of gear, so much so you've got to watch what you pack or you can barely lift it. One we use for skiwear and it'll hold 2 sets of boots, pants, jackets, helmets, gloves, etc and still have room. Lash it on a hitch platform behind the jeep and all our gear is dry and clean when we get to the mountain.

Used the other XL to haul 2 sets of dive gear and thought for sure it would be a 1 trip bag after the airline luggage monkeys got through with it. But it came through 4 airports without a tear or rub. Tough enough I think it'll last quite a while as long as I keep the zipper waxed.

Fit: True to size

Bought several to take on a June trip to the Caribbean. Light and breezy enough to keep me from overheating, but enough fabric to keep me from broiling. Any breeze at all and it wicked sweat away and stayed pretty dry. Coming back to buy a less colorful option for summer fishing.

Sizing was ok for me; I normally wear a 16.5 x 35"shirt (vary between L and XL depending on brand) and the L fit me perfectly in this shirt.

Unless the day is cold to start, this is my low volume rain jacket on flyfishing trips up in the mountains. Takes up next to no room in a vest or pack, but gives good coverage when you get caught in a sudden thunderstorm along the stream. Covers well over a vest or small hydration pack, and the hood is large enough to go over whatever hat I'm wearing with just a bit of brim sticking out. If the wind is really blowing, I'll wrap my wader belt around the waist on top to keep it from billowing and catching on tree limbs. I recharge it with a tech wash and spray on treatment once a year before the season and it sheds water like new.
