Just received the jacket, and am initially VERY impressed. The quality of construction seems to be on par with or better than anything I have ever used or seen before. The fabric feels very durable inside and out. Although the fleece lining is not very soft, it feels fine against skin, and looks like it will hold up better than traditional fleece linings. The wrist gaiters fit better and feel more durable than others I have had in the past.
The weather resistance looks to be very good, I ran the sleeve under the sink for quite some time, even allowing the water to pool, and it did not soak through at all, the DWR repelled every bead of water. I would say the rain resistance will be above average for DWR, I feel I could easily weather a short downpour in this jacket.
I am 5'8", 140 lbs, slim build and I wear a small. The cut seams to be in-between regular and athletic, with a good amount of stretch. Good fit both with t-shirt and a mid-weight fleece. The Caviar fabric is a little more gray than it appears in pictures.
However the info for this jacket should be updated. The seams are double-stitched, and don't appear to be welded. There are 2 hand pockets, 2 sleeve pockets, 2 pit vents, 1 inner chest pocket, and a removable powder skirt. The hood fits good and has a wired brim, (feels like plastic).
Great value, highly recommended!
