Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
I bought this to replace a light weight Marmot jacket that I lost on vacation. The original jacket was bought in haste and was really not what I was looking for, but as I got to use it more and more, it became a critical item for me to have with me on both outdoor adventures and business trips. It was great to have in case the plane got too cold, or the weather where ever I was suddently turned rainy or windy. The new jacket has all the features of the old one, plus zippered pockets and a ear-phone slot so you can keep an ipod in the chest pocket but have the ear phone cord come out inside the jacket and under your collar. This jacket also has a higher zip collar than the original which keeps my neck warmer in stiff winds. The jacket is incredibly light, yet does a good job of fending off wind and water, though given enough of a down-pour, your are eventually going to get wet in this. I keep an outdoor research rain shell on hand for really bad weather, but this jacket gets worn 90% of the time, and I love that it has a lightweight lining which helps keep the wet shell off your skin, yet vents really well.
As others have noted, its got a tight fit. I am tall but skinny, and if you read the size charts, I would normally wear a medium, but the large fits me, and it fits fairly tightly. I can wear a fleece or a shirt under it, but you could not wear a heavy sweater without looking like you had been shrink-wrapped. If you like loose fitting garb, go a size or 2 larger than you normally wear. I like it this way because If things get really cold or really wet, I will put this under the other shell I might be wearing, and I like that it fits like a nice shirt.
I'm tempted to order a 2nd once in case I am stupid enough to loose this one like I did the last one.
