Sweet belt but sizing is off. I'm a measured 34-35 waist (not just randomly guessing based off pants/shorts/etc) and went w/ the large first (34-38 it said), and it was way big. I switched out for a medium (allegedly for 30-34 waist) and its perfect...4 holes left going one way, and 5 the other. The length of the medium excluding buckle is 41". As others have noted: its wide, padded, comfortable and seems durable.

I picked this up primaily for running, and also as a mid-layer/shell for hiking. We finally had some cold temps in NY to test this bad boy out and its warm. I'm still trying to find the right baselayer to temp calc. 1st time (powerstrectch base, 20-30 temp, teens windchill) and ended up sweating more than i wanted. 2nd time, similar temps and cap 2 base and similar result. In warmer temps, I've worn lightweight merino, and that worked out but I was also able to drop the zipper a bit more. When the temp is in the teens, I am less inclined to lower the zipper. Also, when I fully zip the jacket with the hood up, the neck is too snug for my liking. Wearing a turtleneck base w or w/o zipper saves me from having to zip the jacket all the way up. The lone back/side pocket is good for gloves, ear wamer, cap, etc (just 1 or 2, not all 3).
Large fits well for 6', 42 chest, 34-35 waist. The jacket has no drawcords but doesnt need them with the athletic cut.
