Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
This is a really simple light jacket without many features, but the fabric is deluxe and is well made. I agree with other reviews on the waist is narrow, hood is smallish, and sleeves are long. I would add the zipper is hard to pull past about armpit height. Also, it does not layer easily because the fabric is grabby - so if you want to layer much under it, get a size up (but wait, the sleeves are long)... And, no pit zips so it doesn't breath as well as it could, and not a headphone port or interior pocket, or ski pass pocket on the arm to be found. In fact the external chest pocket conflicts with a backpack shoulder strap, so I can't imagine using that pocket with a pack on. My friend said it best, it's like a softshell zip-up hoodie. If you want a more feature rich shell for skiing, keep looking. But this is still a nice jacket for a lot of adventures or just wearing to be warm and dry at the bus stop.
