I have been searching for the perfect softshell for sometime. My bf has the ROM men's and loves it. I went into the local shop to try on this women's ROM. The fabric is great - light, durable, and warm. I'm 5'9" and marmot sizing says I should be a medium but it was too short in the torso. I wanted to use this jacket out hiking, snowshoeing, biking, etc. but when I raised my arms up the jacket pulled up showing my stomach. It also has lines across the chest area apparently to make it more feminine but on me it just awkwardly accentuated my chest area. I tried the large but it widened and lengthened and was too big. Solution -> I just bought the men's version in a small! It has a MUCH longer center back length and it still looks great. If you are tall try this jacket before purchasing. If you aren't tall this jacket is a great active softshell!
