- Q & A
Ok if it fits you
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium and Large
- Height: 5'5"
- Weight: 130lbs
I was looking for a mid layer to wear under my ski shell. Originally purchased a medium, it was too small, backcountry was great about exchanging it for a large. But it still didn't work out.
Things I liked:
very high neck that you could easily bury your face in if it was windy or super cold. It was not too bulky.
Why I returned it: The sizing of this jacket seemed a bit off to me. I am 5-5 132 lbs, 36B chest. no real hips to speak of. I'm usually a small or medium in tops/jackets. When I tried on the medium around the waist I felt like a stuffed sausage. It was really tight. Liking the jacket, I tried a large. The larger was a little better but the waist sort of flared out in a weird way. There is no drawstring around the waist to cinch it. Odd fit. But if it did fit you, I think you'd be in love!
One of the most versatile synthetic jackets around. Perfect for everything from mountaineering to walking around town. It travels easy by packing into it's own pocket!
