I am in love with this jacket. I got the Full Swing Cryder jacket just about two weeks ago and I've worn it almost every day. It has been super comfortable and maybe even too warm in the 50's in town and was so perfect for hiking and adventuring around in the mountains when it was just above freezing. I look forward to using it all winter and taking it camping with me. The Full Swing design is exceptional for movement - not something that you'd think of in a thick jacket like this. I might end up waxing it later in the winter to make it a little more waterproof. It'll definitely keep you warm and dry in light snow or rain but not extended time in downpour or sleet.
Fit: Like a previous reviewer mentioned, the sleeves are a little short. Not so much that you look weird but enough that you notice it. It sits right at my hips and is otherwise a great fit. If you're unsure of which size you should order, definitely size down. For reference, in Patagonia I wear a size small, in Arc'teryx I'm a medium, and in The North Face I'm a medium.

Very comfortable, makes moving super easy while keeping you warm and dry!
Highly recommend, I wear it in cold Canadian winter with no problems (can add a sweater underneath very easily), true to size, sleeve could be a bit longer but overall a very nice product. Lots of pockets and has a very convenient angle at the end of the sleeve (easy to reach in your pocket, wash your hands, etc..)
Very fast shipping and great dealing with the backcountry staff, very fast and easy communication.

Comfortable, warm, so NOT WATER RESISTANT! Day three of wearing this jacket out hunting, it began sleeting. By mid day I was soaked to the skin and freezing. I'm very disappointed. If you're looking for a jacket that will withstand the weather, do NOT get this one.
