Feels good not all that warm not as I’d been led to believe reading other reviews and product description. Got the yellow color it’s not as metallic as it appears in the photo, also I find this runs large, I’m 6’1 175 lbs size L is too big and baggy might return for exchange or just return . But feels nice and soft, appears to be well made but can’t say how it would hold up in use, arms are kind of too baggy cut as well. Something like this should really not cost more than $150 full price but everything’s so overpriced these days.

I really liked this jacket but am returning for one reason: it has no drawstring at the waist. In my opinion waist drawstring is key for any truly technical piece. The Arcteryx Atom LT is the perfect comparative example. This jacket fit well and has great styling, but the waist hem was not tight enough and there was o way to cinch it tighter. Too bad because I really liked it otherwise. Fit wise, I'm 6' 3" and 185 lbs, and the XL fit well except too loose at waist.

I'm 6-1 185 and the large fits me perfect and there's no need for a draw cord hem I wear a 34 size waist, but I think they did it to cut down on the weight and drawcord hems get in the way when you wear a harness. All-in-all I believe this may be the perfect mid-layer ever made that wool insulation is a dream, the way it regulates your heat, and the stretch areas on your shoulder blades are clutch! Love this piece!!!

Nice athletic fit, not at all bulky, as this is meant to be pack-able. The pictures of the Blue Sea color on BC's website appear to be darker than the jacket really is. I was a little disappointed that is was lighter/brighter, but the color is growing on me. (picture of it next to my Osprey Tropos pack for comparison) Planning to do more winter activities with it as soon as we have some decent snow, including XC skiing and snowshoeing, in addition to winter hiking. I'm normally not one to have an integrated hood, but it has come in handy on some blustery winter days already, as well as getting caught in some rain. It's a slick, technical looking jacket that's nice for around-town use as well.

Nice

Hey Matt, I'm just curious, what are your measurements in terms of height and weight? I'm trying to decide between Med and Large. Thanks!
