    Nice jacket but one design flaw

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    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!!!

    Love this jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    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.

    Love this jacket!
