    Nice Intermediate Layer

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Really happy with this layer. I burn hot so the ventilation on the sides is really nice. Really enjoy the shade of gray, think it looks pretty sharp. It is a jacket I will use frequently in the spring and on warmer winter days. Does fit a bit long, but fit is solid, its not too bad.

    Amazing fit but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    It has an amazing fit for the athletic body. But it doesn't have anything in between your neck and zipper. You could think that it's not a big deal, but once it gets colder that zipper is so annoying and cold. Almost all sweaters don't have this problem. Even chip one. But this one for $150 has. Returning it.
    So don't buy it because you will have to pay $7 for return shipping label ;)

    Too long

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 143lbs

    Whereas this looked really good (I got the green one) on the web, it was a huge dissapointment in real life. First of all, it is very long. I own both the R1, and R2, fleece jacket and they are not short by any means. This one, a supposedly "casual" jacket, was longer! Also, the pockets are placed much lover than on the more technical fleece jackets and just felt weird. Second big, big minus is that the zipper doesn't have a flap or "zipper garage", so that metal zipper is exposed and touches your chin when zipped up. Finally, the material just felt cheap. Needless to say, I sent it back almost directly.
