Armand Cwrote a review of Black Diamond Sharp End Shell Jacket - Men's on August 18, 2019
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
On paper the BD Sharp End has all the modern features you’d expect from a modern technical shell. Gore-Tex Pro, burly face material, pit zips, Cohaesive cord adjustments, and build quality is first rate. The fit and sizing are all wrong though. Firstly the collar is super narrow and very uncomfortable when zipped up. Add any layers and it’s even worse. The hood is quite small as well. Once I got this jacket home, and tried it with my other gear, I immediately knew it was going to get returned. If you need/want a technical shell from BD, get the Helio instead. The fit on the Helio is dialed in way better.
