3 5

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 155 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

The color of this jacket and overall design and features are spot on. fit is somewhat of a personal thing but as other reviewers have noted to sizing on this seems odd. I am a 5'9" 155lb male who wears size medium in just about everything I have ever owned (including at least 6 patagonia jackets)I find the medium to be anything but a comfortable/functional fit. It is too long and wide at the bottom, the chest almost is almost right for layering, and the sleeves seem perfect. I found with the hood on my helmet I had pretty significant peripheral vision and head range of motion restriction. Zippers seem weirdly small as well to be used with gloves or mitts in the backcountry. I really was only buying this to replace a 20 year old shell still going strong but no helmet compatible hood so with the weird fit and poor hood function its getting returned.

Very lightweight, very capable. Got it for traveling for day hikes and adventures on vacation where I didn't have room to deal with a proper pack. Now I carry it everywhere. I carry it to work daily, snowboarding with the kids, hiking and so forth. I bike commute with it to get the pack and sweat off my back. It's really exceeded my expectations.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I have a lot of Capo gear (bib shorts, jerseys, gloves, socks, etc) and am very pleased with all of it. I find the stitching and seams of higher quality than my Castelli products. As my Castelli Sorpasso Bibs chamois came apart after only a few rides I found these on sale and snatched them up. I am pleased with the look, warmth and quality of manufacturing but after two rides won't be wearing these anymore. When riding, the material bunches on the lateral aspect of my knees and rubs the skin raw... only rode 20mi yesterday and it feels like a bad rug burn on the lateral aspect of my knees. Unfortunately, I waited too long to try them to return them so now I am stuck with them .
