Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I first ordered this jacket in State Orange, and while it does say orange, the picture here seems to be a very red orange. However, when it came in it looked bright orange, which is not what I was expecting. I bought a Small and Medium so I could see how they fit and it seemed to run a little bit large since I very rarely end up with a small. I sent both back and ordered a small in Dark Compass blue. I looked at the pictures on BackCountry.com and compared to Amazon and they were totally different. I took a gamble and the jacket looked more like the picture on Amazon. I realize this jacket is hard to take a picture of due to the nature of the thin material. Still, no excuse for a half decent photographer.

The actual jacket is awesome though. Way warmer than a 100 weight fleece, but weighs the same. The sleeve cuffs fit snug even on my skinny wrists but I could see them being fine for bigger wrists. The sleeves are long enough for my long arms, the pits don't go up too high like the Rab fit, the length of the jacket sits comfortably at my waist, zippers work great but remind me of a tent zipper because they're on the small side (kind of cool since it reminds me of camping/backpacking which is fitting for this type of jacket).

TLDR: I love the jacket but hate the pictures on this site - poor color representation.
