I cannot say enough great things about this jacket. I have been looking for a midweight piece to wear during winter here in WA and this jacket does it all. I am busty up top so did size up from my usual L to an XL which does make it a bit larger in the waist and hips but the side elastic tab helps to tighten it, which makes it easier to layer underneath as well. Otherwise, it runs true to size. The cut and comfort are great as the side panels allow room for stretch and to move. I wear this hiking all the time and usually have to take it off because I get too warm with it. On casual walks outside, wearing a sweatshirt or fleece underneath when it's 30 is perfect. People have complained about the fact that the zipper does release and come down on its own, but it was designed to do that. If you're larger up top, it may do that more often, but I get around that by just zipping it up past the breasts. It's easy to clean, breathable, SO comfortable, and doesn't make me look like a linebacker like a lot of those "puffy" jackets would. As always, Arc'teryx makes top quality products and the price is worth it. Will definitely be buying more of them. PS pocket sizes are great and warm, the cuffs are a bit tight, but is only a problem in that they require effort to get them over a smart watch/bracelet. Hood size is also perfect and lays flat when not up.
