5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 128 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I love this jacket. It's lightweight and very warm. Great for a backpack in summer or as a layer in winter. BUT, everyday the zipper catches on fabric and I have a fit getting it unstuck. It is imperative that you unzip with the jacket fully straightened, in other words, not while hiking or with a pack on. If you unzip part-way, it will get stuck. That's because they've used a very narrow zipper to preserve weight and the compromise is a hassle.

One other important thing. I ALWAYS take a medium, esp. if I want to use the coat as a top layer. But the medium was gigantic. I almost didn't try to exchange for the small but decided to give it a try. The small fits perfect. And that is weird as it means the sizing is way off here. I am 5'2, 128 pounds but have broad shoulders and stocky build.
