Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I took this on a recent 100 mile backpacking segment of the Colorado Trail in late July and August, and it ended up becoming my favorite layer. With a light fleece lining built in, it's not a true windshirt, but it essentially provides 2 layers in one. It's lightweight breathable, and packs down very small. I also like that I can now have a nice soft fleece feel to my "pillow" (turn it inside out and wrap it around my stuff sack of clothing). It has replaced my down sweater layer, as I don't need to baby this as much as I did the down. While I would have loved some pockets to put my hands in while standing around camp, I appreciate that Marmot decided to save weight by leaving them off. All in all, I highly recommend this jacket. It's my favorite go-to lightweight jacket for everything (not just backpacking).
