Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

This jacket has been PERFECT for the fall/winter SF weather. It's also been great for lighter outdoor climbing trips in cool temps (I have worn it while bouldering and single pitch leading, it held up well and kept me warm enough), but I would not test it on climbs with a lot of very sharp surfaces. It provides the right amount of warmth for temps in the 50s/40s F and does well with windy conditions (relatively windproof but you have to be moving to stay toasty). It might be decent at colder temperatures, aka 30s, if you are moving around consistently, but the stretchy panels of fabric on the side make it not as ideal for chilly winter or mountain weather. However, the side panels are nice for breathability. The outer material is very durable and light. I would highly recommend wearing a waterproof shell over it in the rain/slush/snow, as it is definitely not waterproof. One more bonus: it looks really nice and the size M is long enough for my torso and arms without having folds of fabric in the body of the jacket/ looking huge (I'm 5' 8" and lean with long limbs, so sizing jackets right can be tricky).
