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

I've had this jacket for a few weeks at this point and I really like it. I'm 6'1" 170lbs, and I find the medium to fit very well. The design is very sleek, the merino wool feels really nice, and it works well to provide just enough warmth when the temperature is around 40F. I also really love the chest pocket- all jackets should have this feature!

I would have given this jacket 5 stars, but I have some concerns about it's durability. There are a few places where I am worries the merino is going to wear very quickly- sleeves where it rubs against my watch, the pockets where I store my keys, and the lower back where my backpack rubs against it. I would be nice if the jacket provided a bit more protection in these areas.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

I ordered this jacket after reading some reviews on a few sites saying that it was very good for temperatures around 40 F, but I returned it a few days after I received it because it provides almost no warmth. My other issue with this jacket was that the pockets are very shallow, so it is easy for things to fall out of them.

I'm 6'1" 170lbs, and the medium fit me well, so if you're want a very light jacket for an athletic frame, this could be a good choice. If you are looking for something that provides any sort of warmth, I would go for something else. I ended up settling on the Icebreaker Blast and have been happy with that choice.
