This is a good looking jacket. It doesn't look super outdoor tech dork and that's a good change from many of the choices in jackets out there. The fit is athletic, slim and stretchy which could be a good and bad thing depending on your body type. It's true, the length is fairly short so your back and sometimes stomach can get exposed leading to some drafts, but the cut of the jacket is intended for a climbing harness so you can't blame it. Very warm for it's weight and with a 100 weight fleece underneath, is good to around freezing temperatures. I'm 6' 190 lbs and got a large and it fits pretty well minus the shortness. Kind of like windstopper, the conduit softshell isn't the most breathable, but unzip the pockets and they vent well. For a reference, I've attached a picture of me wearing the jacket so you can see how it fits. Overall, this is a versatile piece which I'm very happy with.
