Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I purchased this Rab Microlight to replace an aging LLBean Ultralight 850 jacket. I loved the LLBean, but wanted a trimmer fit. At 6'2" 180lbs, but with 38-40in chest, finding things that are long enough in the torso and sleeves without being baggy across the torso is difficult. The Gearheads recommended the Rab jacket for it's Trim fit, and I can see why. I ordered a Medium and it fits great. There's not much room for layering of a bulky sweater/fleece underneath, but it's nice for running around town. I'm not sure this jacket will really take the place of the slightly heavier LLBean for extended dog walks and trips to the park, but time will tell. Winter is supposed to be mild in Buffalo this year, anyway. It would be nice to have lined pockets and around the neck, but I guess that would add to the price.
