This jacket has met all my expectations. I normally wear a small in soft shells (I like them to have a closer, athletic fit) but I went with a medium with this one since I planned on using it for snowboarding. This jacket isn't the lightest soft shell, so I don't use it during the summer. However, for the other 3 seasons this jacket is perfect. A little bit of stretch, breathes very well, blocks the wind and is extremely water resistant. The Gore Windstopper material isn't as breathable as a light Schoeller type material, but the jacket does have pit zips to help vent. I use this for shoulder season and winter mountaineering as well as back country snow boarding or snowboarding on warm resort days. As a reference, I am 6', 135lbs and the medium fits with enough room room for me to layer a fleece and a light-insulated jacket underneath. Again, if I wanted a more technical fit, I would have bought the small. Overall, this jacket is a great soft shell for colder weather activities!
