Rated5out of5byColorado5280fromGreat FitI went to the store with the intent to get a North Face bionic jacket, but I'm six feet, athletically built. It just didn't fit well-short sleeves, narrow shoulders, short body, which was surprising given how many other TNF products I have. I grabbed this one randomly and was pleased by the fit. The sleeves are long and have the keyhole openings for the thumbs when it gets chilly out.

Rated4out of5byKSEfromwarm and comfortableThis is my first soft shell, and it's great. I have worn it cross country skiing and ice climbing and the fit allows good freedom of movement and is fine to wear with a pack. The soft long cuffs are great. Size S fits me well (5'6", 120 lb), although the cut is slightly boxy around the shoulders and chest. The pockets are good, but the zipper pulls are a bit small to use with thick gloves. The dolomite colour also makes it a nice looking jacket for around town.
