Rated5out of5byOC AubreyfromExcellent Hiker & Daily WearI live in Southern California so this is my 'winter coat.' It looks great and functions perfectly. I was a little hesitant to buy as this was A. my first Patagonia purchase and B. the cost was non-trivial. I'm very glad I got it.
It performs well in colder environments and light drizzle as well although this is definitely not a rain jacket. I like that if it did get soaked it has Primaloft and thus retains its warmth.
I'm 5'9" 155 and I picked up the small because I like a closer fit. The medium's shoulders were clearly drooping over mine and the small is just right. There's room for layers (a short + ls shirt) beneath and it falls over my hips without chaffing / much contact.
If you want this jacket, I'd recommend getting it!
