Rated5out of5bySpockLogikfromGreat JacketThis is a great jacket. In this pricerange, I haven't found another jacket with these features and specs (20k waterproof, 15k breathable), plus it looks really cool. As far as fit goes, it has an athletic cut, so it will fit a little tigheter around the mid-section. I'm 5'11" and 185lb, and a large worked great for me, while the medium was a little tight (If I lost 10-15 pounds, I might go for the medium :D).
The jacket has performed great, went to loveland on a 35-40 degree day and just had this jacket and long underware on! It's a lightweight jacket so the warmth did suprise me. It also does a great job keeping the moisture out, and contains all the nice featurs of a jacket north of $300.
It has built-in wrist gaiters which are a great feature that I didn't see listed in REI's description. I have average-length arms and these can pinch a little by mid-day, so if you have long arms, they may not work for you.
Also, the velcro detached from one of the pockets after a few wares. I haven't seen this in other reviews and it is an easy fix.
All together a GREAT jacket for the money. I love it.
