by stephanieskisfromWant to love this jacket, but...I love the idea of this jacket, and it's the type of combination I've been looking for to wear beneath my ski shell, however, the fit is terrible! I am not a large-chested woman, but this jacket pulls awkwardly across my chest when zipped. Some bust darts would greatly improve the fit.

by k44fromPretty good, versatileI like the versatility of this jacket. It's not bukly like a regular fleece, so it fits well under my wind&rain proof shell. It also works well as an outer or mid layer for running. The sleeves are on the long side, with thumbholes, so it can help keep your hands warm, if needed. I've been wearing it for about a month now (mostly for running), and I'm still glad I bought it. I do agree with the other reviewer who said the jacket is a bit tight in the chest, and could use some darts for a better fit. That was totally spot on.

by nschuenefromAwesome!This soft shell is fantastic. I am a petite person and the fit is ideal (not bulky, fits under everything). I have already recommended it to all my friends - outdoorsy and city type. I'm very happy with this purchase.

by NicotyefromIndispensable to me... really.I bought this jacket to be my 'all purpose' jacket - the one that goes absolutely everywhere with me. The sizing is perfect and, even though I'm hard to fit (overly busty), the small still zips up very comfortably. The sleeves have a thumb hole and, unlike so many similar to this design, they are the perfect length and I never get chafing/rubs. The weight of the jacket is perfect and it doesn't hurt that it's crazy comfortable. I wear it at work all the time (where they keep it like a fridge!) and I have taken it everywhere from the normal hikes in my stomping grounds of Tennessee to a week long trek in the Rockies. If it's colder than about 40-degrees, it may not be warm enough, but I had it in 40-degrees and was just barely chilly.
I love this jacket SO much that, when my daughter and I were backpacking and she got some embers on it (by the way... it'll get burn holes... not anti-ember!) I was so devastated that I immediately came home and bought the exact same jacket again. While I'm often a Marmot-junkie, this is yet another example of WHY I am... LOVE this jacket.
