by RugballfromDoes this make me look fat?I liked the look of this jacket and have had other Icebreaker gear which I think are all well made and comfortable. I intended to use it for some jogging, disc golf (since the material stretches allowing for movement), and hikes. With it zipped, I was still able to raise my arms up without the jacket pulling up so the design is great, just a very slim fit. I'm 6'2", I ordered the XXL and the length was fine for me. Sadly, it was too tight across the shoulders, etc. so that's why I didn't give it more stars. If you're a slender build, it should be fine though, and the material is great. Yes, I would recommend this to a (skinny) friend.

by JiarifromFor those who have super skinny armsThe armhole is way too small. The material and fit otherwise appear to be extremely well made. I just couldn't deal with the cut off of circulation to my arms. This was designed for someone without any musculature in their arms. Had to return it.

by Dr Steve the weekend warriorfromquality, tailored slim jacketI really like the jacket, but beware this is a "tailored slim" fit. Size up was a good fit. Get a lot of compliments when wearing this jacket. A good extra layer for brisk weather.
