Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zipper issues Great jacket. I'm 6'1" 167 and the medium is a perfect fit. Not a bunch of extra fabric, and the strategically placed elastic seems better than drawstrings. There's a major flaw with the zipper though. You can't zip up or down without getting the zipper caught in the fabric behind the zipper. I'm sure it's designed that way to better keep water out, but they should have made that fabric more rigid. It just folds over and gets caught in the zipper every time. Once you're through the zipper drama though, all is well and you're ready to rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bomb Dot Com Kitting out for winter training runs in the Northwest and DFW area, where wind and cold precip are common, I researched and tried on Outdoor Research, North Face, Patagonia and Salomon options. I demanded a hood, and weighted in favor of jackets with more water proof than resistant ratings. I was surprised to find, for me, the Salomon Bonatti WP Jacket was the top option, directly compared to OR Helium 2 and Patagonia Houdini jackets. I note this jacket was also one of the top editor picks in the recent UltraRunning issue. It's good looking, with reflective tape, and locking, high quality zippers. It fits in its own chest pocket, and is comparable in weight/feel to the Houdini and Helium 2--I'd rate it a lighter feel than the Helium and, by a hair, just not quite as light as the Houdini. While I liked the adjustable hoods on the Houdini and the Helium, I found neither cinched around my face without leaving gaps and the Bonatti, though lacking adjustable draw strings, actually fit my head and around my face and neck much better. That generally describes the entire fit. I tried and retried both the Houdini and the Helium 2 over a single thermal layer with shorts and OR Helium 2 pants (which I purchased for the lower half of this kit), and found my normal size, men's Medium, simply failed to afford room for active movement across the yoke and back area--I could feel both binding. While not a major problem while running, when bending and kneeling to adjust gear, it felt small and I could see it failing to wear well. While I could size up to a Large, I found both the Helium 2 and Houdini worked fine for me but simply didn't fit as closely and cleanly as the Bonatti in Medium. I do strength cross training with some weights, but am not a disproportionate chest size at all--very normal 39-40" chest in line with Medium size charts. In short, both the Houdini and Helium 2 would have worked for me in either Medium or Large, but the Bonatti fit and active stretch material was "perfect". I was able to layer a vest on top of the thermal layer very comfortably as well. Like most minimalist outer jackets the Bonatti lacks hand pockets. I went straight from purchase to run 4 miles on a track, wearing only a UA Infrared Cold Gear LS shirt, in 45F spitting rain making 16 turns into 20 mph wind with gusts and (a) lost track of the jacket being on my body, and (b) felt neither wind chill effect nor got a drop of water penetrating. Not a grueling test, but a good first run. No pit vents--something else I prefer--but, as someone who runs "hot" and produces a lot of perspiration, I found the jacket's breathability to be completely adequate. I find the materials and workmanship to be first rate. I passed up great deals on both the Houdini and Helium 2 to purchase this jacket, and am very happy with it. This newcomer to the minimalist market for running gear is a great new option for us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Fit, No Pockets?! I cut two stars from my review for this jacket because of the lack of side pockets only! Everything else about it is frankly perfect. They don't advertise this but it will pack into the chest pocket tightly for a small pouch to quickly toss into luggage for travel. The hood also has a good bit of extra brim to cover the forehead and eyes. It also has an elastic band that keeps it stuck to your head which is fantastic for running or riding into the wind. Also, very nice weather proofed zipper track for extra insulation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fit Great coat but a highly athletic fit. I have an average build and it was to tight. Need to return it.
