Love this jacket... runs large though.
First of all... I haven't had it out in the elements yet, so these are just my initial impressions. After receiving it in the mail, my first impression was that the jacket feels very quality compared to similar jackets I tried in this price range. I got my jacket (red... volcano?) on sale, but compared to other ~$300 down jackets, this one feels higher-end. But lets talk about FIT - I am 5'8" on a good day and about 160 lbs, with a 32 waist. Overall, I have an average build-type (maybe a little on the slim side). The MEDIUM ran way too big for me but the SMALL was perfect; I would describe it as an athletic fitting jacket, so it's tight in the right areas. But even with the small, I feel like there's ample room for base and mid-layers. But all that said... I would normally characterize myself as a MEDIUM, so I actually sized down. Again, based on my initial impressions and the fit, I would highly recommend.
