Warm and well made. It's a little bulky, but warm enough for a cold winter day and made of durable materials that can withstand some abuse.

Finally found the right casual jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

This was an exhaustive search for the right casual winter jacket. I have several layering systems but wanted something I could just throw on and head out and was non-technical looking. I wanted down, waterproof, rugged fabric, and a nice look. I bought and returned several jackets from several brands. When I first ordered this I ordered a small, which is what I wear 85% of the time. the small fit very nicely over a t-shirt, but if I had my S better sweater or pretty much any casual midlayer the arm pits were very tight. Everywhere else it fit perfectly. Thanks to back country I was able to return it for a medium and keep the sale price that had ended previously. The medium is a tad big on me but allows me to throw it on over a fleece without discomfort. I am glad decided to exchange. I am right on the line measurement wise between small and medium in most brands, but usually end up most comfortable in the small because I like slim fit, but had the same issue with my marmot minimalist. I really like marmot, but sizing comes down to this. Do I want to wear a midlayer? if the answer is yes then I need a medium, if I want to wear it over a T shirt I go small. The quality of the jacket feels great, but I have not gotten a chance to see how warm it will keep me yet, but I am pretty confident in it. Marmot could take a note from patagonia with their underarm gusseting and I would be back in a small. On a side note, my wife is rarely impressed with anything I buy to satisfy my obsession with jackets and boots, but this one turned her head.

New York jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

I have been using my jacket all this week and is perfect for the winter time in NYC. Looks like a normal jacket but is absolutely warm. If you are a M and you are not going to use under jacket the S looks great! :D
