Love the actual more muted or toned down blue color vs the bright Olympian Blue shown in the pic. Its hard to describe but kind of an indigo blue steel that had a child with a brighter Olympia Blue. Way more classy color than the pic here on BC.
So fit wise at 5'11" in my socks and 170lbs with a 34 waist and in my 60's. Have a bit broader shoulders and longer arms so I chose a large over the medium which was a tailored painted on fit that would be used solely as a layering piece. The large still tailored down through the hips was just a better all around fit and still looks svelte.
So I have gone this route before to use under my Norrona GTX Lofoten shell and its great for in bounds but prolly not going to aggressively hike with it very much. It creates warmth but its not windproof. That's why I wear a small pack and carry a different insulation or wind blocking mid layer to swap out. Really a nice piece though and glad to have it in the clothing quiv.
