Nice Jacket, strange fit in armholes
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L
Feels like excellent quality out of the box. I got the Large (5'7", 150 lbs) and the fit isn't perfect, the armholes/armpit area is really constricting. At first I thought it was tight across the chest which surprised me because I'm not large chested but after wearing it while driving I realized it was bunching up under my armpits and it seems the arm holes just aren't positioned in the proper place, or they're not deep enough, making for a sweaty and uncomfortable experience. (If you look closely at the two pictures in the reviews from the women on Ortovox's team, you can see the bunching (armpit wedgie?) in their armpits also, so its not just me) Too bad, I love the feel of the fabric and the warmth to weight ratio.. I like the idea of a super warm and packable outer layer, but I don't if I'll be able to get over the weird fit.
