    Truthfully, I’ve only tried this jacket on because I’m returning the Med and getting a Large. I’m tall, 5’9 and despite other reviews about long arms, the arm length on the Medium wasn’t quite long enough for me. This fit is slim, so I’d say maybe go up a size if you’re on the fence. That said, the blue/violet color is gorgeous, and the jacket seemed to be very warm and cozy. I can’t wait to get the large.

    I was given this jacket right before a trip that took me to South America, Europe (including Iceland) and back home to the rainy PNW...and it stood up to the challenge like a champ! From the Andes to the Alps I pretty much lived in this jacket for a few months. It is warm, comfortable, water repellent and stylish. I would normally wear a medium, I keep the cuffs of this size large rolled up and it fits perfectly and is great for my long arms. Love this jacket!

    Comfortable, warm and functional

    Got this jacket for girlfriend this is what she had to say...

    "This OR jacket in a medium is so comfortable, easy to move in and is warm, yet light weight. It has a button down closure that seems extremely durable and willing to take a lot of use. The sleeves and hood are made from an extremely soft and stretchy fabric, which adds to the jackets overall comfort. I love this jacket and highly recommended it! "
