Close, but no cigar
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: large
The jacket worked well for ski touring and as a mid-layer for downhill skiing. The jacket's fabrics are comfortable and wick moisture well. However, the jacket runs much smaller than other slim fitted OR jackets. I would say size a full size up. The length in the torso and sleeves are shorter than their other jackets so I would not recommend this for use climbing. I was constantly pulling the jacket out from underneath my harness anytime I reached high or swung a tool. Personally, I would not recommend this jacket to friends, but rather tell them to get the bombproof Ascendent or the grid fleece-Ferrosi.
