New favorite layer
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought: Medium
Love this hoodie and the fit is surprisingly spot on. It's an awesome layer that is warm but not too warm. It has a soft fleecy inside, and a nice stretchy water resistant outside. Best part is that it doesn't let much wind through, and it's not so bulky and warm that you can't layer under or over it. Fit is comfortably slim, not too tight, except around the wrists and forearms, which are quite fitted and tapered, but I like that. Biggest thing is the fit. At 6'3" 150lbs, I'm tall and skinny. I wear medium t shirts, usually large jackets (for sleeve length) and extra large sweaters (for sleeve and to prevent shrinkage) so it's really hard for me to gauge fit online. Based on Simms size chart, I ordered a medium but was highly skeptical the sleeves would be long enough. I was very pleasantly surprised and it is a perfect fit. Sleeves are long enough, body is trim but not tight. Love this jacket!
