Awesome Jacket... still get comments on it.

Runs small... true to the statement "Trim Fit", and you're talking to a guy who is 5'7" at 140lbs and I normally love all my stuff very FITTED but this is a tad bit on the uncomfortable side. You may have to go one size bigger just to layer for really cold ice climbs. I can barely get two thin layers of base-layers - for example: a short sleeve EMS T1 and a long sleeve T1 combo or barely a single layer medium weight Patagonia Capilene.

Seems best suited for 2.5 seasons - Spring & Fall ventures and late winter/early spring ice climbing... when temps start rising but still a cool breeze at times.

PROS: Overall a stellar piece with a stowable thin fabric hood and bullet-proof fabric..

CONS: Outside of the fit running small I wish it had a double headed main zipper and two interior pockets instead of just the one.
