I just received this jacket, so this is my initial impression. This jacket is awesome...absolutely loaded with features...perfect fit with just enough room for layering a heavy fleece or down jacket underneath, loaded with pockets, durable fabric with stretch fabric in all the right places, z-weld technology, pit zips, etc.. The jacket looks great...even better than the picture. This jacket is listed as an alpine shell, but I would classify it as a perfect "all around" shell. I'm sure I'll have it for many many years. I'm 5-8, 185 lbs, 42" chest and I bought a size large.
Here's what other sites are saying:
