This is a great jacket overall. Superlight, warm, and the black color was not as shiny as the others in this category (patagonia ultralight, Mountain hardware ghost whisperer). It's still shiny but duller than the blacks in the other two brands stated, depends if the trash bag look is your thing it wasn't mine so this was the jacket I went with. The fit was not perfect but doable. I'm 6' 155 and went with the medium. My concerns were the arms were a little on the long side and the overall length of the jacket was a little long for me. Both of these issues were minor in my opinion as the overall cut was form fitting and very stylish. I love that the jacket can be stored in the front pocket. The overall feel of the fabric is soft and smooth. I have the patagonia ultralight hoody and a mountain hardware nitrous. This is the jacket I'll grab for extreme outdoor activities. Overall it feels a bit better in overall quality then the others. It is a more substantial jacket and appears to have more fill and it's a bit more puffy than the others especially in the arms. Overall, great jacket and I expect years of use from it.
