I'm not thrilled with this jacket, but I will keep it, rather than wasting the shipping costs. I'm 5'9", 165 and the XL is snug in the arms and shoulders. Sleeves are long enough - too long actually which is a first for me. The problem is that you can't fit any layers underneath it. Really only a t-shirt feels OK. But, with bare arms, you can feel the rough seam that runs down the arm. I thought it was going to be stretchier and softer. It is quite stiff. The green is brighter than what the monitor shows. I'm disappointed since I love the fit of the XL Fast Trek™ II Full Zip Fleece Jacket. I wonder when I will wear it. It would work with a long sleeve T underneath.
I do not recommend this product.

I've wanted one of these jackets for a while now and I would have to say that it's one of the best purchases I've made. I'm a 5' 10" female and around 135 lbs. and I got a size small. It fits like a glove. I have a long torso and long arms and the length is perfect. The sleeves are long enough to cover my arms completely and the jacket itself is the perfect length.
Aside from that, the jacket has a perfect inner lining that is soft and comfortable. It repels water and stains and is great for a North Dakota fall/early winter/spring season. I love this jacket and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone contemplating whether or not to purchase it.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket. It's lightweight,water just drizzled off in the rain. Fits a little snug but that's good in the cold. Overall a great investment. Good in any season.
I would recommend this product.
