Great fit and very warm for how light weight it is.
This is my second purchase of this jacket and IMHO Mountain Hardware really missed the boat on the new model.
This jacket and the Dome Perignon windproof hat are essentials for surviving the winter in the city or in the mountains.

I actually returned this in favor of a Mountain Hardware Android. This jacket fits slim, and I do like that.
Do note that this jacket is part fleece. The lighter color (in my case, red) is fleece outer. The rest is a shell.
I didn't want the wear and tear of a fleece outer, so I got the Android, which is all soft shell outer.

First off, I'm 6'2" 170-175 pounds (athletic build) and the large fits me exactly as a mid-layer to outer-layer should; it has enough room for a fleece and shirt underneath, but fits snug enough for a water-proof shell to fit over it. The neck is comfortable, the sleeves are long enough, and I have enough room to move without it being baggy. I bought the sapphire blue/black and it looks cool enough, but I only wear this for backcountry trips, backpacking, day-hikes, and trail runs. I spend my time mostly in the San Bernardino Mountains, San Gabriels, Sierra Nevadas, and Santa Anas as I live in Southern California (temporarily), and the jacket is perfect as an outer layer unless it's winter, or it's a rainy day. The pit zips provide excellent ventilation when you're hiking on a day with strong wind gusts, yet is otherwise warm. It doesn't have a hood, but I prefer hats or a beanie anyway, since hoods have always made me feel claustrophobic, and they also affect my peripheral vision, which I don't enjoy on steep, rocky terrain. The pockets seem to be in an odd place until you strap on your large backpack for extended trips and realize the hip belts interfere with normal pockets. The higher placement allows you to access your pockets if need be, and besides, who hikes with their hands in their pockets? Obviously no jacket is perfect for every condition, and in my experience, no jacket works for every person since we all have different preferences and body types, but overall I've found this jacket to be a great asset on the trail and I can honestly recommend it. I hope this helps!

I was tired of feeling cold this Winter and decided to research and buy some new cold weather clothing. I am an inspector (of sorts) and stand outside for 8-10 hours a day. Not much possibility of generating body heat because of not much activity. Pacing back and forth is about all. My plan was to get some Merino underwear, this jacket for a mid layer, and an uber-reflective shell for the outer (I work in traffic and on construction sites). Let me tell you - this jacket is superb for my needs! It really cuts the wind out of the equation, which was previously one of my biggest problems. When layered properly over the merino I don't feel much more than chilly down to 40 - 45 degrees with a 15 - 20 MPH wind. With a warmer shell or heavy coat as an outermost layer I can easily bear much colder and windier conditions. The "pit zips" are awesome and really let me control the temperature without needing to remove layers - which can be an issue on a work site (ok, I took my jacket off - now what do I do with it?). The size I ordered fit very snugly and I might have been able to go up one size, but I was worried about being too much when I put a coat or shell on over it.

Overall - I am very impressed with this jacket. It looks stylish, fits well, eliminates the wind, retains body heat, is well made, and just plain works!

This is a great jacket that unfortunately in no longer made. The "windstopper" feature of the material and thin polar fleece make this an awesome underlayer or it can be worn as a standard jacket. The new model does not come with pit zips which is a real shame. This is my second purchase of this jacket and IMHO Mountain Hardware really missed the boat on the new model. Get one of these if you can find it.

The original version of this fleece was bar none the best fleece jacket I ever owned. This is the newer version and somehow misses the mark. While it is still way better than the inferior North Face Denali fleece, I wish MH hadn't messed with a good thing. PS- Bring back the interior zippered pocket!

Very comfortable fit, allowing for a free range of motion and the ability to layer underneath it. Without layering it is a little loose, but assume this is because it was made for function rather than to wear in a fashion show.

Wind-stop works well. Was concerned that, without a cinch-strap at the end of the sleeves, they may be too long. That is not the case, as the Medium fits me perfectly (I'm 5'7"). Have seen complaints from taller individuals that the sleeves are too short, so plan accordingly.

My only (minor) complaint is that the side pockets seem very high for comfortably walking with hands in pockets.

The jacket is comfortable and warm in all types of weather. I've worn it from fall to winter without needing additional layers. I had a previous version of this jacket for years and loved it. The sizing on this is a little smaller in the arm/shoulder area than my last one. The wind proof on the is great too. I really love this jacket!

The best warmth-to-weight ratio of any jacket I know. I can wear a T-shirt and this jacket at any temperature above 40 or 45 degrees and be fine. If I wear a small down jacket underneath this soft shell, I'm good down to 32 degrees. This jacket and the Dome Perignon windproof hat are essentials for surviving the winter in the city or in the mountains.
