Winner of the Outside Magazine Gear of the Year award, the renamed Cathode Hooded Jacket is the first insulated jacket that climbs as well as it belays. The Cathode features Schoeller underarm side panels that stretch and breathe through crux moves and water-resistant Prim aloft One insulation that keeps you warm during brisk predawn starts and blustery afternoons. Built with a super-lightweight Pretext Quantum outer, the hybrid construction of the Cathode makes it an ideal choice for action in cold, wet alpine environments where lightweight, breathable warmth is critical.

One more thing, the OR warranty service is apparently top notch, so I'm feeling quite happy about this purchase and will be looking at OR products again down the line.
For now, it's four stars. Ask me again come January and I might happily up it to 5 after putting it through the real test.
Besides the fit, the jacket is pretty nice. The hood fits well and is adjustable. It's a lightweight jacket, it kept me pretty warm considering how thin it is, it stretches, the materials seem quality, and a light the ventilation on the sides. I just can't get past the fit, it just isn't right. If you are built more like a marathon runner / stick then this jacket will probably work for you. I returned it and got a Arc'teryx Atom LT Hoody for $30 more and am very happy with my decision.
I'm 5'11" with an athletic build and the medium is a comfortably tight/fitted feel. Size up if like a looser fit or are a bit bigger.
