The fit of this jacket is perfect. It's athletic, not slim, or trim, but not regular or relaxed. I'm 6ft, 210, 42R jacket, 35in waist; I wear the large.
I wear a windbreaker at work for probably 100 days out of the year and this has everything you want.
I've seen alot of weight weenie's diss this jacket. These are the same guys who imagine they can do the Pacific Crest Trail in record time, but can't seem to loose that last 10lbs of beer gut. Admittedly, it could be an ounce and a half lighter, but what it gives you for that 1.5 ounces is far and away more than you get from other windshells; draw string hem and hood, adjustable wrist cuffs, great fabric feel, and importantly, a molded vislon zipper that wont fail like coiled zippers will.
The change of fabric from 2013 to 2014 is possibly disappointing. The old version was 20 denier with a mechanical stretch and a nice techy feel to the touch. This version is 30 denier (1/3 more density) but there is...
I'm 6'1 and 210 lbs. I usually wear large tall. However, since that is not an option, I ordered the extra large. The fit on this jacket it wonderful. It's so good, I don't even notice I have it on sometimes. There is also plenty range of motion. Arc'teryx makes great products, but do research before you order. The material looks a lot thicker in the picture. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
A couple years ago, I bought a Patagonia Houdini for outdoor concerts, emergency (summer) weather protection, and for hiking and running in the rain, but wasn't too happy with it. I saw this on sale, bought it on a whim, and have been happy ever since. For lightweight, packable wind and water protection, you can't get any better. Note: It is not designed nor is advertised for all-day deluges (get a Gore Tex equivalent shell that requirement, because this jacket will soak through after a prolonged downpour). Bottom line: I pack this when I go to summer music festivals or hiking/trail running if there is a threat of rain.
