I would review but I really haven't used it so I don't think it is appropriate.
I had a OR Fracture jacket but same raging butt-crack ganked it and 2 other jackets from me. Objective, try to get one that will work everywhere I need it to. I the Fracture, I loved it (its a mid weight primaloft). I'm 5'8.5" and 160 lb, the medium ~Fracture~ was perfect. I ordered a medium Chaos, because a little warm is better than a little cold now that I lost my down jacket. The sizing is wayyy different than the Fracture. Read other reviews online. Sent it back and got a small. THe small Chaos fits a lot like the medium Fracture. It think the Chaos's oversizing is stupid unless it's waterproof, it was big.
Sooo... 5'8.5" 160 lb dude, the small fits like a medium. Like completely, chest, arms hood etc. Water-resistant zippers are finicky, but thats a given. The big-ass inner mesh pockets can double as a trout bag if you forgot your fishing vest too. But I like it, can't wait to try it out.
