I received this as a gift and my wish was for a similar jacket by The North Face. This jacket far exceeds that one with its cleverly snug wrist bands which keep the cold air out and don't bunch up where my gloves meet my sleeves. There is an ingenious pocket on the chest for my cash and credit in case I get hungry from all the great skiing in Utah! You wanna talk warmth? This jacket, an undershirt and a shell is all you need for anything mother nature is throwing at you that day! As for fit.. I am a small and it fits perfect for its use (as a layer). Thanks Mom and Backcountry for leading her in this direction!!
