Best. Jacket. Ever. Well, Pretty Much.

Bought the women's version of this for my wife thinking it was a decent jacket at a good price and was green with envy the moment I sat down to wrap it for her. So, naturally I bought on for myself and couldn't be happier with it. For the price, this is the deal of the year for me. My poor brother recently dropped half a paycheck on a shell from another outfitter and seeing his face when he got his hands on this was priceless.
I am 6'1'' 210 punds with a 48'' chest and 36'' arms (oh, and I like to talk and take long walks on the beach). Anyway, an XL fits me like it was custom fit. Snug enough to not feel baggy when worn over a T-Shirt but plenty of room for layering. Short of literally submerging myself in a pool I have not had a leak and the material is tough enough for everything I've put it through outdoors (hiking, bouldering, kayaking, fly fishing, shooting, trips to Target, etc.).
This is now my go-to jacket any time I walk out the door. Perfect for nearly everything mother nature can throw at me and light enough to never justify not grabbing it before I go.
Go ahead and grab one while you can. You will not be disappointed that you did!
