Long review short: It's a great jacket, but do not buy it if you intend to use it to stay dry. Quick size advice: I'm 6ft tall, 180lbs, with an athletic build. I bought three sizes (S, M, L) to see what fit best and I found to like the Medium the most as it gave plenty of room for thick layering without being too bulky. It definitely sizes big and I recommend going one to two sizes low depending on the fit you want (tighter to looser). But the small holds a special place in my heart for how amazing the fit looked. It was just a hair touch away from being able to layer over my thickest coats so I decided against it. The large was simply far too big. I returned the small and large and kept the medium. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Full review I do not normally write reviews and I very rarely leave a 'negative' one. I want to give this jacket a 5 star rating as it is incredibly well made, and I want to preface this novel with why it is so close to being the best. It is the most breathable waterproof shell I have ever owned--no other brand competes and I've tried nearly all of them. There are plenty of good sized pockets and the overall fit is incredibly comfortable. The arms are a tad long and the arms will appear 'poofy', but I see this as a positive as it leaves plenty of room for multiple layers underneath. The overall appearance is very nice and fits right in with the techwear aesthetic. If you're only considering this jacket on the looks, then go for it. It looks fantastic. There are two issues with the jacket, and one is a major downfall. The hood The hood of the jacket is one of the worst I have ever seen. It is nearly impossible to fit correctly and the slightest movement or gust of wind will ruin whatever comfort and usability you managed to obtain. The brim is horrible. It is not ridged enough to form a proper 'beak' to let rain fall in front of your face. Instead it will nearly always lay flat against your forehead and direct water down onto to your face. If you do manage to get the brim to properly stick out as it should, the collar of the hood that goes slightly above the chin will protrude further out than the brim's tip. This means that any water falling off of the brim will fall into a 'funnel' formed by the collar. This let's water flow directly down the inside of the jacket to soak the front of your torso. The bands used to adjust the hood will also occasionally brush your ears pulling anything (hearing protection, earbuds, etc.) in them out. When adjusted to form a proper brim, the sides of the face will barely be protected, so any rain from the sides will also find its way into the 'collar funnel'. There is simply no way to make the hood a usable piece of the jacket. Which is unfortunate as it is one of the most crucial pieces of the system. A waterproof jacket means nothing if it lets rain in from the top. Chest pockets The second shortcoming is the outside chest pockets are not waterproof at all. This seems to be the fault of the zippers as all the water that gets in will pool inside the pocket until you drain them. This was true for all three jackets that I tried so I do not believe it is a defect, rather it is an oversight or intent. Overall If you want to buy the jacket for use in rain, I recommend grabbing any other rain jacket you can find as it will likely have a better hood and actually work. Though I doubt you'll find one that breathes this well and is as waterproof. Even the Arcteryx lines don't really compete with how breathable this jacket is. It's almost laughable in a way. It's such a phenomenal product but the hood completely ruins it in every way for what I would imagine is it's primary use case. Wearing a hat under the hood may force it to be functional, but whether you would want to do that is up to you. I personally find it absurd for a product of this price to not work properly 'out of the box'. If you don't care about waterproof feature, then buy this jacket as soon as you can. You will not regret it at all. Until it rains at least....

I'm going to have to give this jacket 5 stars this is the 2nd best acg jacket since FS 2017 since the original black alpine jacket. The quality is nice love the amount of pockets I picked up 2 all black and the orange and dark grey color.

A few reviewers mentioned that the jacket runs large, and I agree 100% (unless you like the baggy style.) My usual jacket size is S and like the snug fit. So, took the reviewers' advice and ordered XS. As usual, sleeves are too long by 2 inches (my body proportion is unusual) but the body fit perfectly with a little room to layer with my Arcteryx, CERIUM SL down jacket. The hood is a little too large but after making some adjustments, it fits nicely. The color is bright but nothing like the construction vest orange.
