Rated 3 out of 5 by KateS from Solid Jacket 5'6, slim build, bought an XS. Fits perfectly. Pros: roomy sleeves allow down jackets to maintain their loft when worn underneath, cut is flattering and practical, hood fits well over a helmet, longer length in body means you stay covered with arms lifted. Unlike other shells, the zipper is not prone to sticking. Love the colour (amethyst). Cons: mine is an older model which does not have a chest pocket or an interior pocket. At the time this didn't seem like a big deal, but the loss of functionality in the field is really noticeable and this jacket is now only worn for commuting. I wish I had waited a year or two to buy one! Mesh in the pit zip area would be a nice add in future models, too.
