I bought this after spending considerable research. My beloved hardshell went "missing" and I was desperately needing a replacement. I really like the fit. I am usually larger than a medium but larges fit too big. This medium fits perfect and I can get a fleece under it. I love the way the fabric has some stretch to it!! The stretchy material ensures the fit is always great for a large variety of strenuous activities. The giant zips are great for temperature regulation. I coach xc skiing and my time is spent between high aerobic output for demo's then standing around observing. The material is much softer and quieter than my old hardshell which is really nice. The Dual chest pockets was a main selling feature for me as most of the jackets I was looking at only had one or none. I haven't had a chance to test it yet in an all day, during continuous rain the west coast is famous for, but the few hours I have spent in pretty heavy showers have kept me nice and dry. So far I am very happy with this purchase.
