How does this jacket fit, baggy or otherwise? I was looking at the 686 vitals cubic shell and both reviews said it fit kinda awkward. I normally get a medium in jackets/hoodies, I'm 5'9, 180, with a 39 inch chest. I'm not looking for the ultra baggy look.

Is this jacket good enough to wear in cold conditions if I wear a nice sweater or something under? What could I wear under to make it warm?
I really like this jacket but im concerned about warmth on colder days.
Thanks in advance
Yes. i bought this coat about a month ago and it has been very warm. I love it. its comfy, flexible and if its warmer out it acts like a sweatshirt and if its colder out it, with a hoodie underneath it acts like a puffy jacket but you get the sense of a shell. i love it. and im sure you will too.
Note: The jacket seems to change colors from brown...to like a forest green. with like flourescent lighting or uv rays or something.
