This jacket has a long, slimmer fit which I love and haven't found in a lot of jackets lately. It is a waterproof, softshell-type material that has a good amount of stretch and is super comfortable. The four pockets on front are easy to open/close with gloves on. This jacket has a generous amount of room around the neck when fully zipped so you have plenty of room to wear a thick gaiter without feeling restricted. There are 3 buttons on the cuffs that will accommodate any thickness of glove your wearing.The jacket does not have cinch straps around the bottom hem. That being said, they really aren't necessary because the jacket is cinched a little already. For sizing, I am 5'6", 160 lbs, my torso length is 16" and my chest measurement is 36.5". I went with a size medium. Check out the photo I posted to see the fit of it. Lastly, the only peeve I have with the jacket is that the powder skirt is not removable. If that doesn't bother you, I definitely recommend this jacket! I love it!
