Great shell! loaded with features, fit is definitely loose but right where you want it, perfect for layering a flan and hoodie. I'm 6'2" 170 got an XL and couldn't be happier. Get compliments everywhere on it slopes/office/around town. The top material is unique, it feels, looks, and performs incredibly. It is charcoal and not black.
To address zipper concerns, it has a great 'waterproofing' seal like most high end rain jackets so don't expect to yank it up, it takes a slow pull. The other zippers aren't burly, but so far no issues. Really though, they do have a 180 day Manufacturer Warranty, so there is no need for passive aggressive jabs at your local shops.
GET IT! You can look, but you will not beat this quality and style for the price.
