How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I'm 5'9" and 135lbs. I usually wear a medium in jackets and I bought this one without ever trying it on. I was a little disappointed at how large the jacket was on me, but by cinching the bottom bungee I was able to make it fit a little better. I was afraid to trade it in for the small because then the arms might have been too short. I think the jacket looks a little frumpy overall because of the two materials --- one holds shape stronger and the other one kinda droops, so you end up looking a little frumpy in it. It's also not as warm as I was hoping it would be. But I love the color and do think this jacket is a nice addition to my, ever growing, jacket collection. It is good at blocking the wind. A good fall or spring jacket - especially when layering.
