I was looking to replace a Mountain Tech Jacket that I've had since 2001. The styling of the G-50 caught my eye. It's a little lighter, great for cool mornings and easy to stow away once it warms up. I'm 5'10" and 175 lbs. and the large is a good fit with room for a fleece top if needed.
I would recommend this product.

I have only had the jacket for a few weeks. It was everything I was looking for in a light versatile winter/rain/wind breaker/jacket. I wanted a light jacket that would serve as a rain jacket (for spring and fall) and a winter jacket (for Louisiana). With recent below freezing weather, I was able to use a warm fleece as a layer under the G50 to allow for its comfortable use in cold weather. I can't comment about how well it will hold up long term, but to date, I am very happy with my purchase. The jacket is very comfortable, has nice pockets, that also serve as air vents, and allows one good mobility when wearing the jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Stays dry and surprisingly warm but with excellent breathability. So far used for backcountry skiing and wearing around town. Well-sized.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a warm soft shell for daily winter wear. Unfortunately, this is not the jacket for that. It is very thin. It is a great windbreaker though!
I decided to double up this jacket with my MH Bedlam fleece. Together they keep me toasty and allow me to move.
The XL I got was a little bit big in the arm length. But that was OK... as I can wear a fleece under it. Once it warms up I can loose the fleece and the G50 will be perfect.
I would recommend this product.

As a man of large stature, sometimes it is difficult to find clothes that fit perfectly. I'm 6' 2", 240lbs, with a 52" chest, so I decided to go with the XXL. As far as fit goes, it is perfect in the chest and arm length, but feels a bit big around the mid-section... like it was designed for a beer belly. I'm not sure how many beer guts are really needing top of the line outdoor apparell, but if i ever decide to have one, I won't have to get a new jacket. As far as performance, this thing is bone dry. Haven't seen any wind or actual cold with it, but so far, so good.
I would recommend this product.
