My bf just got hotter
Bought this for my bf because he's a hardcore climbing junkie who enjoys quality/light weight products on his adventures. During his trip to Aconcagua, he decided not to pack anything with a hood because he thought it would unnecessary weight to his pack. However, he realized the err of his ways and was looking for the perfect hoodie to take on his next trip. He was highly impressed with the quality, amount of pockets/zippers, and weightless feel of the fabric. It fits like a glove. Also, I now have the title of best gf in the world!

Great styling and function
I wear the medium and I am 5'9" 160 lbs with broad shoulders. I would call it the perfect fit for allowing a thin downy or fleece without feeling bulky or looking overblown when worn with only a t shirt. The Ultimate is very light, so do not look to it for insulation below the 50s if not in the middle of aerobic activity. The hood fits very well WITHOUT a helmet, so keep that in mind. The material can prone to snags, so I reserve more abrasive activities like climbing and thorn-bush-wacking for my Super Hero.

A nice jacket for spring and fall
One of the lightest windproof jackets on the market. Feel very comfortable wearing it. The fabric is thin, and without insulation, it may not provide enough warmth for winter use. A perfect softshell for windy days in spring and fall. This jacket got a trim cut, you may want to go one size up if you are going to wear it over a midlayer.

It's the ultimate hoodie.
This is my go to jacket. It's surprisingly warm for it's weight, and the windstopper does wonders for, well, wind. Pit zips that go the length of the jacket give awesome breathability and unfettered access to gear on your harness. Baffled collar is great. Keeps warmth in and wind away from your neck. I wear this jacket climbing, biking, around town, sitting at home. Buy it if you are looking for an alpine style wind layer.
