not sure why the item description includes the word "jacket", it is definitely just a nice mid-layer that provides warmth when worn over a base-layer. I love the hood, it fits very well under a helmet. I have worn it cross-country skiing when it's cold out (under a soft-shell) or by it self when the temps are mild. Love it for snowboarding under my jacket. Quite a lovely piece. It's very fitted -- and on the sizing chart my bust & shoulders are a medium but my hips are a large. So I went with a medium and i like for an active but fitted piece. but if i was going to wear it as a fleece with nothing over it, i'd probably wish i had a large.

Love Love Love
The fit is excellent and the fabric is delightful. I appreciate the hood fitting snugly so that it stays on in the wind and the thumb holes in the sleeves are great for keeping the wind from blowing up the sleeves.

A Favorite piece
I own 2 of these from OR and love them for an active life style. I wear mine xc skiing all the time and I love the snug but comfy fit and the thumb holes are perfect with a mitt or glove. The hood fits snug around your head not big and bulky like some hoodies.

Thumb holes make all the difference
This is a light jacket, rather like a sweater, but thinner and snuggly soft. Being able to hold the sleeves down with the thumb holes adds to its layering qualities. Beware of the sizing, it is form-fitted. If you like a baggier feel, buy a size or two bigger than usual.
