Great spring jacket. I would have preferred snaps to buttons on sleeve but that's a small item.
Superior Windbreaker -

Great inside pockets: 2 full wallet size (one of these with a zipper); 1 ink pen pocket; 1 cell phone pocket. Inconspicuous elbow pleats to reduce elbow wear when arm is bent. Extra pleat joins back with each sleeve to facilitate arm movement. Light elastic at waist. Bought both colors (deep olive and midnight) - go with almost anything. Note that lining is net-like fabric - no insulating properties, but good for easy on and off over shirts - perfect weight for my use, but important to note this is more of a true windbreaker than light jacket.
My husband liked the quality, fit, etc.; but returned it because he didn't like the color. It was a true Midnight Blue that was too dark for him.
Great jacket with one flaw -
By: Coastsider from SF Bay Area, CA
This is a great looking jacket, nice construction, comfortable fit. The only problem is the material, particularly the synthetic liner. It does not breath well, especially during physical activity, and can leave the wearer feeling hot and bothered. It would be a big improvement to use natural materials or "wicking" synthetics that allow better ventilation.

I never used to like this style of jacket, but realised a need for something lightweight, with a degree of warmth and weather resistance that I could wear while driving, without sitting on my coat-tails. This is ideal, and, I've decided, good-looking, especially with chinos and a button-down shirt. Mine's olive, which is a fairly dark shade - more of a pine. As others have written, Orvis sizes can be generous; I fall between M and L, but I chose L because the sleeve-length was better and the overall fit was more relaxed.
