    what temps did you find the jacket useful? i’m trying to compare it with the patagonia nano air and can’t decide what is better.

    their site lists it as a trim fit … not sure if you’re familiar with outdoor research’s other jackets … but it would be good to know if it’ll fit under their trim fit shell.

    Hi Calvin,

    It depends on what you are using it for. I’ve been wearing this piece to work and also on the hill. I find for casual wear you can comfortably go up to 40F. For active sports, I would not recommend this jacket above 30F. Even though this jacket does a great job dumping heat, I found it to be too hot while skiing above 30F.

    They list it as a trim fit, but I think its bleeds into a standard fit. I am 5’9″ and generally prefer a “standard” fit. I found that this jacket fit me perfectly and fell somewhere between a trim/standard fit. If i used this piece exclusively for layering and wanted it to be more athletic I might have sized down.

    Hope this helps.
