The jacket is excellent quality. Based on my measurements it was recommended I order up a size from the size I planned to order, which was already one size larger then I normally wear. I am very sedentary now and expanding in the middle. I did order up one size from my normal size and it is a little large, but is okay as I do NOT like snug jackets. I could have gone down a size to my normal size okay I think. It is light weight yet very warm, just right for our Oklahoma fall/winter/spring seasons. My Lodge Master and Secretary like it so well I think they too are going to order.
