This jacket is great. Fits amazing. I'm 5'11" 170 lbs with broad shoulders and I can fit a thin layer underneath with enough room to not make it uncomfortable. Only thing I have against the jacket is that the pockets seem really small. The two front bottom cargo pockets are only big enough to fit one of my short cuff gloves. Other than that I love it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
