I needed to replace an old jacket and I stumbled upon this Wanaka jacket at a local store. It was on sale but I was bummed they only had a medium. I usually wear a large in most coats and sweaters. I think I even have a size large Patagonia fleece jacket. But when I tried it on it was perfect. I'm 6'0" 160 lbs. I have long arms and these are just fine. I can't imagine wearing a large in this jacket, but I didn't have one to compare to. I use on early morning boat rides where it is often 20 - 40 degrees F at the dock and with the wind chill of the open boat at 35 mph it can be a bit chilly. With the zip up neck and the wind flap and the shell material and the quilted down interior, it is nice and warm. I am stoked to have found this jacket and it looks like it is built to last a long time.
I got this jacket years ago when it first came out & we've been through snow storms and hurricanes. Only now is the DWR starting to show signs of wear around the cuffs and shoulders. The H2No technology is excellent; waterproof, breathable & does a great job of blocking the wind.
My only gripe is the slight bulkiness of the jacket. If you have a silm build you might want to size down. But for those with broad shoulders/torsos, your upper half is going to look ever slightly buffer because you'll probably have to go with your normal sizing for fear of it being too tight if you down-size. And if you're like me, who's vertically challenged (5'4) and broad shouldered, order the XS, look like michelin tire man and love the jacket =] because it's excellent at what it does.
Moral of the story: Make sure you try it on in-store not only to find the right sizing, but also to determine if you like the slight bulk this jacket has.
Wonderful jacket. Looks very cool. Got it in black to wear around town but I could definitely use it on the mountain also. This technology does breathe while maintaining it waterproofing ability. This is especially nice when going inside for a minute. I'm always hot anyways so I really can't stand jackets that don't breathe. The sizing is "normal," not too big, not too small. I'm 5'10" 235lbs and the XXL is fine for me. I pretty much wear XXL in everything. Bottom line is that with Patagonia, you know you're getting quality. Arms are just a tad long but I just tighten the button on the end of the sleeves and problem solved. It has down but I don't walk around looking like pillsbury doughboy because of too much down. I see myself using this for many years to come. Thanks backcountry....
Black oak looks nothing like the picture. At all. Looks like grey or navy. Now I have to pay for return shipping. Stupid online shopping. Buyer beware.
