Bought the large size, I am a 6 ft tall guy, I weigh 180 lbs. The fit is good, I like that you can easily adjust the gasket on the waist. There's no hood on this jacket but if you are wearing a cap you should be ok. It offers plenty of protection against wind and spray. It's easy to remove too, which is nice in the afternoons when it gets warmer.
I don't generally applaud businesses, but I believe in giving credit where it's due. I was a bit dismayed that I had to pay $5 shipping with this order (Hobie product--go figure...) but Southwind delivered this as a priority package when I paid for ground shipping. I got it in two days even though I wasn't expecting it for another week. I order online a lot and this is the first time that has ever happened to me. As for the jacket, I've had this since the beginning of the summer and I'm pleased to say it's perfect for every paddling occasion. The material is a little bit thicker than a traditional windbreaker, yet it's still comfortable and breathable in the hot sun. It keeps you dry as long as you tighten the cuffs and waistband. I think this will be handy in the winter as long as you layer something warm underneath. I'm back to buy one for the wife!
