Reviewer:AnonymousLocation:Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Review:Quality: My first Alpha M-65 field jacket and all the reviews on quality are correct - this is an excellent quality jacket - you won't be disappointed. Sizing: However, I'm going to throw a wrench into all the comments posted on sizing. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs and I'm rather slight in build and not athletic. I've worn many M-65 'non-Alpha' field jackets over the years for both hunting as well as for a cold weather coat. I live in Wisconsin and our winters can get rather brutal, so I always wear a liner with my field jacket, and I often wear a sweatshirt or heavy shirt under that. After reading the sizing comments about buying one size smaller than usual in the Alpha jacket, I labored for days on making a decision - all my field jackets in the past that fit correctly with the liner and heavier shirt underneath were size Medium. The Smalls were too tight in the armpits and across the shoulders to feel comfortable. But given all the 'buy one size smaller' comments and thinking that the high-quality of the Alpha jacket might translate into a better, slightly larger jacket overall, with no skimping on material to control manufacture costs, I gave in and ordered a Small. Result: Too small. So I had to re-order a Medium and am happy that I did. Now I will admit that the Medium Alpha with the liner is slightly roomier than the 'off-brand' Mediums, but I'm ok with that. The field jacket is supposed to be a bit baggy - that's how they're designed to be worn. They're not supposed to be a 'fitted' jacket. If that's what you're after, then you probably shouldn't be buying a field jacket. Bottom line on sizing: If you're my size and build, and you have no intention of wearing a liner or anything under the jacket, the Medium will be too large. But if you're in cold weather and plan to be using the liner and wearing stuff underneath, go with the Medium. It'll be a bit on the roomy side, but at least it won't pinch your armpits.

Review:Just arrived. Fits well. Regarding the fitting. A tiny bit over-sized. With the liner - it's a normal fit. Looks and feels decent!
