I've had my eye on this item for a year or two. I wanted a replacement for my micro-grid mid-layer and was tired of waiting for Melanzana. I was put on a waitlist for this item and when it became available I went for it.
I'm a little over 6 feet and around 220 lbs. My chest size is about 44 but the Large was a little snug. I got the XL and it fits much better. My biggest gripe about this item is the LENGTH. It's like wearing a tunic. No idea why it's like this unless you're tucking it into your pants.
I will say I'm happy about the grid material, despite what others have said. It is warm but breathable. The chest pocket material does feel like paper though. I would like to think it's made of something durable but we will see how long it lasts.
Overall I want to love this thing but the length just makes it feel weird.
