i got it to replace a Smoke Rise nylon flight jacket of the M1-A style. This nylon / rayon blend on the shell is much tougher, warmer but not as soft and flexible so it tends to ride up my back a little, unlike the first one because that has side zips to open it up and was so much more flexible. The size is exactly the same in the M. I expect this issue to get better as it breaks in and i learn to stand up straight ,so its definitely a keeper, its perfect for even the coldest temps of our mild winter in southern California. I give it all the stars just beware of the riding up, you might want to get a size bigger. I am 5 9 will a longish back , size M. arms are perfect for my normal length arms, size 37 R
