I've been looking on-line for the right type of light weight jacket for golf and walking. I tried a number of them Oakley, Ping, Adidas and UA. None of them felt right and I sent them all back because they were too long, too loose and / or did not fit in the middle.

Normally I wear XL (6-2, 200lbs), but I purchased the L and it fit perfectly. This is a great product and worth the money.

The jacket is stylish and has a cord on the bottom that can be tightened. The jacket moves well and is water resistant. If you were ever caught in a massive storm, this won't work, but it passed the water under the faucet test.

I highly recommend this jacket.

I am now struggling with the fit since the L is tight and the XL is turning out to be real loose plus the cuff on the sleeve is huge. I cannot imagine wearing this on a windy day due to the size of the cuffs. Will probably return it for that reason. Excluding the size of the cuff it is actually a cool product since the size issue is a me issue.

      Comments about The North Face Nimble Jacket:

      This jacket is extremely light and will keep your body warm in light wind and rain. It's very comfortable to wear and is a great product. Now remember that this is only my opinion and yours may differ.

                  Comments about The North Face Nimble Jacket:

                  Perfect as an outer layer for outdoor activity and works just as well as a middle layer for when I snowboard. The only thing preventing me from giving this 5 stars is that the zipper goes down to my diaphragm. It is a more sensitive area and feeling the zipper base press against it is a bit discomforting. Raise the base of the zipper up 2 inches so it rests on the sternum.

                  As for looks, I've gotten complements on the nice shade of blue color that I got, as well as the fit - not too tight, not too baggy.

                        The nimble pull over is a great item for active or casual wear. The wind and water resistant material make it perfect for wearing during bike rides on a brisk day. This year's model also feels more comfortable and the 1/2 zip is an improvement from last year's 1/4 zip.

                            Really liked the look and style of this pullover. Unfortunately the material made the jacket very tight and clingy. Some may like the feeling, but not really comfortable for me.

                              I am now struggling with the fit since the L is tight and the XL is turning out to be real loose plus the cuff on the sleeve is huge. I cannot imagine wearing this on a windy day due to the size of the cuffs. Will probably return it for that reason. Excluding the size of the cuff it is actually a cool product since the size issue is a me issue.

                              1st one that I bought was a L and was really tight and XL is big but keeping it. The sleeves at the wrist was almost a deal breaker except I really like the look.

                                    I've been looking on-line for the right type of light weight jacket for golf and walking. I tried a number of them Oakley, Ping, Adidas and UA. None of them felt right and I sent them all back because they were too long, too loose and / or did not fit in the middle.

                                    Normally I wear XL (6-2, 200lbs), but I purchased the L and it fit perfectly. This is a great product and worth the money.

                                    The jacket is stylish and has a cord on the bottom that can be tightened. The jacket moves well and is water resistant. If you were ever caught in a massive storm, this won't work, but it passed the water under the faucet test.

                                    I highly recommend this jacket.
