I bought it for my partner. It is very well made and fits well. He is getting grey, and the brown looks very good on him.

I own a Patagonia fleece shirt and dig the fit and feel. I was wanting a brown fleece jacket and decided to go with the simple synchilla. I work in the cold storage industry and have been wearing this to the office 2 to 3 times per week. It's really warm and nice enough to wear with slacks and chinos. Based on other reviews I decided to go with a size Large. I'm 5 ft 11 in 185 and typically wear Large but this jacket fits a bit boxy and sleeves are just a little long. It'll work fine for me as an outer layer since I primarily wear it to work over long sleeve collared shirts and an undershirt. I'm thinking a size Medium would have been better for technical use on the trail as the mid-layer under a shell. I'm considering getting a Medium in black for this. Bottom line this is nice and warm but you'll probably have extra room in your regular size. Size down for a technical fit.
