    Hi, does anyone have this jacket?
    I am a short and muscular (166 cm and 75 kgs) guy with quite a substantial chest so I was wondering if I should go for a large or a medium. My chest is 103-104 cm. As a reference a ghost whisperer size medium is nice and snug without much room for layering .

    So I ordered and received the jacket in large. I am sure that some of you already know that I should have bought the extra large. The problem is the sleeves, they are just too narrow especially around the armpits. It seems to me that Cumulus needs to redesign that specific area cause it's way off with the rest of the jacket. As a result the jacket feels comfortable with just a t shirt underneath. So I will have to return an otherwise amazing jacket. What a pity.

    The Incredilite is exactly the same

    Shoulders, upper arms and waist hem are far to fitted, sent mine back

    Try the Crux offerings. Similar specs but maybe fit better? Dunno.

    I tried the Crux but found the sizing way out. Same as @Charlie83 had with the Incredilite.

    Ah ok
    My crux nano(?) is "athletic" fit but not unwearable. Similar to some Montane.
    I'd prefer it a little more roomy.

    Have a crux myself and yes it’s an athletic fit, it’s a medium which is what i normally wear. I can get it over a few layers including my OR deviator. Think the guy who owns crux also owns lightwave. He’s great on communication, emails back personally within a few hours :)
