Fila Jackets

FILA stands for Freaky Ichabod Likes- well, okay, we can't really say that last word. And, anyway, it's kind of slanderous for poor Ichabod, right? All he wanted to do was wear a nice jacket to keep warm. Know what? Starting now, FILA stands for Fine Interesting Lords of fAshion. Problem solved.

One thing to keep in mind from my last Fila order from Woot: the sizes are much larger than normal. A small feels is more like a medium, a medium is pretty much a large, and so on. Get one size smaller than what you normally get.

A note about the red (since there were lots of concerns about it last time), the jacket is actually the vibrant red color you see in the second picture. It is not the washed-out salmon color seen in the main picture.

Thank you Kay, this is exactly what I came here to find out. You rock.

I bought the gray one and it not only looks as good as the comparable North Face jackets, it's virtually indistinguishable from many of them. Good construction, too.

I bought the grey/black and ordered it in large. It fit's right to size in my experience.

I got one of these last time in was on sale. Great jacket that I wear all the time. (Not really. I take it off to sleep.) I found that it fits normally, though loose enough to go over a sweater. Got stuck in a rainstorm today and it kept me pretty dry.

Bummer! The Large grey Descent jacket was there, and then it was gone when I went to buy it a moment later. Hey Woot, if anyone cancels their order for the Large Descent in grey, let me know!

We bought a couple last time. Very happy with them, and have had complements on them! Love the zipper pockets to stuff the phone or eye glasses in

How warm and water resistant are they? How warm would they keep you in NYC winter weather (20-40 F)?

Light weight jacket, but fairly wind and water resistant. I've worn it in 20-degree Chicago weather with a sweater or 40 degrees without a sweater. But then I like cold weather. It's not a heavy winter coat.

Bought the grey one. Nice jacket! Excellent shell over a fleece pullover or sweater. Good water resistance in a light rain.

Maybe obvious, but what Is the difference between Ascent and Descent jackets?

eeeep Like a dork, I forgot to read the comments before I bought, and I think I may have ordered a size (or two) too big oh well, over sweater will have to do.

I echo these sentiments. I'm a normal-sized man boy, I bought a small KNOWING that I needed to "size down" and it's still too big for me to wear. At least not in the style I'm accustomed to. Perhaps if it was 1992 and big was in...

Question on sizing. Two posts say they run one size larger, but there are several other posts that say they run true to size.

Which one is it?

I'm 5'10, 185 lbs, athletic build. I'm thinking a large will work (which is my normal size).

Big diff is the shoulders. Some difference in pockets as well.

I purchased a red jacket last time and it is a nice color. Not super bright. Get lots of compliments. The jacket is very nice. I normally wear XL in women's and purchased XL and it works.

I had the opposite experience. I'm right on the border of L/XL and ordered the L due to the posts about size last time this jacket (the Ascent) was offered. It arrived yesterday and if anything feels like a big Medium. I'm prob going to have to give it away (b/c that's easier than dropping 10-15 lbs haha). Really hoping they offer these again soon so I can go with the XL.

People, these run TRUE TO SIZE for the sizing chart. Don't be confused by the statements saying they run large or small. They match the dimensions of the sizing chart, period. Their XL might not be your version of an XL, but that's why you should look at the dimensions.

I measured myself and compared it to the sizing chart, but the medium I received is way too big! Bummer!
