How is the fit? Small, large? Also how's the mobility while wearing it?
Hi, east or bust.
As huhh says above, fit is extremely important. So, here's my observation:
I'm 6'1", 195#. On top, I normally wear a leightweight polypro underlayer and put a midweight microfleece 1/4-zip over that. In most North American-brand jackets like Marmot, Patagonia, TNF, Arcteryx, I'm pretty well in the middle of a Large size. In most Euro jackets like Kjus, Millet, Mammut, I have to go to an extra large to have them be comfortably looseish (which is the way I like my jackets to fit).
In the Flylow, I am actually wearing a Medium. I really debated between the M and L and eventually decided that the L was a fair bit too loose. The M is slightly tighter than I might normally prefer, but I can still add an extra clothing layer and wear my digital slr camera (it's fairly big) around my neck and zip the coat with acceptable comfort. Now that I've worn it awhile, I'm glad I bought the M as I think the L would have been just too big.
The mobility is great. I never give it a thought.
I don't know if that helps or not, but there you are.
