Got this in the black and grey for my wife a month ago to go with the stoic knickers and she loves it! It has a great cellphone/ipod pocket on it that really does a good job of holding whatever it is in there (i would not recommend putting your keys in it however). She has large athletic shoulders and arms for a woman and the arm holes haven't been a problem for her. Its a heavier weight then you would think which is flattering but not hot at all. In short she loves it and has used it for kayaking and paddle boarding.
