tight (1)

adjective; other word formation type widening
Used to describe something that’s really good (situation or object).
 
Tight, man. I can't believe it worked out that well.
Etymology : One of the original meanings of tight was used to describe maneuvers or routines that were particularly well done. From there, the meaning probably shifted through widening to include when anything was well done. So if a situation worked out well, it could be described as tight.
