I'm wondering how this compares to my current Mountain Hardwear jacket. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of it and can't find it online, but I attached a pic. I got it in 2008, though it was probably a 2007 issue. It's been a great late fall to winter jacket that I've used when it's too cold for a light fleece but not cold enough for a heavy coat. However, I've lost a good bit of weight since 2008 and now I'm positively swimming in it since it's an XL. I'm not quite 6' (say 5'11.5") and 179 lbs. I wear a medium in most things now, but sounds like I might need to consider large based on the reviews. (If the pic doesn't upload it looks like the Monkey Man without the fuzz and has a black zippered patch on the left arm.)
I was also looking at the Columbia Ballistic II, but haven't been able to see one in person to get an idea of how well it would fit my needs for a moderate cold-weather jacket. Thoughts on the two?
