I just received my vest in record time (as per usual with backcountry orders) and I'm in love! I ordered this baby in a size 10 in the zinc. I was a little worried when I ordered it considering some of the other reviewers concerns about sizing and that the color might be too pink/mauvey for me. However, there was no need for worry. I'm 5'9" and 155 lbs and have a really long torso, the fit on this is perfect, it's long enough that it hits right below my hips, and roomy enough for layering (keep in mind I'm not trying to fit anything bulky under it). I think a size 8 might have even worked if I'd wanted a more slim fit, but I would have sacrificed some length. The color is mostly a nice grey sheen with just maybe a hint of pink/mauve . . . I'm not into pink and I think it's beautiful. Haven't field tested this yet, but I think it's going to be perfect as a layer for back country skiing and for walking around during spring time in the rockies.
