Another size question: I'm 6' 175lbs with an athletic build (31 waist but I wear a 42-43 suit jacket). Should I go medium or large if I plan on using this for skiing and may need to layer a mid weight fleece or Patagonia ultralight down underneath. I don't want a baggy fit but I don't want to be constricted in the shoulders or pits either. Thanks.

Most of their stuff does runs shorts for the size. I really figured the hardshells wouldn't, considering it is your outer layer and should be larger then the other garments they sell. Sherpa could really benefit from adding tall sizes.

So I ended up ordering both. The M was fine at the shoulders and chest with just a light or mid baselayer and a little tight with a thicker layer. The arm and body length, however, are fairly short on this jacket. I have normal length arms and torso for my size, and the length of the arms and the body on the L are just barely adequate and definitely not ideal - another inch or more on both would be perfect - and unworkable on the M.

I have 3 Sherpa jackets, none that are harshell though, and I have to wear an XXL with a 46-48 chest. I am 6'5 250lbs with broad shoulders and an athletic build. The XXLs fit me very well. A little tight in the shoulders, but the rest is spot on, and I like a fitted look. In your case, if you have broad shoulders, I would go with the Large.

Aside from the length issues (see my other post on the sleeve and body length), this is a nice jacket and great for the price - lightweight, lots of pockets, breathable with good ventilation and ridiculously comfortable. Seriously, this is easily the most comfortable insulated hard shell I've ever tried on, which I attribute to the soft/lightweight/stretchy outer fabric, the lightweight (40g) Primo One insulation and the fleece lined collar. The downside of that comfort is that the fabric is so soft and lightweight that it doesn't exactly shout durable (or even whisper it for that matter), but only time will tell.
Other nits: the hood brim is a bit too small/short; no interior zippered pocket; hand pockets are outside of the insulation so they don't much other than block wind; collar is a bit tighter than ideal (especially if you have a collared midlayer underneath) and shorter than ideal for resort skiing (you can't get it up past your chin while on lifts) and the stitching is a bit below average.
I tried half a dozen other lightly insulated shells (Arc Teryx, OR, Patagonia, MH, TNF, Mammut), all of which were substantially more expensive, and for resort skiing decided that this one was the best for me regardless of price - the others were either too heavy, too warm, too bulky or not breathable enough.
Last but not least, the waterproof and breathability ratings are wrong both on this site and on the product tag that comes with the jacket. According to Sherpa, the wp laminate is rated 20/20 (not 10/20 as it says on this site or 10/10 as it says on the product tag), BUT the breathability rating is for the laminate alone, and the actual breathability rating for the jacket with the insulation and the lining is going to be less than 20k. That said, that's almost always the case with breathability ratings on insulated jackets which rarely if ever factor in the insulation and lining, and with the pitzips breathability has not been an issue for me.
Just wondering on the sizing for Sherpa Adventures Gear. I'm 5'9" about 180 pounds. Any idea on fit; "regular" is such a great description.
