I am a size large in 75% of my jackets; the other 25%, I'm a medium. I like a slim, athletic fit (hence why I'm often a medium when I'm right on the line -- I could wear a large, but it would be baggier than I prefer).
My large showed up yesterday. I looked like Chris Farley in Tommy Boy...fat man in a little coat (I'm 6'2", 185, not fat). It looked like I borrowed it from my 11 year old sister. barely reached my belt, and cut way up under the armpits. When I zipped I wondered if the chest seems would split. I really wonder if they mislabeled a small by mistake.
When I read reviews like this, I always think "hmmm, I bet this person wants a baggy fit and that's why they think its small". Nope. I bought this specifically to layer under a shell that in and of itself is a bit snug. So I want this to be snug -- a sweater, not a jacket.
I feel like an XL might work for me as a snug layer, or XXL if I was looking to put layers under it.
The jacket may perform fine, I wouldn't know -- it just sucks I have to pay $10 to send this back to DoG because of the single most ridiculous sizing I've ever encountered.

Winters in Michigan get pretty cold. Wind chill's in the negative digits right now. This sweater is the perfect insulator. I wear it under my Cloudveil Firsturn and I am perfectly warm. I am 5'11" and 160lbs and the medium is a pretty good fit. I am in LOVE with this thing and I cannot wait to go skiing again to see how warm I stay. I would definitely pick this baby up if I were in search of a decently priced, light insulator. BUY IT!

I like this jacket. Not my favorite color (Lime) but it's a GREAT baselayer jacket underneath just about anything.
Very warm by itself - down to about 25-30 degrees with just a basic undershirt. I like the sleeves and it's a solid addition to have the elastic cuffs underneath. Good features (iPod pocket). Great features (warm pocket lining). Overall a good value. No, you may not pick up the ladies at the club in the Lime or Tangerine version. But you'll stay warmer than the posers.

I am amazed at how warm this thin jacket is! Matter of fact, all zipped up - it can get quite hot. With no pit zips, you can't really vent any of your heat, but then again you shouldn't be using it for really active sports. I mainly wear it day to day when it's not raining, at temps between 15-40 degrees. I am 6'2, 200lbs, and the XL seems a little bit big, but not too much. A L would probably fit better, I just didn't want to run the risk it would be too short for my long arms. Overall, it is MUCH better than I expected. I admit it was an impulse buy - but I'm glad I did!

This layer is my favorite price to wear under my shell. It's light and warm. The stichting that some have said comes out has not been a problem for me and I wear this thing all the time. I am hard on my gear and spend tons of time in the mountains. It is a no brainer, stoic has not let me down. I am 6' and 165lb and got the large, fits good. Just get it and stand apart.
