6'2 Tall and 195lbs, medium frame. Large or XL?

Also,how will this jacket perform for winter running vs. the M.H transition soft-shell? The Transition is great, but unless its 20-30degrees, I tend to get a little overheated even with the jacket alone.
Thanks

mikelj. I would probably get an XL due to the fact that the Desna has a pretty 'active' fit. The Desna is made with 'hard faced' powerstretch fleece which is pretty wind resistant but it has no wind blocking laminate like the Transition Jacket. I think this would be a great piece for winter running for this reason. Another Jacket to consider would be the Super Power Hooded Fleece Jacket from Mountain Hardwear as well. It is even in our Excel Run collection! I hope this info helps!
