Hi, I am 5'8" 140lbs. Not sure if I should get a Small or Medium?

Responded on

I am 5'10" and 140, and I wear a medium in Arc'terex gear.

The Epsilon is designed as a trim fit jacket that works great as a layer under hard shells, as well as a stand alone with lots of breathability and moderate weather protection. If you'll use it like this, a small would fit best. For more outerwear use, with room for a thicker layer under, a medium could work.

I'm 5'10" and a little under 140 and most Arc Smalls are either a little roomy or too darn big for me. I have a scrawny runner's body, i.e., no chest, so maybe that's the difference. I've tried the Epsilon on and found that a Small seems pretty good. Even the sleeves are only a little long on me, another problem I have in getting the right fit.

I'm 5'8" 145 and the small is definitely the one to get. It fits properly on it's own and has just enough room for an Atom LT or lighter weight fleece underneath (100 wt fits well, 200 starts to get a little snug). Anything larger and I'd likely be swimming in it.
