Hi all,

I am 6'1, 165 lbs looking to get up to about 180 of lean mass. Anyways, what size should I be looking at for this jacket? If I have to put it over an OR softshell, will a medium work? Or should I be looking at a large?

Have an OR Alibi size medium coming my way soon.

Thanks!

I'm 5'9" and have the medium. It fits a little long on me -- actually about 3 inches, so probably pretty good for you. Said another way, the bottom of the jacket is about 7 inches below the top of my pants. The photo below shows the jacket along side a measuring tape. From neck to hem, it is 27 inches. As for layering, I have a 41" chest, and can certainly get a base+mid layer under the jacket.

I"m a similar build as you. 6'2" 185lbs. I tried on the medium and it fit snug but had full range of motion with minimal room for layers. I ended up with the large and its perfect. fits my big puffy jackets underneath with out looking inflated and loose enough without layers that I'm not swimming in it.

I am 6 foot and 180 - 195 depending how much I run during the winter. The large fit great with an arcteryx hyllus or atom lt under it depending on how cold it is.

I am 130lbs and 5'10'' do you think a medium would be too big for me?

liam, the medium should be fine! It fits trim but since you're taller you'll need the length of the medium.
