I'm the type that reads countless reviews before buying anything. With the endless positive reviews reguarding the monkey man, I pulled the trigger. Wow, this really is a jacket your going to love. I wear this jacket as much as I can, seriosly. Sometimes I wear it going to bed, not to mention it feels great when your shirtless. Yeah the sleeves do run long, but its really not that big of a deal. Coat is PERFECT for layering. Super breathable, super comfy, and yeah its a little expensive but you get what you pay for. [The northface denali is $165, and this is a much better fleece in my opinion) As for looks, I was questioning how the "shag carpet" look would be. Honestly, it looks like a sweet jacket when you have it on, not girly at all. I got the new grey jacket, and I like how mountain hardwear took out the yellow letters and replaced it with grey, looks nice. Yeah so just buy the jacket already, you wont find a better winter layering piece, and nice in the fall and spring too.
Im 6,1" and 160, got the Large and it fits great
Sidenote: I've bought quite a few items from Mountain Hardear (Dragon Claw Gloves, shirts, microgrid fleece, Fluid 18 Backpack) and they have amazing quality, you really can't go wrong). Watch out North Face! If anyone wants to see a pic, like my review and I'll throw one up
