I have an older version of this jacket, sans pit-zips and with pockets placed lower on the jacket. I've been wearing it for...at least three years and it is still my go to jacket for when performance matters. eVent is a vastly superior fabric (I've tried them all) and breaths very well. The only thing that would make this jacket better, in my opinion, would be a powder skirt. It's an expensive shell, but it will last a very long time.

This tent is the tent other tents are designed after. It's light, water-tight and you'll fit just right. I have heard some say it's too short for the tall type, but at 6'2" I find it fine. The two doors/vestibules make for a quiet exit for a midnight pee and the cross ventilation cannot compare to single door tents. It is pricey but it will last you longer than you'll need it to and is absolutely worth it. The hub and pole system takes a little getting used to, but you can do it.

I was super resistant to the grigri after learning with an ATC, but I have grown to appreciate it. It's just as easy to belay with as an ATC (when you get used to it) and adds an extra layer of safety incase someone freaks out. The best part of using it is while belaying my child and can use both hands to help him out.

The Bionic is a great "casual jacket". It is, at best, 40F comfortable. I am <5'11" and 150# athletic and wear a medium. This jacket is v. slightly tight (but stretchy) in the shoulders, long in the sleeves, but wide in the body and waist. You may be happier with the Pamir. It is an athletic cut with room for layers, and would rate it 45F. Both are great jackets, but i think the Pamir is more technical, and the Bionic more everyday.I am 6'2" 200lbs and the large fits me great in the arm length, but a little wide in the torso. It's not annoyingly wide and gives you plenty of room for the layers you will need if it get really cold. I think the medium for you would be too short in the arms and torso.
