Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

I am 6'0 190-195 lbs and normally wear a size Large in Arcteryx or Patagonia. I ordered this jacket in a size XL because I knew that Norrona products were European sizing and thus needed to size up. I was correct. This jacket fits me the same as my Patagonia R1. The outside of the jacket is a fuzzy soft material with some non-fuzzy material on the sides of the jacket and the backside of the arms. The arms are tight and long and the hole for your thumb is a nice touch. The neck is not too large and provides good coverage without being too floppy.

A nice mid-layer jacket and the purple color is deep and fantastic!

I'm trying to compare this jacket to the Gamma MX hoody. I have a Gamma MX hoody sitting in my closet with the tags still on it at the moment and am trying to decide if I should keep it or look into the Gamma SL Hybrid hoody.

I am planning on some alpine climbing and snow shoe winter activities, and would also like to know if you could wear this for skiing. Also, I own an Alpha LT hardshell which layers well over the Gamma MX however I am wondering how the Alpha LT would layer over the Gamma SL Hybrid Hoody - would the Gamma SL Hybrid hoody breathe ok under the hardshell?

Hi - I own a pair of Nepal Evo Gtx boots in a size 45. I usually wear a very thin Bridgedale liner sock and then a medium-weight Bridgedale wool sock in the Nepals.

My questions are: is sizing similar in these boots as compared to the Nepal Evos? And assuming I want to wear them for Spring, Summer and Fall activities, would you recommend a lighter wool sock? And if so, would that affect the size I would wear?

Thanks in advance. Hope my questions were not confusing.
