I'm 6'3" 225# and a 44 Long. My trollveggen is an XXL is fits extremely well and gives me enough room to layer comfortably. The cinch strap inside of the pocket allows you to basically adjust the fit. Loosen it up to layer, and tighten it up without layers so it isn't too baggy.

My *only* 'complaint' is the 'backwards' zipper.

It's really a great jacket.

I've owned my A Frames for ~10 years, and they've always looked great & performed extremely well. After 10 seasons of use, I managed to scratch my lens a couple of weeks ago. Ordered a replacement lens (HI Persimmon) and installed it last night. Goggles are as good as new.

Highly recommended this product.

I picked up a typhoon last winter and it quickly became one of my favorites. Obviously it's extremely lightweight, and does nothing to keep you warm, but that's part of it's versatility. I've used this coat to keep dry in tropical conditions (Jamaica, Florida) and it worked perfectly in 80 degree weather - kept me dry without getting too hot and I've also used it on several occasions over my softshell to keep out wind, snow & rain.

Looking at the specs, I was hoping that the Dragon would be like an MHW Alchemy on steroids (adding pitzips, hood + thumb loops) but I'm pretty disappointed. The Dragon doesn't have the fleece liner that the Alchemy jacket has, and it's just not quite warm enough to use unless it's above freezing.

I'm a huge believer in layering to retain & shed heat as needed. I use a Patagonia R1 as a base layer, with my old Alchemy jacket over it. That keeps me warm down to 0 degrees and if it's snowing hard I'll throw a MHW Typhoon coat over it all to keep me perfectly dry. I was hoping that the Dragon would replace my Alchemy in all conditions, but even with the R1 under the Dragon, it wasn't quite warm enough at around 20 degrees yesterday.
