Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I'm a bit over 6'5" and 210lbs. The Large / Long fits just right so I don't have slack on the bottom of my pants hitting the ground. Without shoes on, the bottom back edge of the pants by my heel are about 1/2" from the ground. The full cut is nice and roomy without being baggy/sloppy. I dig 'em.

I'm a bit over 6'5" and 210lbs and this shirt in large fits damn nice. Nearly the slim fit of a tailored shirt. The sleeves come down to my wrist which for a large is pretty uncommon. If you have a beer gut, maybe get the XL. Gonna order another once this is back on S&C!

I'm 6'5" and 210lbs w/ broad shoulders and the Large fits well and the length is just right... not too long, not short. I think with this fit, the XL would be on the loose/baggy side if that's what you're after. The large for me works for wearing a day pack without extra fabric bunching up. Should be good for both casual and active wear.

I have a large noggin... 7 5/8 if I recall correctly but the XXXL is what my head fit best. The XXL was just a bit too tight on my head. I like the depth of these. It doesn't look like a mushroom cap on my head. It came with a visor on the padded headband. I know I could order a headband without the visor but instead used a knife to start the removal of the row of stitches holding the visor on. A good solid pull took it the rest of the way off. The removal didn't damage the headband.

Fit: Runs small

I'm 6'5" 208lbs with broad shoulders and the XL is too short. The rest of it fits good. Didn't want to go XXL as those are usually too wide. Returning it as I don't want to ride in a belly shirt.

I'm 6'5" 208 with broad shoulders and this shirt in an XL fits pretty well minus the chest being a little loose. May have a few darts thrown in the back to slim the fit cause it's a cool shirt. Else, the sleeves are decent length for my arms. I think the sleeves on the L would be too short for me. There's an inch difference betwen the sleeves on the L and XL.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I'm 6'5", 210lbs with broad shoulders and the XL fits great.

I ordered the XL based on another OR jacket I own. I own an OR Paladin Jacket and I ordered the large but it was too snug in the armpits(with just a single layer under it) and the sleeves were about 1" too short. Not very comfortable. I exchanged it for the XL and the fit is great. Closer to a slim fit vs baggy and I have room for a few layers without restriction and the arms are 1" longer than the XL(verified with Outdoor Reserach customer service). Looking forward to putting some miles on this jacket.

Hope this sheds light for another person.

I'm 6'5" and 206lbs and the large fits perfect. The arm length comes down to my wrist and the length of the shirt comes down further in back then the front which is nice since you don't need the extra fabric in the front. Being 6'5" and finding a shirt with good arm and torso length that you don't swim in is a rarity. Good stuff, Stoic!

I'm 6'5" tall and 205lbs and this shirt in Large fits well. It's snug but not tight so not alot of extra fabric to bunch when I layer it which is nice. It's light enough that I can wear it under a cycling jersey when I ride if I need just a touch more insulation on a cool ride. Great shirt for warm day activities. Dries quickly. Good stuff.

I have Morton's Neuroma which is easily agitated by narrow footwear since I have wide feet. I hiked for the last four days in my Oregon PCTs with a custom 1/2 length arch insert and no additional padding(four hours of that with a 64lb pack). Not once did I get that burning forefoot sensation which I had with some more narrow boots. My feet stayed dry and warm. Amped I found a hiking boot which will let me hike pain free. Looking forward to putting more miles on them.

I'm 6'5" and 210lb with a 36in waist - I just needed to take the belt strap in 1" total so not much bunched up fabric on the waist(you can work that slack around the side/back a bit so there is no bunched fabric). Nice secure buckle on the belt. Good length (mid-kneecap) but the fabric doesn't seem like it will be very durable on the trail/rocks. I have larger thighs and high stepping in these shorts doesn't tighten up the crotch like other shorts due to the stretchy material/gusseted crotch, which is nice. Both cargo pockets are zip only which I don't dig on - velcro is nice for quick access to a camera, gear, or whatever. As some have mentioned in the reviews, these may work better for going to the cafe, golfing or looking stylish on a yacht vs being functional on the trail. * shrug * Think I'll return them and get another pair of Kuhl Z Cargo shorts.

Seems like it will take a beating, but soft/pliable and won't chafe. Looking forward to getting out in these. I have larger thighs and high stepping in these shorts doesn't tighten up the crotch like other shorts - woot. Velcro on three different sized cargo pockets is nice for quick access. Think I'll get another pair eventually.

I'm 6'5" and 210lb - I have a 36in waist which the XL fit well, but just below the waist and down is too tight. Hugs my thighs and any movement tightens them up even more. These would work well for someone with thinner legs. The XXL would work for my thighs but would be way too loose on the waist. Sweet shorts but not going to work for my build.The XL KUHL Z Cargo Short however are a perfect fit for me. nice room in the thighs and I just needed to take in 1" on the waist with the built-in belt straps.

I'm 6'5"/225lb and finding a pack that fits well is a challenge. This pack fits my torso great. First hike was eleven miles and it did great to put the weight on my hips. My son enjoyed the hike and the rain/sun cover did it's job as it rained part of our trip and he stayed dry. Cargo area and pockets hold enough for a comfortable day out. Kick stand is great. Also room for your hydration bladder. Good stuff.
