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

They should get some kind of award or something. I have been skiing since I was a child and despite being lean (read skinny) have always skied with light layers due to heat issues. This material maintains a comfortable environment inside. I wouldn't call it warm, nor would I call it cold. I just lets out the excessive heat during high activity exceptionally well.

Polartec Neoshell performs like this but in my view is too air permeable, it lets in too much wind when your speed increases during skiing, and depending on the outside temp this can get cold. It is also still relatively expensive. Perfect for high aerobic activities that do not involve MPH. I have not noticed this Intuitive laminate/membrane do that at all. It blocks the high speed/pressure wind during downhill sessions, but allows my core temp to fluctuate with exertion never leaving me clammy, hot, or cold. I'm 6'0, 180, short torso, long arm'd and legged and either the L or XL fit just fine. They don't seem too far apart in size, or maybe I'm just in the middle of the sizes. I opted for the XL to accommodate thicker layers.

This little Colorado company is offering so much bang for the buck. The construction and materials seem top shelf and it has not left me wanting for more or different pockets and zippers.
