Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

Big fan of Norrona and usually fit into a Large (6'4", 210 lbs) due to their longer sleeve length and body length. That said with this vest (slim fit) I am returning the large as it was just too tight. XL should fit just fine. Product is just what I am looking for as an extra layer for winter runs and under a shell while Tele Skiing.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just received my commute jacket in XL. I am 6'4" 210 and it fits perfectly. Long in arms and torso not to short. High quality and high finish as in all icebreaker. It's dressy enough to wear a collared shirt and trousers to the office if needed. I only wish it had a small chest pocket as that seems best for the I phone. Well done icebreaker and thanks for the generous discount!

Wanted so badly for these to work but they don't fit my body. I'm 6'-4, 210 and the XL cut is just not right and they were a bit short. I would agree with some of the previous reviews that the BC pant is not as stretchy as the description might indicate. I have the FlyLow "stash"pant in an XL and love them from both a fit and performance standpoint. Seems the stash has a longer drop and a longer inseam which is ideal for my tele-fun.

I now have two (2) of these and they are becoming my favorite casual T shirt. I prefer the 150 weight particularly during the summer as the 200 weight is a bit heavy for me. Sweat all you want and it won't get musky. Wash cold and hang to dry. I am 6'4" 208 lbs and the large fits just fine for casual wear. My only wish is that Backcountry/Icebreaker had a few more colors available in Large.

I just recieved and skied in my new "Chapter" this weekend at Mary Jane after having returned my Seam and thought the price would not indicate I personally believe the Chapter is an upgrade. The venting design, especially the front, in the Chapter may work more efficiently as I was constantly too warm in the Seam. I will potentially add the final star as I get more days/experience with the Chapter. Enjoy.

Great design, high quality, great detail... have been using for spring skiing as well some recent chilly early morning bike rides and the warmth, breathability and wind resistence is right on. It's a very snug fit. I'm 6'4" 210 and had to go with an XXL. XL would have been good for cycling but I wanted to be able to layer a vest for skiing. My only complaint is that it does absorb perspiration and stinks if I sweat in it.
