I live in upstate NY where it can get pretty cold and windy. I needed a light pair of thermals to wear under my dress pants or scrubs for the ~10 min walk from my house to the hospital. I have a down coat that I wear for the winter but it's a jacket so my lower half freezes on the walk (i refuse to wear a parka). I used to wear the medium weight thermals I use for skiing which was fine for the cold but then I would become too warm indoors and have to go through the hassle of taking them off. These 1.0 thermals are the perfect solution. They are warm enough to make the walk outside bearable and yet comfortable and light enough for me to wear inside. They are also quick dry and odor resistance which is an added plus when I wear them all day.

Sizing details:
I'm 5'10.5", 145 lbs and I bought mediums.

What the other reviews have said is true. This jacket is super warm (comfortably walked around outside with a light wool sweater underneath in near 0 F weather), super light, and super compressible (I easily stuff it into my bookbag). This has quickly become my go to jacket for the cold upstate NY weather. I even sometimes throw it on in the morning as the house warms up.

A note about the style/sizing. I'm almost 5'11", 38" suit size, 31" pant inseam. Given those measurement I thought I'd be a small, but it was too small. I ended up buying a medium. Also this is a *jacket*; it ends a couple inches below your waist. This isn't like my other winter coat which covers my butt. This jacket covers about half my butt and ends at about the pockets of my pants in front. I'm guessing the fit is due to the fact that the jacket is made as an ultralight backpacking jacket (need range of motion in the legs).
