I am 5'4" 130 lbs and I found the M too tight so I ordered the L and found it much more comfortable. I normally take a M in everything so this was quite a surprise for me. Either size fits, I just prefer a little more room and the M was tight on the legs. Comfortable and breaths OK, but it is not earth shattering and you still sweat and it still gets damp. I think they are as sexy as they are functional which is nice. Haven't tried handwashing them and drying but it looks like it'd be fine to dry overnight.

Just wore this today for a hike in Pacific NW in 60 degree weather. Kept me warm in the shade and cool enough in the sun as needed. The thumb holes/long sleeves were perfect and avoided the need for gloves. Love the bright color which could be seen on the trail easily. What I don't like is the zippered pocket which is on the waist. WHY? If you tuck your shirt in, it will rub against the pants waist and is uncomfortable. It is a stupid place for a pocket IMHO and necessitates you wear it outside of your pants. Sometimes I will, sometimes I don't want to. Won't buy more with that pocket, but will buy more of this product w/o the pocket flaw. The pocket is big enough to fit an Iphone4, but it seems something that heavy might stretch this lightweight material. Love everything but the pocket so it gets s 4 for that stupid pocket.

Got a M and a L. I am 5'4" and 130 lbs and am not a zero BMI, but average range. I did not care for the tapered fit around the waist/belly. I prefer a looser fit around that section. And they have a pocket right there that doesnt make much sense to me for that purpose of garment. I have average - not long arms and I found the sleeve lengths in both sizes acceptable and the thumb holes OK, but they did seem to twist the sleeves a little weird that gave me pause. Not a deal breaker. The deal breaker was that I just didn't really like the snug fit accentuating my roll of a belly which is not that big, but wasn't a flattering fit. Rest of the fit is OK so why did they have to do that around the mid section? Not sure if it is warm, but sure does seem too light to do much. I will definitely return the M and maybe return the L. I prefer Icebreaker M fit and finish. I do like the Stoic colors.

Ordered 1/2 size up normal 1/2 size up for hiking books so I could have heavy socks and was perfect. Wide enough for my wide toes and narrow enough for my narrow heel. Super comfortable. Very good looking. Great traction. Was worried top was lower than some, but provides good ankle support. I really love these boots. Waterproofing tested some in snow mostly and excellent, but haven't put it to the Seattle test! Warm enough for snowshoeing in CO. Would buy again.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Breaths very well and is the perfect jacket for cold weather active events. Not very warm if you aren't generating a lot of heat, but does provide moderate warmth and great wind protection. Best if you are working up a sweat so I would not wear this to walk my dogs who stop and sniff every 2 feet! ;-) Size is right on and does not have over long sleeves. I am 5'4" 130 lbs and a M was perfect and snug enough to be shapely. Blue ice/cobalt color is great! Packable. I'd definitely buy it again.
