I wanted to love these shorts. Nice colours and patterns with a 4 way stretch quick dry fabric, but the fit is just weird. I usually wear a 32 in all my board shorts. These fit well in the waist but somehow the keep sliding down my but no matter what i do (even if there is nothing in the pocket or even wet). I don't know what it is, perhaps the patterning or the cut.
I wish i could give it a better review.
Ill stick my O'Neil and Oakley board shorts for now

Yep these have some crazy big pockets. I can stuff a chihuahua in each pocket and still have room for my phone, wallet and a few other nick knacks.
Tough fabric with no stretch and a bit of a rough feel. nice built in belt and buckle. average fit with a at the knee length. Decent pair of shorts, probably a lot better products in the $65 range.
If you need a pair of shorts with tons of carrying capacity these may be for you

Great fitting short, love the length (just below the knee). Has a nice feel to the fabric and it breathes relatively well. The fabric seems to change color in different lighting. I bought Heron and it is a dark grey with subtle blue contrast stitching. In the bright sun the shorts looked much lighter and the blue contrast really was visible (nice touch).
Gripes. The fabric looks stained after a few hours of use. After doing some casual running followed by a visit to the park. The shorts had marks all over. Gatorade left marks on the fabirc as well as light dirt from sitting down.
front pockets need to be an inch or 2 deeper (cant hold much). and the side stash pocket could be a touch bigger to fit an iPhone.
Lastly the fly closure (same as most of my boardshorts). while not a deal breaker i would still prefer a zippered fly

My Medium Atom SV has a front zipper that measures a hair over 27.5" long. my hyllus in medium measures just over 26.5" long. Some of the extra length on the ATOM is the higher collar. The Atom will come a little bit lower in the front if I put them over top of each other (crazy warm combo that is totally not necessary). I find the ATOM SV is more versatile than my hyllus. Sadly the ATOM SV is being replaced by the ATOM AR this fall

There are a few versions of the epsilon to compare (SV,AR, and now LT). The epsilon series are bonded fleece jackets (hardfleece) rather than softshells. however I own 2 epsilon SV jackets and they are perfect for insulation and as a stand alone outer layer in the mid temps. They do let a bit of wind in though since they do not have a membrane.
I also own a hyllus but find I do not use it as much as some of my other gear. It is just too warm most of the time. I take it out mostly in the fall and early spring otherwise it sits in my closet the other times. Neither has much stretch to the fabric which I prefer for dynamic activities (such as climbing). For those I prefer the Gamma MX. A perfect mix of stretch, insulation, weather resistance and breathability.

Bought these pants a few seasons back and for some reason didn't like them (so I sold them). I saw a great deal on this years version and I LOVE them. Not sure what changed (me or the pants). Great fit and stretchy fabric. Cuts wind and breathes rather well. I used them a lot in the late winter and early spring. Pocket placement is excellent (love the side cargo pocket!). I ended up replacing my arcteryx gamma LT with these pants (although these are a much heavier fabric) I just found them more useful than the gamma LT pants.

Kirill
The Alpha SL and FL are much more trim fitting jackets. I usually wear a size up compared to my SV jackets.
If you have a broad chest and long arms you may want to look to the large, but judging from your height and weight I would agree with Robert above in that the medium Alpha SV should fit you well.

Don't get me wrong, these are a nice pair of pants. Fantastic fit, stretchy fabric, clean finish but $120! Egad.......
These are my go to pants around town or coming and going to the climbing gym. the move well with the body and are incredibly comfy. They have held up well against multiple washings and I always hang to dry (I was warned they shrink in the dryer). 1 small gripe- the outside pocket should have the zipper open the opposite way (so the fastener sits closed by your thigh). just looks cleaner....
Great pants though if you want to shell out $120

Fit: Runs small

I love the narrower cut of the Beta LT jacket. I am 5'10" and 165lbs with monkey long arms. I fit a medium perfectly (for reference I wear a medium Alpha SL and a small Theta AR. front zipper is 28" long so it just comes down over you pants/shorts and has a drop of 3-4" in the rear.
The chest is 2-3" narrower in the torso than the alpha SL and shoulders are a tad narrower. The arms however are plenty long (bonus). 2 large chest pockets can fit nearly all i need for day excursion and an inside chest pocket is perfect for my phone or wallet.
The new pro shell breathes relatively well but it still needs some pit zips on muggy rainy days.
Great jacket - love the way it fits but looses 1 star for lack of pit zips
