Looks like men's and women's versions may be the same, just that women's sizes aren't expansive as men's, but their color selection is much larger.

Damn. I wish those Parrot colored ones were available in size 45 (or that the Splash colored ones were available in the US!). Who is it that decided that men's shoes have to be so bland? I demand color!

I'm 6'4" tall and weigh 160lbs, with super-long arms. This jacket fits great! The arms are long enough in all positions, except for when I raise my arms above my head they ride up on my wrists a bit. It is not bulky in the body area, leaving only a little room for layering (if needed, as it is very warm as it is with just a couple of thin t-shirts underneath). I do wish it had a snugger fit, nipped in at the waist, but as it is it's not too bad, just kind of shapeless. I bought the gargoyle grey & orange version and it looks great, despite the orange zipper being a bit bright. The jacket is not very shiny at all and does not make much noise when moving.

All-in-all I am supremely satisfied with this jacket. It's very rare for me to ever find a jacket that fits my tall, thin, long-armed body well -- and this does it.

This is an excellent jacket for a cool summer night. For cold weather, however, it is worthless. Wind eats right through it. It could not handle a windy 55 degree F day.

On the plus side, it is incredibly soft and comfortable. The nightshade color is sharp looking with its orange highlights. I am 6'4"@165lbs with very long arms (6'8" wingspan) and the sleeves on this just hit my wrists on size LARGE. Acceptable, but I was hoping for longer sleeves, perhaps to tuck my hands into on occasion. I would prefer a couple inches slimmer in fit, but it is definitely not overly wide (36" chest/32" waist, have I).

I was really expecting this to be warmer, and was definitely expecting it to block the wind to some degree. Ultimately, I am disappointed and am returning it. However, I can see myself purchasing this come next spring to wear during warm spring/autumn days or cool summer nights.

I'm wondering what size to buy? I'm 6'4" tall, 165lbs, with super-long arms and legs (high waist). Large or Medium? On another store's review section someone with my measurements said Medium was perfect. I really don't care to have any significant layers underneath this, and will most likely wear this jacket alone (with only a bikini top underneath).

Please help me, I only have 12 more hours left until I buy this!
