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!
