I am 158cm, 5,2" and weigh 52kg, 115lbs, I bought the size S jacket after using the fitting guide. After the purchase I went to a store and tried on the Teta shell jacket and the S size there was much too big for me and the XS would have been better. I could probably go down one size, but I rather have that extra air to keep me extra warm. The fitting is not very streamlined, but I really don't care about that when wearing this kind of gear. The hood fits perfect and keeps wind out with no problem, so it definitly puts and end to the cold air on the back problem. There are two big net pockets on the inside, keeps lots of things and with the size S I could fit a bigger compact camera in there without problem. I were mine both for outdoorskiing and walking and just when the weather is crappy. This is my first Goretex proshell jacket and I must say, it was worth all the money. I bought the black one, because I don't want to wash it at all if I can manage, since it will not wear down on the quality, if it smells I just put it outside for a night. I used the chat function when I bought it, because I wanted a jacket that covered my waist line and wanted it also to cover my hips and part of my bum. They said that it would , but I feel more that it ends past just or a little bit below the hip. It is really lightweight, easy to move in. I love it and this loveaffair will last a life time. I took one star away, because I just find it annoying that you pay pretty much for a premium jacket and when you look at the label it says "Made in China", it is just irritating.

These are just awesome, I tend to freeze a lot and these were wonderful. They fit really perfect, perfect to wear under another pair giving you that extra airspace and the wool i superb with the thinsulate extra thing in them, remember wool detergent. They are not to be worn alone, but underneath another pair. Used them while away skiing and they were perfect for cold weather.

Just came back from skiing, worn both socks, I am size 6,5 or 37 for Europe, bought the S/M size. The socks are too long, it is not comfortable at all to have them above the knee, easy to get blisters at the back of the knee on the other side they stay up so you can easy put them more of them just above were your boot ends. I am 158cm(5,2"?). They stay put all day and that is really nice. I have had some problem with pressure injuries, but these ones were really comfy, with no prints or anything to make the surface uneven. They are not superwarm and were to cold for me skiing, then I am also one of them that freezes alot. They stay pretty dry, don't smell even after several days wear. Overall good sock for good price, but could be shorter and a little warmer.
