This fits me spot on. Excellent warmth and packability. The best part is the hood. Even without the hood on when you zip up all the way it creates an extra barrier up to your face and more warmth stays in around your neck. If you are considering this or the non-hooded...Go Hood!

I am totally impressed with how warm it is. Especially considering how thin and light. With just a long sleeve shirt I was good down to 50 degrees & 10-15mph wind. Without the wind I wa good at 45 with just a brisk walk. If I could do anything different I'd get the zip up jacket instead. I missed having hand pockets to keep my hands out of the elements. But honestly I really love this thing. A great down alternative for sure.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 217 lbs
Size Purchased: L

I bought the L after having tried on an XL Down Sweater Jacket. The jacket in XL was way to roomy for me. The vest in Large ends up being a snug but usable fit in all but the length. Its simply to short. Seems there is a gap in between the XL and L. I have had similar problems with North Face sizing.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just used this for camping in the Sierras. Temps down in the 40's and I had to shed all my layers as I hot. I have always been a cold sleeper. Used a 25degree Kelty synthetic prior and this is way, way warmer. I bought the long version which is prefect for my 6'1" height. Much prefer this over my prev mummy bag for both warmth and space.
