For reference, 5'1" 95lb, boyish build. I got the Venture in XS Black and it's my go-to jacket for running, hiking, errands, school, storms, trail restoration projects...anything, really. I don't use an umbrella anymore b/c the bill of the hood keeps my face dry. As expected, sleeves are a bit long and it's a little roomy but not unsightly! (Thanks to the shorter overall length. I look like I'm wearing a trash bag in other rain jackets.) I can wear a couple long sleeve shirts, my TNF fleece, and Apex Bionic under the Venture and still move around swimmingly.

For reference, 5'1" 95lb, boyish build. When this jacket first came out, I tried the XS and S, loved them both! The sleeves fit me perfectly, the chest did not poof, and the length was still in good proportion to my height. I would have opted for the S to leave room for a heavy sweater. Being a cheapo, however, I stalked this jacket for over a year and watched with disappointment as Marmot responded to buyers' comments to please lengthen the sleeves. (On the other hand, good on Marmot for being so responsive!) Hoping the sleeve adjustment wasn't too drastic, I finally ordered the Sassy in Granite and Black, size S. Unfortunately, the sleeves are much too long so I will return the jackets. I measured the sleeve (shoulder seam to end of sleeve)of the Small at 24.5".
