Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I'm from NC and this jacket is all I need during the winter. I wear it almost daily and have had zero issues. From November to late March, it's perfect. Well made, warm, stays dry. I've never owned a jacket like this and was considering a ThermoBall or Kuhl but got this one last spring for $124.99. Could not pass up that deal. I did a lot of research (I was going to NOLS) and everything I read about Eider was positive. Was really the only jacket I used for two weeks in Wyoming (southern Wind Rivers) in July. As was suggested above, it is a European, athletic fit. I'm 6'0", 170 with a long torso and the large fits correctly. if you want a looser fit, size up. I will be getting more Eider gear in the future.

Did two hours (16+ miles) in them after "breaking them in" for a day....feet were fine. No blisters, no problems. The size thing is true, 1/2 size up. Even though the toe box is roomy, it wasn;t a problem and besides, you need a 1/2 inch for swelling. Did not feel the rocks like I did in my light weight Nike S+ (ok for pit/crushed gravel, not for anything heavier). They are a bit heavy but that's like asking for fat free nuts....it's not going to happen. You can't get superior protection in a lightweight shoe. Having accepted this, these shoes were great
