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

I normally wear a small in tank tops (135, 5'8") but have found I need to size down for horny toad. It's a bit more fitted than it would look from the picture of the model. Thin material in the bust (might show even if you're not that cold!) but I use bathing suit inserts in a bunch of exercise tops that solves it nicely. Otherwise super cute!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

This is the softest merino product I own and it looks great. Warm, dresses up for the office over slacks but equally comfortable over leggings to head to the bar apres ski. Flattering cut is tight at the hips but dolman sleeves are flattering for my climbing shoulders. 5'8 and 130 lbs and the small was perfect

In the continuing quest to find gear that has a tailored fit, rain jackets seem the last hold-out. This is a great jacket in that it has a sleek cut but is still totally waterproof. It's a shell, but the hood and neck are lined for soft comfort, and there's room to fit a mid-layer underneath when taking it to the backcountry. I'm 5'8" and 130lbs, the small fit great.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket is superb - great fit and true to Mammut form, a great outdoor product. The fit is slim, and like the other reviewers stated, is perfect for long torsos and arms (though with the cut, shorter torsos would fit well into it too, it was borrowed by my friend, about 6 inches shorter than me, and still looked great). I've replaced a much heavier fleece with this thinner one as a mid-layer and it stands the test - yesterday took it out under a shell for a full day of ice climbing at temperatures just above freezing. My core stayed warm (toes were another matter!). Would have needed a puffy on belay if it had gotten much colder, but stood the test for that climate!

I wear this around town too, because I love the color (looks great in alpine pictures) and fit.

This jacket is a great product - the fabric at the elbows and side body means it's easy to bend and reach overhead without it creeping up your belly. That does mean those spots get a little colder- when the wind was blowing I could feel it on my arms. It's not a puffy for putting on for a shell, it's a warmer better tailored replacement for a heavy fleece.
I'm 5'8, 130lbs, and usually take a small, the small fit well and was long enough for my torso and arms. Keeper!
