I really like that parka but there is something werid about sizing... I had before Men's Medium size SubZero SL parka from Mountain Hardware and it was almost too big form me (I'm woman 5'8'' around 160lbs) The sleeves were perfect kind of tiny bit too long which I love a lot and I could still put fleece under if needed. Well... the new one... sleeves about and inch shorter and when I extend arm in fromt of me they are too short, and it's tight fit, just regular sweater and nothing more. I just gave it away to the lady that is 5'6'' and it fits her way better... I really can't imagine how it is men's size medium... Very small for men's Medium or they have some kind of manufacturing problem or labeling. Other than that it's very well made and very good quality. i would recommend it but take at least one size bigger than usually if not two.

I'm not professional climber, just sporty type but I always get really cold so finally I did my research and found this jacket for reasonable price for the warmth provided :)
It's great, first time in my life I don't have to put layers to feel warm :) and it's longer than regular jacket so my kidneys will feel warm too :)
I was afraid it might be too warm just to wear it on daily basis (I read all other reviews and I'm only at 5000 feet here in Colorado :)) but to my surprise I was fine even in 32 degree weather (as well as 9 degree:)) The only thing if you have to remove snow from your car in 32 degree weather then yes it's toasty -toasty but other than that it's fine.
I still have to try in on the slopes but I think it will be fine too- finally I won't freeze on the chairlifts :)(I don't think it will work during spring skiing though since there is no vents and that's the only minus of this parka)
I like the strap inside so I can change the puffy parka style to look more like jacket without loosing the length.
So for now I like it a lot. I'm 5'8'' and got men size M, but I do some rowing so my shoulders are a bit wider and my arms are long too so even though overall I think the jacket might be tiny bit too big but I love that sleeves are perfect length.
