Overall I love this coat. The cut is a little weird, it is tight in the shoulder area/armpits like they should have made the arms connect to the jacket farther down the sides and the wrist closure is a little tight, but there is a good bit of room in the waist. I am 5'9" 145lb with 34B chest and the medium fits fine, other than those two things. I tried on a large, thinking it would feel better through the shoulders and it it just looked really frumpy in the belly area. So I think it's just the cut and it's not so bad as to make me want to return it, I can still layer a warm 3/4 zip and t-shirt under it no problem. It stuffs into the right pocket, which is great for climbing, just clip it on your harness and go! The green color looks a little like toothpaste online but it is really nice in person, more green than turquoise.

I bought this bag for a 3 week summer camping trip in the mountains and was very happy with the warmth and weight. I'm 5'9" and 145lbs and I got the long because it was what was in stock and it is HUGE. It packs small but I can stand up in it with my hands inside the hood and arms stretched straight over my head and not pull it tight. It's also wide enough to let me pull my knees to my chest inside the bad. So, if you're on the bigger side this is the bag for you. Not sure why there's a pocket at the feet, but it could be useful and it's large. The only thing I would change is add loops to the bottom for hanging storage.

I just got finished using this to backpack in the alps for 3 weeks and overall this bag is really great. It is highly adjustable, holds a lot, and the set-up of the many pockets make it easy to organize your gear without compromising your ability to carry bulky items. A few small concerns: the side water-bottle pockets are made of an elastic material that I'm not sure will wear well, there is no pocket on the hip belt for snacks, camera, whatever, and I agree with the previous review that the frame can make some weird squeaky noises depending on how you have it loaded and how the straps are tightened. Also, the frame is insane, it seems like it would be enough for a MUCH larger pack. That lets you carry some pretty serious weight comfortably with this pack, though, and the only down-side is it's a little on the heavy side. Overall, a GREAT buy. It comes with a rain cover that stores in it's own little pocket in the bottom of the pack too, which makes it easy to access while on the trail.
