Color

Just to help show the "diablo" color; the strap in this pic (which is not part of the jacket) is hunter orange and black. Overall the jacket color was just too bright for my liking, and had to return. Other features are pretty sweet and as expected from a OR jacket (watch the video). Im 6' 175# and the M was a bit on the loose side but not bad.

This fleece jacket is a slim athletic fit, and a bit different then most US fits/styles. Im 6 ft 165# usually get a M in brands such as TNF, Patagucci, OR, but based on other reviews I got a Large. I probably could have gone XL. I like the contoured fit of the large but not much room for more than a t-shirt or base layer. The pit areas ride a bit high and do not have extra fabric so at times the sleeves ride up a little when really reaching out. I use this as a around town and campus as a casual hoody. It does not block 100% wind but a light breeze will go unnoticed. The lowest temp I used this in was 20F and was still plenty warm. I got this on SAC and would not have payed full retail price. Oh, and yes european zippers, nice furry soft inside that gets a little static; still I kept the jacket.

Eliminates the need to reposition skin to trim the other edge. Not sure how others have had problems. Make sure to trim from tip to tail or you will be fighting the entire cut. Used this tool for my first time cutting my own skins. Worked great on the BD Ascension STS. Well worth the $4.
P.S. G3 also has a great Twin tip Connector Kit that is compatible with the BD STS skin.

Im 6' 170 lbs. Got a M & L on SAC. I wear both sizes, depends on my mood / activity but find myself going for the M more often because is seems to perform better when a little closer to the skin. Guess it just depends how you want your shirt to fit but keep in mind the material is stretchy. I would also highly recommend the Stoic Merino 150 crew but i found the L in the Merino fits like a M Breath 90 shirt.
