M fit great. Enough for layering but not baggy around the midsection if you don't need to layer. I tried TNF's denali and it was too much material. This jacket is definitely slimmer than the denali plus it's windproof. It is very breathable; felt it from the moment i put it on. A size small would have been a bit tight, but if you want to use this as a baselayer then size down.

-update- I ordered a small and it fits great. Not too baggy anywhere! I may have gotten away with a Medium but I don't think I would have liked the fit as much. Plus I still got room to layer so I am satisfied with a Small. The jacket looks awesome, but the pockets are not exactly that functional. However, the jacket is warm and looks good. I like how the cuffs and the hem keep out the wind and cold air. Definitely keeping this one. And I didn't really care for the faux fur, I just unzipped that part. But those are my first impressions. My measurements are 39" chest, 34" arm length. This jacket's hem hits at the waist.

This jacket is better than I expected. People are saying, "It's not windproof." Ladies and Gentlemen TNF never claimed this jacket to be windproof or waterproof! It is, however, a great jacket for calm weather and a great mid-layer when the temperature drops. I use this jacket as a mid-layer with my TNF shell.

As for the claims that this jacket is baggy; it has a hem chord to solve that. It works perfectly.

I am 5'10 weighing 138 lbs; athletic build. My arms are 34 in. A medium fits perfectly for me. There is room to layer more but not too baggy if I just want to use a shirt. It was baggy around the hem but again... use the hem chord!

I got this jacket from a different site for about $50 less. That being said, it is a good jacket. Shell is quite nice, and the fleece is adequate. Mainly, I don't quite like the fleece too much, so I decided to get a Denali to zip into it (yes, it works.). The fleece that this jacket comes with doesn't have an adjustable hem chord.. I don't know why they didn't put it in but oh well. I can still use it for layering with my other gear. So, I like the shell a lot. Not too enthused by the fleece. Overall, the jacket is quite windproof, waterproof, and warm.
