Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: Extra Large

I'm 6'5" 195lb and I have the XL. It's a nice slim fitting XL with long enough arms for me.

I use this jacket as part of my backcountry skiing layering system. This jacket is my outer layer (over a single baselayer) for the uphill. It stops wind and snow but still breaths really well so I don't get soaked with sweat. When I'm stopped or skiing down I put a hardshell or down jacket or both on over the softshell and it becomes my midlayer. Reviewers who are complaining about this jacket being too slim fitting to fit layers underneath are misunderstanding the purpose of the jacket. This jacket is best worn directly over your baselayer in a situation where you are moving and sweating but you don't want the wind to cut straight through your baselayer to your skin. The slim fit and stretch makes it easy to move and easy to wear the jacket under a big down belay parka or under your hardshell when the weather gets really nasty and you're at a belay or ski transition.

The mechanical design of these bindings has hardly changed in the last thirty years and they're still the best balance of retention when you're skiing and release when you need it.

Buy this sweet throwback color scheme and ski like it's 1992.

Pro tip: you probably don't need to crank up the release value like you might on other bindings, the beauty of the Look Pivot design is that they can be run at lower values without pre-release.
