Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 168 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I'm glad I bought a Large because any smaller would be too small in the chest/shoulders. I definitely have extra room in belly/waist area, but that's good for layers underneath, plus this jacket has cinch cord. Being 6'0" 180 lbs and buying this jacket in Medium is highly ill advised; you'll find your sleeves to be at least 2 inches too short and I presume space up top would be extremely restrictive. For what it's worth, I first tried out the Marmot Ajax Vest in Large, and with three layers on underneath(including a XL fleece) I was still swimming in that thing. This jacket is LIGHT and WARM; it gets 4 stars because I had to send my first Quasar back due to the waistband toggle being fed through the handle hole and not the actual locking mechanism - a ludicrous scenario @ MSRP $325, but I understand: Marmot had a Super Bowl commercial to worry about lol! BC was beyond stellar as usual.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Height: 5' 11"
Size Purchased: L

'Blue Night' isn't as dark as the pic @ top left; it's more of a mix with the lighter blue in the thumbnails below main photo.

I think the holes for your arms look small in the pics here, but they're not. It definitely permits a layer or two underneath and allows free movement of the arms.

I was about to contact BC about sizing issues, since I've been 185 lbs for about 15 years and have always worn a Large, but I just got on my scale and it read 161...I need to start eating again lol.
