I'm 5'9", 165 and the small was ideal for me. The jacket does seem to run big, as it demands layers. I loved the zipper to the side of the face, just a small detail, but great functionality. The hood is rather large. If you don't plan on wearing a helmet at any point in your use of this item you may look into other Gore jackets, because the hood is large. For the price you want to make sure its going to be well used. Its not a problem if you cinch down the cords on the hood real tight. Otherwise you'll feel like a parasailer when the wind catches you. Impressive design, Arcteryx didn't forget what the use of this jacket was. It could use a larger interior pocket for a pair of skins.

The Hedgehog GTX XCR is a great, versatile-use shoe. They are comfortable enough I wore them on a dirt road leg of the Wasatch Back Relay, but are hiking shoe enough I can take them on rough trails with a light pack on. I have not always been a huge fan of waterproof/breathable materials(Gore-Tex, eVent) in my shoes, but it is incredible in the Hedgehog. The Gore makes these shoes great for running on early morning wet grass. I put a pair of PolySorb insoles from Spenco and I don't take these shoes off very often, ask my wife. Highly recommended for a general purpose shoe.
