Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm 5'7", 130lb or so. The Long was perfect for me. The material feels great, soft and quiet. Most other details are what I expect from Marmot. I decided to try the Ouray because I needed a 0-deg bag, and I like Marmot product. Lots of good things as others mentioned, and I'm sure it would have been great, but for a couple things that didn't do it for me.
First, the fill on the bottom did not fill as much as floor models I saw prior to buying this bag. I fluffed and fluffed as much as possible; let the bag hang for over a week; fluffed some more; but the bottom fill never fully filled the baffles. I could see light coming through many spots. Perhaps I got a bag that didn't get filled properly.
Second, I don't like the way the foot box is designed into the bag. It's a bit hard to describe. The bigger space/more fill is good, but getting my feet into the bag is not as smooth as I'd expect. The zipper stops perhaps 12" or more from the bottom of the bag. And it's here where where the trapezoidal foot box begins to take shape. But rather than the bag smoothing down from the body to the foot box, there are these actual stopping points you can feel. If you mis-direct your foot on entry (lights on or off), you could jam your toe into this stopping point. I don't mind getting used to new features on gear, but re-training myself on how to get into my sleeping bag isn't really one of them. I camp a lot; so it's not like I can just "live with it" for the few times I camp.
And the zipper not going down even to within 6" of the bottom of the bag won't let you open the bottom of the zipper a bit to let in a bit of cool air if your feet overheat.
So except for the low fill on the bottom of the bag and oddities of the foot box, this bag would have been great for me. Giving it 3 for these two issues.

My guy is a lean man, about 5' 8" and smaller stature than most (in a woman's world, we'd call it small-boned). Generally, Small shirts might fit him in the torso, but the sleeves are BARELY too short (as in just short enough to be annoying); and the width across the upper back pulls a tad too much. But Medium shirts are too big, too roomy, and look like he doesn't know how to shop for himself. How does this shirt run - true, smallish or larger? I know it's not a fitted shirt, but can you perhaps tell me the sleeve length of the Small and the Medium? And maybe any other measurements that will help me decide?
