Fit vs. '09 Stoic 2.0 version

Can anyone tell me for certain if this version is cut/fits roomier than the '09 Stoic 2.0 version (the last version before they created the separate Stoic brand)? I've been trying to get a straight answer to this to no avail - some of the comments here clearly suggest that it is roomier, but I chatted with a BC agent who told me that it is cut/fits exactly the same.

I currently have the '09 Stoic 2.0 in a large, and while it fits perfectly with a thin midlayer, anything more than 100g fleece and it's too tight around the shoulders and arm pits, so I'm debating between getting this version in the same size L or going up to the XL so that I can layer more underneath and use the jacket during the winter. I'm 6'0, 175lbs with an athletic moderately muscular build (31 waist, 42-43 chest) and usually wear a M in Patagonia and Arc'Teryx and L or XL in Mountain Hardwear depending on the cut. Thanks.

5 5

Spent the last month searching out and trying every other lightweight down vest (high fill power/low-medium fill weight/under 10oz) because I wanted to try a brand other than Patagucci. I ended up with this one anyway because it fits better, is made better and just feels better than every other one I tried. Add to that the eco sensitive construction and ironclad warranty and it really is the bomb.

Also, for anyone looking to compare fill weight (as opposed to fill power), the fill weight according to Patagonia customer service is 57 grams/2.01 oz.
