Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am 5'11" 175lbs and I ordered a Large in Burnt/Red Rock. Sizing is good, enough room underneath for layers without being too bulky. Color is great, nice sharp Orange.

Wore this jacket in 15-30 degree weather with a light down jacket underneath. Snowmelt beaded up nicely and the jacket was dry. Breathability was a bit of an issue. After taking off the jacket, the down underneath was moist on the outside (in between the down and this shell).
Wish I would have looked a little closer at the design. One side zipper makes it a bit difficult on/off. A zipper on the other side would have been nice. The front pocket is not that convenient either.
For my purposes (looking good and keeping wet out) this jacket works great. I don't think I would recommend it for high aerobic activities though..

I'm 6 foot 175lbs with a long torso, and the large that I ordered is perfect size. Plenty of room underneath to wear a few layers, but doesn't wear like a potato sack. I haven't worn this one skiing yet, but it has performed well in the subzero temperatures of rural Alaska while wearing a few good layers. On the coldest days, UnderArmour + Marmot LightWeight Layer + Heavier Wool Sweater + this shell has taken me on extended journeys into the frozen tundra. It has done well during the spring thaw as well (drop a couple layers and it has performed well at 50 degrees). My only complaint is that the harsh north wind actually tends to go through this jacket a bit (GoreTex Performance vs Pro), and I'm worried that the PowderSkirt won't be the best on the hill. Great Jacket For a Great Price on BackCountry though!
