I'm a big fan of Haglofs, but sizing has been a huge issue for me. I'm generally a Medium/Large. In Haglofs, I'm generally a Large, sometimes an Extra-Large. In this jacket, an Extra-Large fits great. I'm 5'9, broad shouldered, 42" chest, 34-36" waist. I guess you can say I've got an athletic build. The Large fit ok but it didn't seem big enough for layering, so I ordered an XL just to see, and it fit perfectly. The quality is great, love the color and it seems like it'll be a great warm jacket that will packdown small. The frustrating thing is figuring out the sizing.
It's an expensive jacket but if you can get this jacket with one of STP coupons, do it!

Has great range of motion in the arms - doesn't pull up at the waist when you reach overhead. Slightly heavier type of fabric over the elbows and shoulders for reinforcement with more breathable stuff at pits. Great hood. The zipper is a left-hand-pull, which feels a bit weird. The photo on STP looks purple, but the color is actually more blue than purple. The value is awesome - was reviewed in complete by a UK-based climbing guy who said it was worth the money he paid at over 200 pounds.
