    I am 6'1 210 pounds and I ordered a XL. This is an athletic fit jacket, and so the XL fits great while allowing for layering. A base layer and an Icebreaker hoodie under the Speedstar kept me warm on my recent summit of Mt. Bross in Colorado. The temperatures ranged from 5-15F, but when the winds really kicked up I and things got cold at 14,000ft I did need to add a hardshell. The jacket was warm enough by itself below treeline. The stretchy material allows for a full range of motion in the shoulders and does not make any 'swishing' noises. The insulation is comfortable on bare skin, the jacket breathes very well especially if you use the pit vents, plus is surprisingly compressible. The hood is the best hood I've ever used, it's large enough to fit over a helmet while being easily adjustable for normal wear. The small touches really shine on this jacket, suck as the harness loops to keep the jacket from riding up, or how the sun visor on the hood conveniently flips up and out of the way when not required.

    There are no hand pockets (not useful when wearing a harness or backpack) or inside pockets. This jacket is not ideal for wearing around town for that reason, although the chest pockets will fit a cell phone, car keys, and a wallet just fine.The insulation means that the jacket will not be useful over as wide a temperature range as a non-insulated jacket. Expensive.

    This is a jacket that you will use a lot! I was surprised at the warmth this jacket provides along with the temperature range in which it is comfortable. It is an alpine climbing piece, but usable for most outdoor activities. I am 6' 4", 205 # and the XL fits nicely. No room for a mid layer for me. THE only drawback, as previously mentioned, is the lack of hand pockets. The newest version has both pit zips and hand pockets, but the price is very high. It does come in XXL, too. The Lodestar jacket on STP has pockets, but no pit zips. I chose the Speedstar for the pit zips, because I usually use this jacket for skiing/hiking with a small pack and need pit zips more than pockets.

    The jacket could be a little longer, but I do have a very long torso so I have become accustomed to this. The warmth is great, and the slim fit is perfect. The hood feels oversized, but I guess it would work well with a helmet if that is what it is being used for.

    Perfect for an ice climber, which I am not. Well made, good looking, just not for every sport. Tailored in the stomach area with no hand pockets. Don't get me wrong. OR is stellar. Just not what I was looking for.

    Synthetic jackets seem to be the rage this year so I bought this to replace my 15 year old 300 weight fleece "under layer." This is about the same warmth (fine at 20 degrees with a thin wool sweater or long undershirt (poly). The trim fit should be good for ice-climbing--and it's less slippery than my gore-tex jacket. Nice to have pit zips! Will try it ice-climbing in a few weeks--carrying down as over-layer when finished.
