Just wore this jacket on a snowboarding trip and it was quite warm and comfortable. I am tall and thin (5'9", 120#) and ordered the 8 in order to layer underneath (my regular shirt size is 6). The look is not form-fitting, but not too bulky either. The sleeves are long and the wrist gaiters offer extra coverage and warmth and are long enough not to pull tightly under gloves. The hood is detachable, but not quite large enough to fit over a helmet. The material around the pit zips is a little bulky but I only noticed it when standing still with my arms at my sides. While skiing or riding, I did not notice them at all. The powder skirt is a little loose and didn't prevent snow from coming in. Jacket has good pockets and zippers, but one of the snaps on the powder skirt broke off immediately. Otherwise well made. Light blue has a grey-ish cast, so not too baby-bluish.
