Thicker and more comfortable than expected.

I am 6'6" and 215 lbs. and the XL fit me OK. The waist was a little short but the sleeves were actually almost long enough for me. I had to stretch the sleeves out a little bit, but not as much as the body. There are some things that I'd like to point out about this product:

-Thumb holes. These are actually very useful in keeping my hands warm, especially as a layering piece.
-Chest zipper. This played a sizable part in my decision to purchase.
-Zip neck. Can adjust to compensate for different temperatures.
-Thick material. This stuff is thicker than the Icebreaker 260. The merino wool to cost ratio is extremely good here.
-Fleece-like inner. It's 100% merino wool, but it feels like soft fleece on the inside.
-No draw cord hem. This isn't a huge deal for me since it isn't windproof and I'd probably wear this as a layer anyway. In other words, if I had other layers and bibs over this, I doubt a draw cord hem would make much of a difference from preventing body heat to escape. Despite that being said, it still is a very good choice to wear in public/at school.

Overall, I'm surprised this is still in stock. If you don't know about merino wool, I feel bad for you. And yes, it is worth it. The only thing that would have made this perfect would be if the body was a little longer. Luckily, I could stretch it out so now it fits fine.
