Like other mtn hardwear stuff this year, fit is on large size. Sleeves and hem are pretty long, and lots of room for a big belly. I'm 6'1" 165 lbs and a large was too big. I didn't try a medium but medium tops are usually too small around armpits. This jacket is burly with a full liner, not a mesh liner.
I do not recommend this product.

Just what you want in a raincoat: thick waterproof fabric that is soft and breathable enough to be comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

I replaced my original Exposure jacket (had it for years....) and it was my favorite jacket. The only thing that the new version was "missing" was the powder skirt. This skirt helped keep the "drafts" under control. This is the reason for my "4 bars" and not "5 bars."
As to the jacket, I normally wear a size "Large" jacket and the "Large" did fit. However, there wasn't enough room to wear a warmth (i.e. down vest) layer comfortably. So, I got the "XL" size and it fits pretty well even with a down vest under it. The ELITE fabric works better then the "old" Gore-Tex (my original Exposure Parka). It doesn't get clammy when exerting on a hill climb and I don't overheat (like I did in my original Exposure parka). Aside from my quibble over a "missing" powder skirt, this is a great jacket that would work well in all 4 seasons.
I would recommend this product.
