Perfect Northern California Jacket
This kept me warm and definitely dry while snowboarding in low 40 deg F drizzly weather on the west shore of Lake Tahoe with nothing more than a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. For anything reasonably below that, I'd throw on a down pullover and expect to be fine. Not bulky at all. I imagine this will be the jacket I grab for most often due to it's lightness. I'm 5'8 and 155 and the medium fits well with room for a thin down pullover underneath. The hood is a bit weird without a helmet (too big). And with a helmet I found it slightly restricting. Not a big deal for me as I don't wear a hood very frequently.

Lightweight and warm!
I purchased this jacket as a gift for my husband and he loves it! I purchased it as a ski jacket, but since I bought it in May, it has only been used for backpacking in the Rocky Mtns so far (30-45 deg. F at night). It's very compact and amazingly warm for the thickness. My husband finds it very comfortable and moveable due to the lightweight, high quality construction. He's 5'8" and about 150 lbs and a size M fit him perfectly.

Great jacket. Seams and construction are of high quality. Blocks the wind well and the shell has kept me dry in heavy rain. The insulation is light, but good warmth to weight ratio and has room to be layered under. The sleeves have good mobility and I like the cinch cord on the bottom of the coat. The cut is stylish, it served me well for winter on the east coast. Only gripe is the hood is a bit frumpy and awkward, as it is made to fit over a helmet.

Nano Storm Jacket
I am 5'10", 200lbs and the Large fits perfectly. It has been very cold in Connecticut and I am able to wear a Arcteryx Hercules as a mid layer under the jacket. Blocks wind and is very waterproof. When I received it I did not think that it would be very warm. Completely surprised me by its warmth. Excellent jacket.
