1. If I want something light, light enough to be able to wear on a February day in Breck, but only just light enough to have to throw on one more layer in Southern Wisconsin, would this jacket work for me?
2. If I am 5' 6" and I want a baggy fit what size should I get? (not overly baggy like it goes down to my knees)
Whatup BurbMan, glad you're holdin it down in Wisco! This jacket has a medium amount of insulation so it will be warm enough for shreddin Crystal Ridge, Devil's Head, Wilmot or Sunburst in the dead of winter but it's light enough to ride milder days at Breck.
I suggest a size Small since you're 5'6". That will give you a baggy fit but not super huge.
Shredwise is right on point with this.
