I spent the last 3 months of the 12/13 season using this jacket and it is by far the best jacket I have ever owned. The new cocona material that ride is using is changing everything you know about temperature regulation. Up until now you sweat and your layers/jacket would pull that moisture away from your skin and evaporate it. Cocona takes it up a notch and evaporates the moisture before it even has a chance to build up on your skin. So you stay dry and when you're dry your comfortable. So in the middle of February at zero degrees, hiking in the Utah side country and slushy spring laps in this jacket were all comfortable in the Admiral jacket.
I"m 6'2", 200 lbs, 44 inch chest, 33 sleeve length and a 35 inch waist and the large fits great, the classic long fit is about an inch or two longer then most jackets. The chest ventilation is a nice change to your standard pit zips as you can release heat and cool down much faster as you ride or hike. I also love the built in Cocona facemask/baclava/ninja mask in the hood... You can wear it just as a facemask if needed but it is 100 times better than any other facemask I've used as my goggles don't fog with everything sealed up and it doesn't cause you to overheat wearing the full mask under my helmet.
If you've had problems with other outwear keeping your warm and dry during the day you should definitely check out what Ride is doing with cocona as it really will change your day on the mountain.
