I adore this jacket. I ordered the lightning green in L. I am 5'6" and 145 lbs. The M would of been ok, but I like some wiggle room when I am skiing. The colors are great, and people compliment on it all the time. It really stands out on the mountain and in the lift lines. I ordered lime trimmed goggles to match and it really is a fun look and not too "guyish." It is warm too and I love how it zips up completely, even with a neck gator. I haven't tried it yet, but the hood would probably fit over my helmet if I needed it to. Love the jacket, been wearing it everywhere.
