Superb piece of kit! To start, I am 6' 2' (188cm) tall, 215 lbs, 44' (111cm) chest, 38' (97cm) waist. I do have fairly broad shoulders. In the USA, I normally wear a L-tall or XL. I ordered the Peski in XXL and find it a perfect fit for this type of garment. The shoulder seams hit where they are supposed to, the sleeves are plenty long enough, and there is room for a thick insulating layer underneath. I have only had a chance to use the Peski twice, once on a drizzly/sleety day in the low to mid 30°s(F), and once on a windy 50°(F) day. If the trend continues, this garment may soon take top spot for my woods wear. Currently, that position is occupied by my much loved Buffalo Teclite shirt. By way of comparison, the Peski has a better hood, is less clammy during high exertion, blocks the wind equally as well, is cut long enough to work with waterproof chaps, is more suited to hanging out next to a campfire, and doesn't seem to develop that awful funk that the Buffalo does. It is only slightly more bulky when stowed. We will see if the lack of side zip venting proves problematic in the 60°-70°(F) range once the weather warms up. So far, I am quite impressed with the quality of craftsmanship and thoughtful consideration given to design. The only quibble I currently have is that the waist cinch is bright red and has no garage or retainer, so there is just this loop of shock cord that sticks out at the navel. So far it hasn't caught on anything. Fingers crossed it continues to be a non-issue. All in all, I am quite happy with the Sasta Peski. Importing it to the USA was hardly an issue. It surprises me that items like this are not readily available here.
