The bear suit jacket is the bomb. Mine is a large. It goes great over a base layer or light shirt. If I see it in XL, I'll buy that too. For reference, I'm 6'2", 185 pounds with a 36" waist. It's snug, but not tight.
I'm 5'11" 180lbs. The only 2 sizes available were XS and L. I ordered the L and it was way too small. I couldn't even make the zipper touch together, let alone zip it up. It seems like they have a lot of XS, but some are incorrectly labeled L. Returns are difficult. No return label included, and you have to pay your own shipping. If you want a replacement, you have to pay shipping both ways. I gave it to my 13 yr old grandson, it was hard for him to try on because the zipper is very difficult. It sticks tight at the bottom and is very hard to zip up and unzip. My last purchase from McGuire. The size was so far off, and the return policy was the icing on the cake.
I am happy with this product. I wear it as an under layer with a wind breaker over it. I have been wearing it every day when I take a hike in the state forest with my dog. Temperatures are sometimes only in the single digits and this jacket is warm, breathable, and comfortable.
Jacket is very warm. I like it BUT the fabric on the inside of the arms and sides of the jacket are rolling up. May be it will be OK after first wash.
The jacket is very warm for the cold New York weather ! It keeps me nice and warm, no cold gets inside that jacket!
