I purchased this from back-country about 2 months ago for the 2012/2013 snowboard season. VERY happy with this product... as per other reviews.. do NOT put this on cold and it operates best when close to the body. Can't speak as to the breathability/heat as I've only been using for snow-sports where it's not an issue. I like the low-profile as I am able to wear it under my hoodie and it's barely noticeable which is nice when doing the Apres at the end of the day. I'm 6'1" and about 180 with longer limbs/slim build and it works great for me.... almost like it was a custom fit. POC... keep up the great work! Very impressed with your product!! I haven't taken to many nasty falls but the few falls that I have I've been happy with the protection!
