The Squamish is not intended to be your go-to shell; it's not going to survive a deluge indefinitely, it will not warm you up significantly. What it will do is provide you with great wind stopping capability and provide you with long-term drizzle protection, short-term rain protection, and find-cover-in-a-deluge protection.
This jacket is incredibly thin and light. It's akin to magic, how thin this garment is while still providing wind protection and decent moisture protection. I wear it often to throw over non-windstopping layers when going out in cold windy conditions. And for parking lot jaunts in the rain? This can't be beat. It's so compact and stuffs into it's own chest pocket so once I reach my indoors destination I can just shake the rain off and pack it up, easy peasy lemon squeezy.
I'm 5'8", 165, size 41 jacket with a size 30 waist (I look like an upside down triangle from behind, stupid wide lats); the medium fit me well and will allow for an R-1...
I'm 6ft (183cm) and 84kg (185lbs) with shirt size of 42 chest, 34/35 arms, and 16.5 neck and the Large size fits me perfect. The sleeves are a just a bit long, not too much, but the velcro cuff adjusters takes care of that. Also when biking when you have your arms extended, I would think you want sleeves that are bit long. Haven't worn it yet so nothing else to write about.
This has been a great everyday jacket here in Lacey, WA. I have also used this jacket for running in the rain and it worked out great.
