    Climalite Pullover.
    These look good and I am thinking of one.
    At about 200 gms it looks excellent.

    The price is excellent.
    My query is on sizing.
    Wondering if anyone has one and info on sizing please?
    I have emailed them and am waiting but have seen some suggestions on the down version of snugness in the arm pit region due to possible sizing anomalies?
    I want to avoid too large a size and swimming in it.

    What about the down version http://sleepingbags-cumulus.eu/uk/categories/jackets/mens/primelite-pullover?gid=10&vid=1 slightly lighter but I'm guessing a lot warmer?

    I have the Cumulus Incredilite Endurance in a medium and usually take a medium in tshirts and jumpers.

    Thats really light for the insulation. Anyone considering I'm not sure it will work as an active layer if thats the plan, more a camp/stop layer. I have an original Rab Xenon in similar fabrics and if i walk in it i get soaked, just doesnt breath well enough. Great as camp layer, stick to Polartec Alpha for walking.

    Pullovers are not really forgiving size wise, if sizing is too close for comfort they can be a pain to pull on - I'd be tempted to size up.

    I'm interested.:bag: (before hard brexit...)

    I have the new Incredilite in XXL and it is really slim, almost to slim for me. I normally have XL but can sometimes take L. Based on that, you should probably size up at leastif you want to be able to have it on top of a fleece or/and a wind jacket at a break.

    Very true in my experience William, the 67gm/m in the Climalite is the same in another hooded pullover I have that has 122gm/m in the body tho' and 67gm/m in the arms. That is very warm and made to layer. I feel confident with something like the Kiuiu Peloton under this i.e. minimal layering I would be right for about a bit above zero static use.

    I've a Montane Fireball Verso with Primaloft Silver insulation, weighs 260 grams and a Crux Pico down pullover (no longer made) weighs 195 grams with 60 grams of down (I think). The Crux down top always feels warmer to me but that is a very subjective assessment.

    @el manana and @qy_ it is for static use and low met work use. The info on the sizing is much appreciated.
    Seems to be a real taper going on in the sizing from top to bottom. Ta

    I don't know the details on the Fireball Verso. I have the older Fireball and it uses 40g/m Primaloft Silver. The Cumulus is 67 g/m Apex so probably warmer, closer to the warmth of the Rab Xenon.

    William the stitching will only be on the inside to tack it I reckon-that is what Nunatak did on my Skaha in apex I referred to above. No stitching seen on the outside basically-brilliant.

    Thanks, I have asked for weightings on the L and XL and submitted my measurements to Anna at Cumulus and just waiting now. There has a been a lot of fluffing on the redditUL over the sizes of the down version-but they (seem) all tried to get the fit by using their weight, not their measurements I think so wanted to check. It says it is an athletic fit. So that is not too much of a surprise. One layer under maybe two thin ones.

    @Lamont-Cranston I actually have an Increadilite XXL but normally have XL but sometimes L. I can have a fleece and an windjacket under it but then it is tight. I doublechecked it now,it is an XXL not an XL as I said in the previous post, sorry. (Will correct that post).

    No worries at all, much appreciated. I seem to be coming across this over and over that you need to size one up unless you are quite thin and have a bit of a torso taper going on-I don't. Usually I'm between M and L, seems for this tho' I may be between L and XL.

    Anna recommend me a small when I submitted sizes but I just know small would be to tight ,glad I went for medium,

    Agree @WilliamC - my Rab Xenon (60g/m PL) vs my Montbell UL Inner Jacket (50g? of down) the difference is negligible, MB anecdotally marginally warmer :confused: ?..), Xenon feels warmer in the breeze - but how warm you feel at the time can be down to many factors. But i would expect the Montbell jacket to be a bit warmer than 40g/m PL.

    Ta. I gave her my waist chest and height. But I shall think about your advice for certain. How thick is the Rab Hoody you referred to?
    Edit --just checked, the Rab looks like about 370 grams. I would be wearing something about half that weight most probably. Macpac Nitro or Peleton or even my walking shirt, but good to know thanks.
