Awesome buy at a fraction of the U.S. issue.
I used this stuff when I was in the military and it cost a fortune to replace. I managed to find this at a surplus store online for about $60 for the top and $30 for the pants.
The fit is oversized because it is meant to be worn over so if you are an XL, get an XL, it fits perfect! The adjustability on the set is perfect, it has an elastic drawstring for the pants and a snowboard like setup for the top. The set is water resistant but if submerged it will get wet and heavy, on the plus side though it is 100% windproof and that is why you buy it! The breathability is phenominal but of course if it is hot do not wear it.
With this being military issue, it is designed to be tough and rugged and is one item I will always carry and swear by.
