Mine fits great too as long as my thumbs aren't in the thumb loops. I put the jacket on over my Traverse zip T and and I really like the close fit of the jacket. I also can shoulder my gun just fine.
I bought this coat not have to wear bulky clothing underneath it, so I want it to fit close without binding, which it does now as long as I don't use the thumb loops. My fear with getting the XL is the coat will be so oversized I'll be able to wear another coat under it. If this jacket is half as warm as people claim it is (+ I'm very cold temperture tolerant) there will be no need for all the extra room in the body just to be able to have a longer sleeve, so I can use the thumb loops while wearing the jacket.
I think it will be a trade off, I either keep the large and only use the thumb holes (if need be) when putting on my Gore-Tex shell or get the XL so I can have my hands in the thumb loops when ever I want and have an over sized jacket.
This is the down side when you order things off of the internet with out being able to try them on first. I have a Cabela's within a 2 1/2 drive from me but they carry very little Sitka gear & no Sitka waterfowl at all.
I guess I just don't like compromising when dropping that much $$$$ on a jacket
