Me: 5'7" 180lbs - all legs, short torso, wide shoulders.
I was torn between a MD and LG and ended up going with the MD. The jacket pretty much fits perfectly aside from it being a tad long. Just spent three weeks going through Alaska and Canada in some pretty bad weather. The Klim Traverse kept me dry in some pretty heavy rain, which is all I was hoping for. Fortunately this jacket gives so much more. Generous pit zips and loose cuffs kept me cool and ventilated in high 70s low 80s sun. Its all decked out in d30 which all fits well - but you have to buy it separately. My only gripe is the collar. It is a bit soft and snug. Also, when not totally done up, it could benefit from having a way to secure the collar strap so it's not flopping around in the wind. At high speeds the button slap against the helmet gets pretty severe. This jacket works really well with the Traverse pants and Klim element long gloves.

Me: 5'7", 180lbs, 36x30 jean.
Bought a 34 in grey. Roomy enough for 2 add'l layers, even with full d3o. Maybe even a little baggy. Could possibly have gotten away with a 32.
Took these pants on a 5,000+ mile trek trough Alaska and Canada. We experienced all weather except snow #thankfully#. These pants performed excellently. Stayed dry in pouring rain #about 10 hours worth one day# even in zippers and seams. Layered in thermals and REI convertible pants, I was able to tolerate some 20-30 degree mornings. Though next time I'll go with a heated liner. It hit high 70's / low 80's in south east AK and the pants ran a little hot - granted I was still wearing my thermal layer. The thigh zips flowed enough air to be comfortable. Moved to these from a Tour Master Flex pant and was a major upgrade.
The D ring for keys is a nice touch. The pants fit easily over my Alpinestar Scout boots.
Two minor gripes: Velcro around calf/ankle has a tendency to come undone. Also, needs moar pockets There is one on the right thigh that'll hold my phone and wallet, but could benefit from another on the other side.
All in all, excellent pant. Thoroughly impressed with fit in and finish. Would totally recommend.

5'7" 185lbs 36x30 pant.
Purchased a LG REG initially. Way too much fabric on the legs. Exchanged effortlessly for a LG SHORT and the fit was much better. I can wear jeans with the pant/rain liner in comfortably. TONS of zippers for a highly versatile pant, could easily be a four season deal. Fabric has a tendency to get caught in the ankle zippers. Velcro on the ankle is lacking. All in all a decent pant. Would recommend.

I'm 5'7" around 200lbs and a medium fits me perfectly... with the liner in.. AND I can wear more than a t-shirt. Just got back from a 150 mile ride in temps from 60* F to 90* F and I am thoroughly impressed with the versatility. It's a heavy jacket, but with all vents open, and as long as you're moving, you're comfortable. Traffic came to a stop and we were stuck on fresh tarmac and the sweat started streaming. But I'd be sweating like a beast in shorts and a t-shirt too, so do the math. Tons of pockets, plenty of room for girth. Can't wait to dry it in rain. Will update later.
