These look really good especially in black.

Oh you lucky bastards that can afford one right now. I hope to get a used L in the aftermarket.

I'm torn sizing wise. I'm 6'3", 160 pounds. Would a medium or a large be a better bet?

Everyone wears their weight differently, so I think it's always best to compare IH's measurements (and measuring method) against your best-fitting apparel.

My experience with the previous model is that the shoulder measurement is critical. It was a touch snug on the IHM-02. This may have been remedied with this latest model, however.

Without giving it too much thought, my advice would be to go with a L if you have broad shoulders, and a medium if not. Again, your best bet is just to take a little extra time and measure the stuff you already have.

The IHM-02 is a great jacket, though; and I'm sure this latest model is even better.

Is it possible to hot wash and machine dry one of these or will that f-up the ventile?

Thanks G I thought I read somewhere that ventile had to be washed a certain way.

I can't believe that.  It's cotton and used in the Military, so I am certain, you just wash it normally...

I'm 6'2" 165 pounds and need a L. Last year's L was spot on, though I also find the shoulders to be a bit small. Just like those on the deck jacket - but due to ther generous arms L fit me in both jackets. I need 19" shoulders in shirts btw.

This fabric was developed to give a longer life expectancy to pilots who had to eject into the North Atlantic in WWII.  I don't suppose they were hand washing their survival suits with Grangers Pure Liquid Soap for Ventile, between sorties.  I'm not saying that doing that is not a good idea, but like the survival suit, a field jacket is to be worn and worn hard and if you have to treat it with kid gloves, it rather defeats the purpose...

I've washed mine (the older version that is) once, 40 C. Nothing happened and it didn't shrink at all. Will probably wash it again soonish.

Same. Zero issues with a regular wash and hang dry with the old model.
