I'm 5' 4", 130 lbs, with 38" chest. My sleeve length from center of back is about 30 inches. Any advice on which size to get? I think I might need an XS, but I was hoping that someone else might be able to provide some advise before I click the purchase button. Thank you in advance.

For the benefit of anyone who might stumble on my post above, I went ahead and ordered a size small (instead of an extra small). I was worried that it would fit too loose, but it's actually just about right: roomy enough to allow for more layers without being too baggy. The sleeves are a few inches too long, but it doesn't really look or feel that way once I have the jacket on and tighten up the cuffs. For reference, my measurements are 38" chest, 29" waist, 18" torso, and 31" sleeve (C/B).

I also really like the fabric. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing a plastic bag. It's not quite cotton soft, but it's close enough to be comfortable and quiet.

If I were to change anything, I would add a two-way zipper. Being able to partially unzip the jacket from the bottom is nice when you want to allow for quick access to a firearm.

Anyone know a surefire way to identify the difference between a V1 and V2?
I have an XL V2 I just purchased and another that's a size Large(I bought used) but I'm not positive which version it is.
It's shorter overall with shorter sleeves, naturally. The HPG patch on the arm is a different color.
What details will tell me which version the Large is?

The only difference is that the V2 windcheater is longer in the front of the garment by 2" compared to the V1 and the V2 has straight arms instead of precurved arms. It would be hard to tell comparing different sizes, but you should be able to tell comparing the same size to one another. The front of the V1 would be noticably shorter in the front when wearing it.

Does the wind cheater (v2) have any DWR coating sprayed on it or is it uncoated?

So I received my HPG Wind Cheater in Coyote yesterday. When I pulled it out I looked it over and tried it on. All I could do is shake my head. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG!. Perfect outer shell for what I do when moving in nasty weather. A breathable shell with plenty of ventilation and room for some layers if it's really cold. Super comfortable. I Followed the sizing chart, order my T-shirt size and I'm really happy with the fit. Great garment guys. Thanks HPG for another piece of kit.
