Wow, thanks for all the info guys, (especially Spirit of 69). Ok, let's get started:
Personally, I would prefer an unpadded because it does not usually get very cold down here. I also want something that is light and easy to put on or take off.

Are you talking about Nylon? It's very smooth and makes a distinct noise when you rub it together.
I find that my other medium jacket fit's perfectly, though it is designed to be a bit tight. Should I just go for the large then?
I don't know my exact sizes though. I'm about 5'10" (I believe that's about 180cm) tall, and I wear size 32x30 jeans, however, I must were a belt with them or else they will slide off while I'm walking.
Is there a difference between American measures and European measurements? For that matter, which one does Merc follow? Something else, too, my arms are kind of skinny, I'm a bit self conscious about wearing clothes with overly baggy sleeves because I think it looks bad. Of course it's not going to kill me, but this is personal preference.
The Baracuta, I believe, (I'm just going off of memory), cost about $300. It's way above my price range.
Besides, I'd prefer very dark gray or I can settle with black so the variety of colors isn't a priority.
For the sizes, I can see that you all are much bigger than I.
I'm defintally thinking either a M or L.
Anyways, here's the video that originally got me interested in Harringtons (it might be a bit distasteful for these forums): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSfHGEqmUDA
. I really like the way the Harrington looks when it's unzipped.
