It's pretty tech, there's plenty of pockets everywhere. There are probably burlier jackets in terms of durability and outright warmth, but if you don't ride back country at all, you'll be fine.
The hex print is fairly subtle because the orange is more of a tangerine, so the contrast between the white and tangerine colors doesn't make the pattern really pop. It's a nice balance.
I think it depends on how baggy you like your clothes. Are you 5'9" or 6' ... not sure what that means. If you are 5'9", you can do a M for a fitting/slightly baggy. An L would be pretty baggy considering you're skinny but probably not too bad, especially if you happen to put in like 10-15 lb. Also, if you ride anywhere really cold you'll probably want the L to layer underneath it. I think mine fits fine with a hoodie and base layer. If you don't want it to fit baggy with a baselayer, take the medium.
