I was wondering about the fit on...
I was wondering about the fit on this jacket. I am on the taller side and although I fall into the Large size for the chest and waist I was wondering about the overall length.
Does anybody know the zipper length on the Large and The Extra Large?
Thanks in advance
I'm 6'3" and just received the XL... The bottom of the zipper/jacket ends about mid crotch, probably just enough that you might sit on the edge of the jacket when you sit on the lift... not by much though. I think I could still rock the L though, the sleeves are super long and the jacket is baggy. I like it a bit longer/baggier though, less cramped if you have to layer. Actually, I think that the XL is large enough on me to defeat the purpose of the pow grip strap, which seemed loose around my thumb, but I was only wearing a t-shirt and no gloves when I tried it on.
On another note, I got the Measurement Plaid, and the blue highlights in the jacket, which look minimal on the website, are actually way more noticeable in person. Not that its a bad thing, but up close there is a lot more smurf action then you would think when ordering it.
I am 5'9" and 185lbs on a good day and I would say that if I was about 5 inches taller this jacket would be a perfect fit. On me it looks like I am almost wearing a short dress and I have stubby legs:-) Good thing I have no shame though because I wouldn't trade it for anything!!! I would say you should be fine in the large it is over sized!!!
I like that the hood fits over my helmet and stays there during the windy wet days we have been having.
