I didn't have any issues with this jacket being too short. There is an inside belt that snaps together to keep the jacket in place at your hips. All day I kept finding new pockets it was great. The wrists are adjustable so that you can tighten them on the outside or inside of your gloves. The only con is that you can't tighten the hood up around your face and when you turn to look behind you, your face gets covered by the hood instead of turning with you.
