/ Pertex Gilet / Body-warmer
I run quite warm so I've got merino wool base layers and they're really great and keep me at the right temperature used on their own when I'm out and about - only thing is, they show off the man-boobs a bit too much so, for the meantime while I'm working to reduce them does anyone know of any loose(ish) fitting windproof but not insulated gilets? The only ones I've seen so far seem to be fore cycling focussed and I'm guessing they'll be quite close fitting, and I'm never really comfortable in close fitting clothes!
Can anyone help?
If you're worried about it being tight, go a size up, surely?
It's the logical choice, I know...it's the 'slender fit' description that worries me...might just nip up a size like you say.
Although with 12 views in such a short space of time I'm guessing I'll be doing a service to the community by buying one and posting how it fits!
You might struggle, that sort of garment does the job it is designed for best if it is a snug fit.
I have got a Marmot Dri-Clime gilet, which I got in a sale. It's loosish on me - Gilet size L and I am 6ft 2" with a 38" chest.
