Topic - Are most softshells quite short?

Taurig - on 26 Nov 2012
So I was thinking of asking Santa for a softshell for Christmas. I don't have ridiculous requirements, just non membrane, helmet compatible hood, and a medium amount of insulation at most. Went into a shop today to try a few on (a few Rabs, Montane, Sherpa and a membraned Mountain Equipment) but with exception of the ME they were all annoyingly short in the body. I'm not one to fo for knee length anoraks or anything, but the jackets I tried were barely past belt level. Going up in size to a large meant a load of excess fabric everywhere else, whereas the fit was good in the mediums I tried,bar the length issue. Anyone had similar issues and could recommend a softshell that won't pull out my harness or expose my midriff at a stretch?
