/ Rab Scimitar or Mtn Equipment Orbital - Help
Seriously though, has no one ever tried on an ME Orbital jacket who could give me a bit of feedback on the fit ?
Well I tried the schmitar and it was like a base layer!!! Especially around the arms shoulders. I'm not the biggest guy but it put me off buying one. Got the vr guide indstead, ofcourse, completey different jackets (my circumcises changed!) But a large vr guide fits nice, where as a xl schmitar was way too tight!
Also have a vr tour lite but in an xl that fits well. Rabs wierd fit system???!!!!!!
I've got an Orbital. It's an athletic fit on the body and it's quite loose on the arms/ shoulders, with great freedom of movement. Its also quite short on the body with slightly longer arms (which I like), really breathable and a harness fits with it lovely. I love it.
I actually found the sizing quite big. Im normally a medium/large (more large lately!) and found the medium fitted with a little room to spare.
I really like my Regatta gear, got a couple of micro fleeces and the softshell jacket but the jacket is starting to get way too small for me (or has been for the past year) so was time for an upgrade. Shall see how it goes. Cheers !
In seriousness buy as much food as you can before you get here from say an asda or tesco as once you arrive your only option is the co-op. Bucket loads of midge repellent would be usefull!
If you are staying on for a few days then either head up to Sligachan campsite or down the Glenbrittle. Loads to go at walking and easy scrambling wise !
