/ Berghaus Asgard Smock fit?
I have always bought jackets in 40. I'm maybe a 39.5-40.5 in reality. I tend to buy t-shirts in M, and jumpers in M/L. I tried the Asgard on again just now to try and get an idea of sizing. I'm wearing a t-shirt and a thin wool jumper, I could probably get a fleece/thin softshell on as well, but not much more than that. I do have quite wide shoulders though, so maybe a 42" chest with more normal shoulders and thin layers would work in an L. Best to try on I guess. Or order both sizes and send one back?
You've probably found this already, but SportPursuit are selling off Berghaus stuff really cheap for the next couple of days, including the Asgard and Velum. I've used them before and they're fine, just be aware that they dont send orders out until a few weeks after the sale ends, but I'm pretty sure they tell you that before you order anyway. Its sportpursuit.com or if you sign up via this link then I'll get a £5 credit if you do buy something.
I have ordered a L... I'm a 42" with large shoulders. I have asked SP if they could send me an XL as well and I'll send one back...
Depends on whether I want to wear it over my Pile/Pertex or not!!!
