Topic - Advice - Tall/slim fit down jackets

DaveDavina - on 19 Mar 2013
Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I are climbing Kili this December and we're looking for down jackets to use in camp and on the final ascent day. We're both pretty slim people so getting a good fit in outdoor wear can be tricky. I'm sorted with a Mountain Equipment Sigma jacket which fits a treat, but we're not having much luck finding a good one for him as he's also pretty tall (6'2"). He's already tried the Mountain Equipment Classic Lightline, the Rab Neutrino, and the Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket - all were way too short and wide in the body, and short in the arm.

Can anyone suggest a good slim fit down jacket for a tall slim man? We're looking for 650+ fill power or more.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Dave
