/ Shell jacket that fits me
Also I have a big head(!) so I find that most jackets zip up very tight over my face, leaving not enough room for a fleece neck tube thing.
So, do any of you remember trying on a jacket which was unusually short, or had very long arms, or seemed very roomy around the face when zipped up?
I'm replacing a mountain hardwear exposure jacket now many years old, much too warm but fitted perfectly. Nearest so far are the Patagonia shelter stone jacket, and a couple of the Rabs, the Myriad and the Bergen, but neither are perfect.
Thanks if you can help. It will probably be more for UK winter but thought I would post in this forum as it might get more attention this time of year!
It's not the most durable feeling jacket though, scottish winter may be a little harsh on it but then my shell stays in the pack most of the time anyway
PS I should have put this in the 'gear' forum shouldn't I...
