/ Softshell for taller guys??
Jacket turns up and it fits quite snuggly, but its just too short. When I reach up it lifts to expose my stomach, even with softshell pants on :(
Don't fancy that half way up an icy gully!
Can anybody recommend a decent softshell for a taller guy? I'm like 6'2 so nothing extreme.
The Cotswolds store in Liverpool is terrible for stock. They only seem to stock waterproof jackets for the scallies to wear while they ride their quads and scramblers around the streets
I'm 6'3 and found Mammut to fit the best. Marmot are also good, but can be rather large.
Thanks guys. Getting really annoyed now I must have tried on 20
Jackets today and can't find something that works, or the shop doesn't have me size.
Just want a nice mid layer that is fairly windproof and not too warm
I've got a Rab hard shell and a Rab soft shell. Both have good long arms for me at 6'2" jackets are size large
The Berghaus Choktoi windproof fleece has a scooped back that works for me (6' 4"). Some of their soft shells may well be the same.
I had problems with the epsilon SV hoody as my back is longer than theey seem to size for. they redesigned the Gamma LT with a longer back and I'm very pleased with mine. hope you got a cool colour...
