Right idea, but not likely rugged enough for the elements -- try this:

Exactly the same thing, but changing the base layer and long underwear.

Stein is showing light between his legs?

You want the sleeve to be longer than those on a sportcoat so that they overlap with the gloves and don't let snow in teacha.gif

I understand that. They are still way too long.

You might like Nau or Arcteryx. More of a tailored fit, with shorter jackets (and sleeves presumably). For next time, after you get hooked. nod[1].gif

You never said what you are wearing out in the village at night. Inquiring minds want to know. Also a reminder that this isn't Manhattan.smile.gif

Is there enough room in the outer jacket pocket for your breast wallet?

I'd go back and swap that R1 for an R2 - the R1 is pretty thin - more like a heavier base layer than a mid layer and the R2 has an amazing range and is much more versatile. Better to be a bit too warm and open a zipper to vent for a few minutes than be cold an unable to get warm.

Plus they are having a 30% sale right now and a easy return policy. You can also look on 6pm.com where they dump a bunch of their overstock.

Re: Nau. I have a bunch of their stuff as they are local and I know folks over there. I love it for travel and urban bad weather gear, but the sizing is very tricky and varies a lot between pieces so trying before buying is essential. ( I think Paragon has it in NYC) Plus the sleeves are notoriously ape-length, even for folks with long arms so that would be a nightmare for Foo.

I have a Nau Shroud of Purrrin soft-shell that I wear on light days; arcteryx sidewinder for when it is harshing it up, which is generally the rule out here.

90s micromaster transformer? You turn into an ice cutter called, erm cutter. You are an Autobot.

I would have had this problem with any jacket, so there's no point in trying another. Sleeves will always be way too long on me.

In all honesty, you should have gotten an XL or XXL kids jacket, like this:

It will fit you better everywhere and probably be cheaper too.

And I say this as someone who finds men's small jackets too long in the body and sleeves, and I've probably got an inch or so on you.
