I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on sizing with the Norwegian Rain Bumfreezer. There's one posted by Luxeswap and I'm thinking of getting in on the bidding. In short, I think it is a little big for me, just wanting to think through if it would still work and just be a little roomy.

I'm 5'9" and 185 lbs, and wear a size 40 jacket and carry a little more of that around the waist, often wear size 35 trousers. I do have a NR Moscow in a medium, and this fits pretty well. Certainly not big but not tight either.

I know the general advice is that the Moscow is a relaxed fit and if I wear the M well, the trimmer Bumfreezer size large would be ideal for me... although there's potential around the waist it could be tight.

Does anyone think the XL Bumfreezer will be too big? Or just a roomy-but-acceptable fit?

Please someone tell me it'll work ok and I should get in on the bidding 🙂
Ah, it's one of the blacked out anniversary Bumfreezers... perhaps I should get in on the bidding action. I have similar stats to you - 5'9", 170-175 lbs, wear a size 40 jacket (~39" chest) and have a Bumfreezer in L. It fits nicely - I think I can squeeze a sweater underneath but definitely a vest, and it's not huge on me. I do cinch down the waist adjusts but don't think the jacket is particularly tight around the waist regardless. I think XL would be roomy but acceptable.

Long time lurker, first time posting.
I'm very close to pulling the trigger on the Moscow. I was just curious what the ballpark estimate would be for the DHL import fee/duties I would be hit with, ordering from the US.

@kalenov you might be able to get one in the US via No Man Walks Alone, or if they don't have your size in stock right now, you might at least be able to look at the price difference to infer what the import fees might be

I have the opportunity to get one of these limited edition Norwegian Rain x JohnBull rainchos but I am on the fence. As you can see the primary difference is the addition of the large pockets on the front i.e. the Nesta Falck pockets except scaled up. Does this ruin the Raincho or add to it? Would you go with the regular version or this one, if you had the choice?

I pulled the trigger on a medium Moscow Homme in mixed black directly from NR.
For the sake of helping others if they're curious what the import cost would be the US, so they're not caught off guard.
Having it delivered to my house in Indiana, it came to an extra 240 for the import duties/taxes.

Yes, I got hit with a 240 import cost on a raincho too. Seems to be consistent...
