Down jacket that's not a down jacket and a little bit longer?
RAB Generator Alpine jacket. Synthetic and longer cut, arms and body. I am 6′ 4″. Large hood very cosy. Perhaps not ideal for stuffing in a pack but for a general winter coat i like mine. Endurance outer helps with water resistance. HTH

Get hem to make a fibrepile and pertex long jacket, like the one at bottom of page…Posted 3 years ago
I’m looking for a new winter jacket. I’d read some previous threads and thought that something like a Montane Prism fitted the bill. I’ve since tried one on in various sizes and its just too short in the body. I tried a couple of other brands but they all seemed to sit too high. I’m 6′ 4” and reasonably slim. Has any anyone else come across this issue and does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.Posted 3 years agokayak23Subscriber
That’ll be a down jacket then?
I presumed the anti down sentiment was due to their short cut as mentioned by the OP and not down to
their boxed puffy designthe often appalling and unnecessary suffering of the animals used to produce them .

Rab Generator Alpine for £99 but in red only……….I got the last small black one but its quite long in the back compared to my previous micro puff jacket and the hood seems pretty good tooconcept2Member
Bit late sorry – mine is a xxl as i use it as a general coat (over work stuff etc) and am more rower than cyclist in size. The sleeves are almost too long and it is certainly longer overall – i have a montane prism (i think, grey with orange inside) and that i use as a fleece replacement, too “small” to be a proper coat for me.
