Gore clothing – whats the fit like?
I tried on a couple of Gore windstopper jackets and the Alp X yesterday at my LBS.The windstoppers are nicely snug but not too tight and the Alp X was loose but not too baggy. I’m 6ft 2″, slim with longish arms and I found the fit of the large about right on both the windstoppers and Alp X. At 6ft 3″ you’re probably just getting into XL territory but the Alp X definitely had longer arms so you might get away with the L.
jimbo – I ordered a Tool jacket from Evans last night. How do you find yours?Posted 9 years agofisherkingMember
I have a XXL Tool (jacket), I’m just shy of 6’2″ an weigh 17st and fits great. I also have an AlpX short sleeve jersey which also fits excellently, especially now I have lost some weight! I’ve found the tool jacket exceptional, it’s really warm just with a baselayer underneath and obviously showerproof, unfortunately I forgot about the pit vents whilst going uphill at Whinlatter on Saturday, as I found that rather hot for a fat bloke 😀Posted 9 years agojimbobrightonMember
yeti – It’s great. super breathable, I’ve had a day out scrambling up snow covered slopes with my bike in Kettlewell, kept me warm and dry, despite sweating like a horse.
super rainy evening in north downs, although it’s not touted as completely waterproof, it actually is pretty much watertight. it hosed it down and I was bone dry underneath with a base layer.
I was out in brighton sunshine on the south downs at the weekend. 8-10c and I didn’t overheat.
in short, it is the absolute nuts. recommended to everyone!
snug is the right word for these jackets.
