How does the length compare to Marmot Guide Vest? From the pictures I'd guess the Guide vest is slightly shorter and wider - although that could be an illusion. Anyone know? I've bought and returned a half dozen vests these past few weeks (none of them were marmot) because they were too short. I am 6' tall and 220 lb's. I'm pretty much all torso. Go for a size XL maybe? Also, the guide vest looks more resistant to tearing. Sound right?
Both the Guides vest and Zeus vest are 24" center back in size med. The Zeus, however, is 1" longer than the guides in the front and is a bit more fitted. The Guides vest uses a slightly heavier fabric (1.6 oz versus 1.2 oz) I would say go for the XL.
