XL -- sleeves are too short

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:True to size

I'm 6' 3", and I'm finding that the light rain jackets seem to save weight by not making the sleeves long enough. I had the same problem with an XL Marmot Super Mica. The sleeves on the XL Mountain Hardwear Stretch Capacitor Jacket are way too short.

In addition, there is not enough velcro on the cuff to cinch the cuffs snug against my wrists(the XL Marmot Super Mica was good in that regard).

Does exactly what it says

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I used this piece as an out-layer during a recent Rainier summit and I can tell you it's a nice piece. It keeps water out and while it doesn't breath all that well (it's a hardshell afterall) it was better than I expected. The stretch panels worked wonderfully. It is light and attractive. Definitely a keeper.
