Lukewrote a question about Mountain Hardwear Chillwave Down Parka - Men's on January 7, 2012
Short version: are the parkas sized knowing you'll be wearing multiple layers beneath, or do you need to size up?
Details: I picked up a large MH Sub Zero SL hooded jacket on a closeout and it barely covers my base/insul/shell layers (girthwise, not lengthwise), but I'm wondering if I should have gone with a medium parka. I am a medium chest-wise (39-40), but am 6'1" which normally means long/large.
I'm thinking of returning the sub zero and getting the Chillwave parka in medium to have the 3 additional inches in back (parka vs. jacket), but I'm wondering if the medium will still be sufficient to fit my shell and insulating layers beneath: is this taken into consideration when they size the parka?
