Well Made Jacket
I love this jacket. It is obviously well-constructed from a nice, tight, dense sweater-like fleece, with strong seams. It just FEELS good. I initially purchased the XXL based on the sizing charts, but immediately exchanged it for the XL, which is a much better fit. BTW - the exchange was extremely fast and hassle-free, so thank you Arrak!!!
I would say the XL fits like one might expect a "typical" XL jacket to fit. For reference, the pit-to-pit measurement is 23.5"; from collar seam to wrist is 31.75" - nicely long, long enough to cover the back of the hands on cold days; front collar seam (sits at collar bone) to bottom is 22", and back collar seam to bottom is 28". As you can tell, the back is slightly longer than the front, which is nice for "butt coverage," but because of how it's measured it's not really 6" different - more like maybe 1.5 to 2" longer in the back than in the front. It's a nice cut. The back tunnel pocket is great for storing extra poop bags and my pup's Chuck-it wand/ball. I'll also use it to carry his collapsible water bowl.
I truly don't have any complaints about this jacket, but I do have a few comments for future modifications of the design: 1). the material is not really wind-proof; that would be a nice upgrade. 2). the front zipper is configured as a men's zipper (with the zipper components on the left side, as one looks down), and being used to women's zippers (on the right side), I find it is very slightly inconvenient -- but almost not…
