A few notes about the fit- I am 6'-2" 200 lbs with broad shoulders and long arms- length is good for me, chest fits OK (I am a 44L in a suit) with some room to layer. Odd part is that the arms are a little tight (some meat on my arms/shoulders, but I'm not super stocky)- so this works better for me with lighter layers underneath. So, perfect but for the slight tightness in the arm holes. What worked out really well, though- I gave it to my son who is also swim mutant- 6'-3" with wide shoulders and even longer, skinnier arms, (only 140 lbs.- narrower all the way around). The fit on him is great.
I've asked around and the rap on British wind smocks seems to be that the upper arms fit tight. Not sure if this goes for the even larger chest sizes- 112, 120, etc. If someone has better info. please advise.
Top British quality and colour. In green DPM pattern. Thanks KS , keep em' coming over the pond..!!!
