I ride with a long jacket but im also very tall. Im sure that it won't interfer with riding unless it was really tight around your legs but i don't think any are.
Most brands have a long version and i have a nike jacket that is the same length as my long jacket so you could try those as well.

I personally don't see the point of longer jackets for warmth.
Wouldn't it be a lot better to just buy better baselayers/mid-layer fleeces if you're cold?

|Krismiss||I bought a longer jacket this year. I'm usually cold, so hopefully it works!|

I like longer jackets, not like gangster long, but more of a loose fit.
I feel less constricted when im riding, hopefully that translates into better style.

|poutanen||Can't stand longer jackets, or jackets with high collars for that matter. I ride pants with a bib instead (like coveralls) for extra warmth...|

3/4 length Park jacket used for All Mtn riding
Hi all, does anyone prefer the longer length jackets when riding all mountain?
I dont stand around waiting much but would think the addditional coverage length keeps you warmer on the lift especially when in crummy weather. What are other benefits? How about drawbacks- does it get in the way and become more wind resistant? when attacking moguls, bombing down, or tree runs?
