Jacket Advice (Calling all tall girls)
So i am a girl, about 5'9" and athletically built, with broader shoulders and long arms even for my height. Right now i have a 686 insulated jacket from a couple years ago. I love it, but the arms are just slightly too short, so when i raise my hands from my sides at all, the sleeves come up past my wrists and let in cold/snow. The jacket does have wrist gaiters, but since the arms are too short i cant wear them because they cut off circulation in my thumbs. The jacket is a large and fits well in the body, maybe a little big even, but my stupid arms are ruining it for me. I really like 686 and would love to stick with them(i love my pants by them), but their womens jackets appear to only come in L (no XL) and clearly the L is just a tad too small.
Does anyone have any brands of womens jackets to recommend that run on the big side, esp in arm length? I dont mind a baggier jacket, and have been thinking about potentially getting a mens if i cant find a womens big enough, but id rather not do this because my guess would be the torso would be huge on me since the womens torso fits me fine. I think i want to stick to an insulated jacket, but i suppose it couldnt hurt to try a shell so all suggestions are welcome.
