Awkward fit for tall guy, cheap fabric

Reviewed by Exhausted Mama from Wisconsin on Monday, December 16, 2013
My husband ordered this jacket and the Marmot Ion Wind Hoodie at the same time to compare them. He's 6'3", 185, and we ordered an XL of both. This Canari jacket was a much brighter (safety vest color) orange than the Marmot orange, and a much cheaper, nylon-feeling fabric. For the price, however, neither of those factors would have bothered him much if it had remotely fit well. The elastic hem was really tight and so the jacket immediately rode up above his short, as soon as he lifted his arms, taking his shirt underneath with it. He's not heavy at all, so the hem seemed ridiculously tight for an XL, which he normally orders only for the length anyway. The sleeves were also much shorter than expected for an XL jacket, but again, he is 6'3", so maybe for someone shorter they would be fine. If they have a 24" waist. :-)
