Skiing Orangutans Rejoice
By gra5981431 February 21, 2013
So i was reading some reviews online about this jacket before I purchased it. Everyone seemed to be very happy with the fabric and the features but most had a common problem... to quote an earlier post
"Sleeves really are as long as other reviews have said. Unless you are an ice-climbing orangutang"
Well this post and all others complaining about the sleeve length got me really really excited i am 6'5" and 175lbs i am the skiing orangutan and i have searched high and low far and wide looking for a jacket that would fit my arms. you regular sized people who complain about having sleeves that are too long have no idea how hard it is when you are on the other side of the spectrum! go get an Alpha SV from arcterex and be happy! For those of us that are a bit longer in the arm and everywhere else this jacket is the light at the end of your tunnel!
Scoop one of these jackets up quick and enjoy the comfort and performance of a great fitting three layer Gore-Tex shell!
Happy skiing, scrambling, climbing, playing!
