For reference I am a consistent XL in just about every shirt, jacket, coat, vest, etc. regardless of purpose/sport/environment, XL just fits me. I read some of the reviews before hand about sizing being too big or too small. So I ordered L, XL, and XXL to try out.
I found that regardless of size the outer jacket was huge compared to the detachable inner puffy liner. It's almost like the jacket is designed to fit 2 full puffy jackets underneath it.
I found that the XL outer jacket fit my length perfect but I was swimming in it, even with the included inner puffy attached. I found the XL puffy to fit perfect on its own.
I found the L outer jacket to be too short in the arms but fit much better. It was still big, but I wasn't swimming in it. The L inner puffy fit very snuggly, too small for my liking.
I didn't even bother with the XXL considering I was swimming in the XL.
Ultimately I kept the L size and will let my wife use the inner puffy liner for her early morning walks as it fits her well. I have other inner layers I can utilize and I'll deal with the slightly short arms in the outer jacket if it means I don't have to search the folds of the jacket for the pockets.
The quality seems great, and I like the items, don't get me wrong. But the sizing is very strange on this one...
Very impressed the the item's quality as well as the customer service experience! Will definitely buy this brand again.
Having purchased a Bee-yoo-Tee-Full blaze orange parka this late Spring for the hopeful opportunity to hunt this NEXT WINTER, I find myself being repeatedly bombarded with requests from Gamehide for a review on its performance. So, here is my assessment:
Since purchasing the Wild Systems Parka from Gamehide, the parka has performed flawlessly at hanging in the closet.
As to how well it will perform out in the field WHEN IT GETS COLD later this coming winter, I am hopeful that it will do as well in the snowy mountains as it has been doing in my dark closet
Warm comfortable easy to move in.excellent price for the quality
Very warm, well made. Have not been out in the rain yet to test waterproof capability.
