Nice, if someone jumps on that it's $89 for a $250 jacket, with free shipping.... seriously, if you need a good belay jacket or winter camping jacket you can not beat this deal.

David, how is the sizing on those?  Typically I wear at least an XL, all that is available right now is L and XXL.  I'm 6' 3", around 200 lbs and have long arms.  The arm length is always the hardest to get correct, thus the reason I'm asking!

I find they run big, but this is the official size chart for that item and it includes sleeve length:

I would suggest trying the Large, and returning it for a refund if it doesn't work. Nothing to lose really. If you are an XL than these three EMS stores are showing one left in XL, black, and you can order direct from them tomorrow (same price)

Albany. NY
Berkshire, MA

You can easily google their phone numbers if need be....

*Disclaimer, yes I work for EMS Customer Service :)

David,

Thanks or the heads up...I took advantage right down to the gear bucks card for $89 total. Got it yesterday, and am quite pleased. Everything you want in a belay jacket w/ no weight adding extras.

Dan,

I am 6'3" 205# and ordered the large. It seems to fit fine, including arm length, but not a ton of extra room. Enough for a base layer and mid weight fleece underneath. That should cover me for most anything in the NE, 'specially if carrying a hardshell also for when the sh!t hits.

Grrrr, day late and a dollar short.  Looks like I missed the 30% off deal.  Still a heck of a price, but I was hesitant to spend the money when I could get it for $89, really don't want to spend it without that extra 30% off now....  I'll know better on the sizing next time.

Guess I gotta be faster to make up my mind!
