Sizing way off!
on 3 January 2011
Ok I never normally bother with reviews but felt I had to write one this time. After reading the other reviews here I thought I would take their advice and choose carefully the size I require. I'm 6'2" 108 kg and built a little awkward for a lot of clothes. But being in the forces I know that there are items out there made for the larger chap, just got to pick the right size.
This jacket is a great product, as you'd expect from the Germans. Ex military issue but in good condition and plenty of life left in it. I chose XXL. Normally XL would be fine, but people had mentioned the small sizing issues and I went one size up for comfort. Well what I got wasnt XXL. Wasn't XL, wasn't large... Might just class as a medium! I had several members of the family try it on Cinderella style. The only person it fit was my sister, who is a size 12. Looked great on her... But I wanted it!!!. The seller is having trouble I think with the NATO sizing label. I'm around 190/108....I got 74-115/90.... So far off the mark I couldn't get an arm in. PLEASE PLEASE seller look at your sizes. Go to the British forces sizing website for details. You have great products at a great price but letting buyers down with poor sizing. I gave my jacket to my sister for the price paid wasn't worth all the costs of returning and getting another.
