Excellent design and quality, which is to be expected from this manufacturer. At a little over 570g this gives an indication of how generous the manufacturer has been with the Primaloft insulation. The insulation is extremely effective.
All the zips are robust and detailing and finish is to a very high standard.
I am 183cm tall and weigh around 90 kilograms, and the XL is a very good fit, not too tight around the torso over a baselayer, and/or thin fleece, and with plenty of room in the upper arms. From the elbow to the wrist, the sleeves taper. The sleeves are generous in length. The tapered lower sleeves and low-profile 'hook and loop'cuff adjusters are very much suited to wearing under long insulated gauntlets.
The jacket is also excellent for everyday wear.
The XL Keela Advance fits well under an XXL Keela Stashaway.
Dimensions of XL size when laid flat -
Armpit to armpit: 26 3/4 inches
Armpit to sleeve cuff 26 inches
Length of front zip (including tunnel neck): 29 3/4 inches
Height of tunnel neck: 4 inches
Length from rear of tunnel neck to rear hem: 34 inches.
