    Hello,

    I am in the process of ordering a Klim Adventure Rally jacket and need a little help figuring out the correct size to buy. I am 5'7" tall with a 35 waist' 43 - 44" chest size, 29" sleeve. I weigh about 177. Large seems to be size that will fit my chest the best, but I am afraid the arms will be too long. Most medium jackets I try on are tight in the arm pits. If the adventure jacket fit loose, then the medium might be the perfect size. Can someone tell me how it fits in the arm pit area? Thanks for any help.

    Large might be too big. I am 6'3", 215#, 48" chest, 29" sleeve and I have tons of room in an XL. I could wear a Large if I never put any layers on. The only risk would be the arms; L and XL seemed fine for me.

    Thanks! I am going to change my order to medium in the morning. I think they oversize it for a compression suit if needed. I will use the armor in the jacket and heated vest for really cold days.

    Thanks again,
