Rain Gear Question?
« on: December 08, 2022, 10:39:06 AM »
Hey YíallÖ I ordered a Kuiu Chugach TR jacket during their last sale and followed the sizing guide (Mine called for one size bigger than normal) and when getting it, itís fitting really loose, plenty for layering and then some but Iím wondering if anyone else feels:

1) The Chugach TR fits more true to size?

2) If itís worth sending back for the next size down or better to air on the side of too big for an outer layer versus fitting tighter? Any real drawbacks of a rain shell being too loose?

I did shoot my bow with it and it wasnít too baggy to draw back and shoot but the arms are really big on it. I live on the west side and do a mix of backcountry mulie and wet day-hunting for black tails as well as rowing drift boats for steelhead.

Thanks in advance.

I had the chugach and did not order one size up it fit snug but it was stretchy
I donít see a problem with it being a little loose for layering as long as it doesnít affect your shooting
I have the Sitka cloudburst now and it is a little loose but I can get a warm layer under it when needed

Iíd much rather have a little loose than too tight.
