Gore sizing.....cut is now too small...!
on February 21, 2014
The service I got from Competitive Cyclist was excellent...!
This is about the jacket itself....This was to be my second jacket, as I love the first one, and wanted this color for safer riding on cloudy low-visibility days..
I ordered exactly the same size and model# as I've had and loved for nearly a year, and when I got it, I first thought that maybe my Christmas/Holiday dining experiences had caught up with me...;-)
Upon closer examination and measuring, I determined that Gore is now cutting this jacket to a much, much tighter fitting standard than previously...The body? Part me, part the jacket...But the arms were now so tight I could not wear my skin-tight arm warmers under the sleeves, and I know my arms are not any chubbier than they were...!
By comparing the seam-to-seam measurements with the new and old jackets, I was amazed to find out that the cut was between .5" and 1" narrower in all dimensions....overall length of the arms and body was exactly the same, so I'm sure I had a 'large' to compare....
I'm now forced to find another jacket.....the XL size was just longer and had longer arms...the body did fit well, but the overall length was for someone much taller than my 5'9"s.....!
