Great fit and protection!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bear Grylls Men's Freedom Jacket by Craghoppers (Apparel)
The XX-Large size fits my 1.92 meters 82 kg physique perfectly which is actually a nice surprise. The material looks expensive, is pleasant to touch and is 100% waterproof.
The greatest thing about the jacket is the hood which
1) has a head size adjustment so it doesn't fall me on the eyes and sits just where I want it
2) has a wind/rain protective brim all around the face which is super useful.
Easily best jacket I've ever had. Hope it serves me long!

Is the XXL really tight on you, I'm your height but weigh more than you.

It's not tight at all on me. There's plenty of space left.

There is no mention of the inner lining/material type. Is this a stiff plastic type of lining or is it a more comfortable brush type material? Thanks.

The inner lining is a synthetic mesh loosely attached to the shell. It doesn't feel stiff to me. Feels comfy but not as comfy as a brush type thing on a fleece. On the other hand, the absence of brush makes this one very compact when packed. As small as 1/4 of a similar sized fleece in a backpack.

Let's see now...
(1.92 meter * 39.37 inches/ meter) = 75.5904 inches
(75.5904 inches / 12 inches/foot) = 6.2992 feet.
Hey, same height as me!
(Sorry..us dumb Americans never went metric...dammit.)

Wow, Man! Thanks indeed for doing this hard work for me. I thought of converting the numbers myself in the beginning but when I looked at them the results looked so unreal I kinda gave up on the idea because of fright of being laughed at ;)
