I am struggling on finding a good, "field ready", softshell jacket for myself.

The problem is that I am ~195cm/6'5 tall, and most of gear manufacturers only offer "LONG" sizing in field gear such as BDUs. Popular brands like TAD gear or Arcteryx are not an option for me. Pants are generally easier to find in long sizes, but I am having trouble especially with jackets.

I am aware that atleast Beyond offers custom sizes, but what other manufactures do you guys know? Rather than focusing on my need for new jacket, I would like some tips from other "giants" like me. Where do you buy your clothing?

If there already is a topic for this subject, please point me to that direction. I couldnt figure out specific enough search words to find information.

Have you actually tried Arc'teryx buddy? I'm the same height as you and own several of their tops in size large and they fit great.

I can confirm One Downs statement. They fit me well in Medium or Large (depending on how snug I want them).

Crye is also an option, they even have Xlong-sizes! 8)

Maybe I have longer body, since arcteryx jackets in size M are too short for me (especially from the front). I have normal/fit body, so L sizes are usually too big for me to be comfortable. M size could work in civilian/casual use, but I hate having my back/stomach exposed when bending over. So basically I'm looking for clothes that fit me without compromises. :)

Some older generation TAD gear clothes are usable for me, such as spectre or shag master (2011) in size M, but new gen (2013 ->) shag master / stealth jacket have shorter cut than older generations.

Crye does not have their field gear listed with different lengths, but Ill email them.

Thanks for the input guys!
