Which brands of men's fleece jackets have shorter arms and torso length?
I'm 5'6, 185 lbs, with a 42" chest and 36" waist. I want to find a replacement for my well-used Columbia full zip fleece, but lately, they all seem to have longer arms and length than in the past. Can anyone recommend a brand/model that might fit me?
In doing some research to answer your question, it would appear that 35” is a pretty standard arm length across the board for fleeces we sell. Brands like Columbia, Arc’teryx, Patagonia, and Kuhl, and even REI were at 35” in the size large, which would be the best fit considering the chest measurement you provided.
The only brand that came in under 35” was The North Face. Here is a link to some of the North Face fleece jackets that you might consider.
Hope this info is helpful!
