Anyone got one - Opinions?
I'm thinking about getting an OMM Cypher Smock.
But, I'd like to know if anyone has opinions on one, based on their experience of wearing one? I'm thinking of a Large.
One problem I have is getting touchy-feely with one, and as I'm 6'2" I'm reluctant to buy without some idea of what I'm getting - sizewise. I'm medium build.
So, here's my direct questions:
Is the body of reasonable length? Are the sleeves long - given the thumb loops? Is the sizing narrow, or, reasonably ok fitting for wearing a 100 weight fleece underneath?Does the e-Vent material feel durable.
I was waiting for a Montane Spektr, but having seem photos of it, I think it looks very short. An obvious way of saving weight, but, not as practical?
44" chest and 34" from centre of neck to my wrist and an XL fits nicely.
Wool layers (thicker than 100 fleece) fit underneath and sleeves are long enough for the thumb loops to work.
Apart from the horrible yellowness, it's fine (to be fair, mine's yellow for using on the bike!).
Are you sure you mean Tyrannosaur arms? They were really terribly short you know
tis true, they couldn't even put food in their own mouth with them.
Is this jacket the same cut as the Kamleika? That had Orangutan like arms.
Went for a PHD Alpamayo instead.
The Large is only 435 grms - it's what I would call a full on smock* - and there is plenty of room under it for layers or down jacket. This weather has stopped me getting it wet, but, I've no doubt that it will perform well in the moggies and doggies stuff in Scotland!
* good length; good hood, good zips; storm flap
I went for black; the yellow was a bit too much for my eyes.
Same thing happened to mine. Have been offered a credit note but to be honest am thinking I want something else in the light of peoples' experiences.
