Extreme cold environments are usually dry and sunny. Wind resistance and insulation are generally a higher priority than protection from rain. Depending on whether your activity is more static or active, high-loft layers like an L7 may be required.
First try on it, fit well and keep warm, an excellent kit for my cold activities
Sizing is great and allows layers to be worn underneath. They didn’t offer a long size which I normally need but these come pretty long standard. I wish the knees had a little extra abrasion resistance material over them but so far no issues
10/10. Very timely and helpful response.
As I expected an outstanding product from Beyond, holds up to the extreme weather I teach in.
First off, let me say that these shirts are incredibly well-made. Having said that, I seem to be a bit of an in-between size. I am a 63 year old male, 5' 8", with a 42" chest and a 32" waist. The large size shirt fits me just about right in the chest but is a little big around the shoulders and, huge in the arms. The waist is slightly loose but acceptable.
The Beyond return policy is fabulous but, I liked the shirt so much that I decided to give it to my 6', 44" chest, 36" waist Son. He loves the shirt, and it fits him well!
I ordered a medium of the same model, thinking it should fit me, since the large is a little too large. The medium fits well in the shoulders, arms and waist, but the chest is a little tight. There's a lot of stretchy material in the chest so it's not uncomfortable, it just looks a bit like I'm wearing a muscle shirt.
I decided to keep the medium, it's for my backpacking trips in the woods so, I'm not really looking to make a fashion statement, I'm looking for durability, performance and comfort.
