"This is the first DHB product I have written a negative review about. The quality of the garment itself is excellent. whether it stands up to a good downpour I will not be able to comment as I will be returning the item. The fit is just weird. I ordered a large being 6ft 1inch but lean in build. The fit in the body is race fit and to my liking although the tail is nearly non existance so your bum is going to get soaked if you dont have mud guards.
Where the jacket fit is really poor is in the arms. Inexplicably the arms are ridulously flappy and baggy and too long. Unless you had guns to rival popeys (and mine a bo no means pipe cleaners) then you are going to be carrying a lot of excess flappage. I was considering trying a medium but can only imagine will come up too short in the body. Shame because seems a great piece of kit otherwise."
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Bulky, Poor Fit

size: 6'1" 78kg 33" waist

Hi,

I'm 6'1" tall, 78kg and 33" waist 40' chest. What size should I get? Chest and waist says medium, but height says Large. I don't want a jacket that's too big on the chest, but I want one that's long enough.

Thanks
im practically the same stats as you. Just brought a large. Fits ok in the body, race fit but quite short, especially in the tail. the arms though were too baggy, too long and flappy. Just not a good fit which is a shame as quality seems great.
hope this helps.
