I need Sizing Help for the Mont-bell Tachyon Jacket & EX LIGHT DOWN JACKET on 03/11/2013 10:48:57 MDT Print View

Hello everybody!
To everybody that might have this combo.I need a little help with sizing as it applies to layering.
I usually wear a size large. If I order a size large Tachyon will it fit over a size large ex light Down Jacket? Or is my thinking backwards should the Down Jacket fit over the Tachyon?
At any rate I want it to be apart of a layering system and nobody in my area sells these items to try first hand.This will be my first experience with a down shirt and wind shirt combo I would appreciate any info and helpful advice! Thanks

The large Tachyon should fit over a large XLite no problem.

I usually buy one size larger than my chest size to make sure a wind shirt fits over any insulation piece. Let us know if only a size large (your chest size) does fit over the large insulated jacket. I realize the xlite is pretty thin.

Not the same jacket (same brand though) but I use a Large UL Wind Shirt over a Medium Ex Light. I think a medium might compress the down and restrict movement.
