R4 weight fleece jacket tall size advice on 04/12/2013 21:12:46 MDT Print View

Hello everyone,

First off, thanks for the last bit o' sleeping bag advice. I ended up with a super sweet WM ultralight! Now if this rain/sleet/snow in Wisconsin would relent I might be able to use it!

On to the next question: with a 36" sleeve and slim build what is comparable Patagonia,s r4 weight fleece

I need a replacement fleece for my 10 year old eddie bauer (zipper is starting to go) and I'm not finding much in the tall / slim sizes.

Thanks!

Jason

I found out about this company from a post here on BPL. They use the exact same fabric that Patagonia uses in the R4 to produce a hoodie. Since they are local and make everything in Leadville I would contact them about making a custom size for you. Very reasonable prices.

Randy,

Thanks for the suggestion. Very reasonable price for the stock option. I'll have to give them a shout.
