Good build, terrible fit.


  • Nice material
  • Excellent construction


  • Terrible fit/cut

These were a huge dissapointment as I really like everything about them other than the fit. Excellent material, good look, and well constructed.

However the fit is just bizzarre. Most Rab clothing is sadly cut for the tall and lanky, and if you have any muscle bulk to your body, a lot of their clothes just don't fit, or looks silly, or require upsizing which results in odd fitting (ie extra long sleeves and torso for shirts).

I wear a North American medium, or large if I feel like being loose fit. I could barely squeeze into a Large for these, and even the XL sat funny around my hips and quads.
