Mountain Equipment Ogre Waterproof Jacket - Raven/Black reviews

Caution - super long sleeves! - 15 Feb 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Ogre Waterproof Jacket - Marine

I've just bought this jacket and am having to return it because the arms are ridiculously long. They are at least 10cm longer than is necessary - even allowing for the fact that you need to be able to reach with a technical jacket. I have 30 years of climbing experience in New Zealand, the Himalayas and the Andes and never come across a problem such as this among the many jackets I've worn over the years. I notice the previous review mentions the long sleeves as well, I wish I'd read this review before purchase!

I've given the jacket 2 stars because it has all the features you could wish for in a light alpine jacket, but the long sleeves are a fatal flaw. I hope Mountain Equipment corrects this next year. In the meantime I would not recommend anyone (unless you have super long arms) purchase any of the jackets in the ME line-up which are described to have an "alpine fit" as I would assume they are all based on the same flawed design principle.

Solid performer without weight penalty - 27 Jul 2016

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Ogre Waterproof Jacket - Marine

> Features: what you want, where you want them. Articulated arms are a very good design. Loads of helmet room.
> Performance: excellent so far, though main front zip is apt to stick (may have been sewn in too close to the zip itself).
> Size: I'm 6-2 (1.88m) but slim with long arms: the large is fine and allows space for base layer(s) but the arms are very long.
