Royal navy gortex jacket?

Right ..i use army stuff at work and ace but for general stuff i thought a royal navy jacket would be better so ordered a long 190 ..104 top ..man it would fit a hippo..

So who.has one in smaller size and does the arms get shorter...like the raf ones..

Cheers....

You need to remember a lot of army gear fits over a ballistic vest.

For instance, I am XL but buy army gear in large.
I have US Army ECWCS level 4 & level 5 jackets, the level 4 (worn under the armour) fits fine but the level 5 is bigger as it's an outer layer.
