...your sleeves are too short.
So I decided to purchase a Glissade jacket due to my love affair with my synchilla pullover. They synchilla pullover is a cozy piece that is great to lounge around in, but offers very little wind protection on those cool days when I am too lazy to throw a jacket on but the wind decides to come along and rip right through me. So I purchased the glissade with the hope that this would offer me the lazy warmth I was looking for with a little added wind protection. Because the synchilla runs large, I purchased a size small and find that it fits wonderfully, including the arm length, chest, shoulders and waist. The synchilla is a generous cut that is a great non-technical piece.
After reading a few reviews, I decided to purchase a size Medium in the glissade because it's not as roomy and oversized as the synchilla. Overall, the length,chest and shoulders of the medium glissade fits great while providing a little extra room. I am a 40" chest and the medium closer to a 42" chest. The fabric is great. The fleece is warm and cozy and the nylon shell is stretchy and does ok blocking wind. Overall, I would love this jacket save for the sleeves being so short that if I reach for anything (up, down, in front of me, or to the side) the sleeves ride up to the middle of my forearm. When I have my arms straight down, the sleeves fall just past my wrists. Its a weird cut that i just can't figure out.Again, the jacket fits well everywhere else, and even offers a bit extra room in the chest, waist and shoulders, but those sleeves blow. I don't have this issue at all with the synchilla which is too bad because for me personally, I wanted to love the glissade as much as the synchilla.
After wearing this jacket around the house for a few days, I decided to return it. It's just not the jacket for me. If your a person with short(er) arms, this would be a great jacket.
Love this Pullover...

I live in Seattle...and this has become one of my favorites. It's warm, sheds the rain, it is made with a rip stop material that also stretches; the hand warmer pockets are great . I found it runs a little big...and I had to return an XL and go with a Large (6' 198lbs). This is the first Snap T Reversible I've owned...and I highly recommend!
Simple, Sophisticated, Amazing
