    What size Frogg Toggs/ Rainshield O2/ DriDucks for my Sierra Stealth ?

    I purchased the Sierra Stealth w/ 900FP down:

    I am 5-9 and 195 lbs:


    I also purchased their down sleeves in size Long:

    I suppose I'll look something like this when all bundled up:


    I'm wondering what size rain jacket you'd go for to keep all that down dry?

    According to the size chart on Backpackinglight I'd wear a size small, but that is with no insulating layers on and just a T-shirt.

    alcon,

    I’m 511 and 185… the jacket in the picture is a Dry Ducks XL… Note the bottom of the quilt is tucked up under the jacket… Better would be a parka length or Old style Anorak length, Just above the Knee…. Go at least one size up from your regular… Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the info. What particular quilt is stuffed under that rain jacket in that picture?

    Hrmmmm....

    Now that I think about it, I can either pick rain protection while hiking all day (seems like a size small according to the BPL website) or a larger size to accommodate the JRB quilt around camp. I doubt I'd wear the JRB quilt while being active on the trail. If I hike all day and it's raining I think I'd rather have a jacket that fits me during the day, and then at night sit in my shelter away from the rain if need be.

    Thoughts?
