Will be on the east coast, Toronto & Montreal. I dont have a lot of experience with Veilance (had a partition coat once that I returned due to sizing) but I always felt like it wasnt compelling enough vs main-line arcteryx which is already really good. But i may need to educate myself on the differences

thanks for the insights. TBH I probably should indeed go the technical jacket route but i've been eyeing a deckhand for a minute so just looking for an excuse lol

I mean east coast is canada goose territory depending what you are doing, the difference between mainline arc and veilance is not much, more than fit and a little bit of detailing, no branding etc performance wise constriction and materials very similar, a vis deckhand will 100% not see you through an east coast canada winter.

you would probably want the Altus/monitor down or node down from veilance to get you close to what you need with some layers for east coast weather in my opinion

Before I get a friend in JP to go shopping for me, is there any vis size that's likely to fit a 6ft5 person? I've struggled with Japanese brands before.

I’m 6,2 and 4 can sometimes be too short. 5 is perfect length in body and arms

Just gave my Lakota it's first proper test in torrential rain. I was a bit dubious of its ability in anything other than a shower but have just worn it in heavy rain for an hour and nothing got through. Had an Iris underneath and it was bone dry.

With the newer season items (20ss and forward) the stuff is drop shoulder and oversized. You'd probably be fine with some of the outerwear in size 5. Lebron james is 6'9" and he is able to wear the amplus / jumbo knits (Although they look a tad snug on him). Stuff like the iris jkt (not the iris liner), the overcoats, parkas, etc will fit you fine. Jeans are a no go because they stop at 32in inseam. Only problem, due to oversized cuts, theyve cut down the amount of 5's they make, or dont make at all depending on the item. Best to check with your proxy / buyer on item availability.

Most popular japanese brands are oversized now, so XL or XXL should be fine. For example, most of the cityboy style clothing (WTAPS, Nautica JP, Nanamica) will fit the bill with larger available sizes.

Second Thorson they've had up in a couple of days. Other one was an olive one. Depop to be avoided for Vis.
