Big Guy Gear Reviews are what the
sound like--gear reviews focused on the usability for big guys. If you're a
proportional six-footer, congrats: you can use literally every piece of gear on
the market. If you're a big guy, however, you know it's a frustrating
marketplace. I'm here to help. For reference, here are my basic
dimensions: 6'5", 235 pounds, dress shirt is 17"x37". I wear XL-tall shirts and 38x34
pants—as long as they’re not straight legged, boot cut, or whatever else skinny

Let me tell you, it takes dedication to try on a down coat layered under a Gore-Tex coat when it's still over 100 outside and you've spent the day moving furniture. The pictures aren't great since I just took some quick shots as I tried to wrap up my shopping, but they still give a good sense of what's new!
The UA website has several new items in the Ridge Reaper Barren line--the most exciting on their site are the Raider pants (pictured right) and jacket…
