    Top End Stalking Jacket / Trousers - advice pls

    I'm looking for a top end stalking jacket and trouser combo. To use all year round where possible (would use a fleece in the hotter days in summer). I'm 6ft 4 and slim build, long arms (bucket me in the tall and lanky group) so I want to have a reasonably snug /tighter fit. Can't deal with bulkier jackets, like the Harkila Pro Hunter, which also look v baggy. Plus I build up a lot of body heat so would only look to have a couple of layers underneath (t shirt and sweater/long sleeve).
    Any tips would be welcome. Thx

    Out of all the jackets and trousers I've ever used the ones I use the most are now the browning hells canyon range I have 3 trousers and a jacket they can be layered to suit time of year and are very weatherproof, fit nice and are silent for really wet weather I got a set of austrian mountain goretex which is a shell over garment 100% waterproof breathable and cheap

    if the weathers scorching 5.11 trousers and a shirt do well with the goretex on hand if rain threatens my wife bought me the browning hells canyon as she liked the feel of it I now live in it. It stinks

    blaire,
    I have a Ridgeline Roar jacket and trousers which you can wear layers underneath but I think one of the best ways to go is Military Surplus UK. I bought a Goretex jacket and trousers for around 60 pounds and they are outstanding. I have also previously read that you can get a combat smock to wear over the Goretex to keep it quiet. The price is right but in my opinion you then have a very versatile wardrobe that you can chop and change as required. Just a thought.
