I can sympathize with your plight since I am rather short and have trouble finding stuff that fits me—to give you an example, most of the FWG jackets that are made for someone who wears a 44 suit jacket like I do, are designed for people a foot taller than me.

The problem with shopping for stuff like foul weather gear over the internet is that you really need to try the stuff on. One thing that you may have to do is get the stuff tailored to fit properly. While this is expensive, given the longevity of a good set of foul weather gear, it really makes sense to do so.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
