What are some alternatives? What do other women with a long torso do?

Well, I don't have a long torso particularly, but I do have broad shoulders.  I buy my hiking shirts in the men's department.  They are less frou-frou anyway, and usually have better pockets.

Thanks! I have the opposite problem, ideally wearing the nonexistent petite-tall-womens shirts. I can usually find tall shirts that are tailored enough to not look ridiculous for other activities, but I completely strike out for hiking. I'll check out the tall men's shirts.

Same problem here. Mostly I buy men's outdoor gear. Now and then I can find a longer size in the x-women sizes, but then those appear really baggy. They at least cover my length.

If there really are none, then the answer to "now what" is to start a company.

I fully support anyone with interest making a startup! If anyone out there has professional tailoring skills who can make a hiking shirt that competes with the major brands, I'll be your first customer!!

If we could get one existing company to make them, it might be easier. Which would be the best on which to target our efforts?
