I'm looking for a big and stocky jacket. Preferably 3 seasons up here in Canada. Hi-visibility would be awesome.

I'm 6'1 and 325 lbs. I've been trying on jackets and can't find one to fit. I'm usually about a 4XL in mens shirts and jackets. But the 3 and 4 XLS that I do find are way too small on the waist. Motorbike jacket sizes are wierd.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a specific jacket that you have? I'm at a loss!

Cheers, Rick

Check out Olympia, Klim, and Firstgear. Olympia makes good stuff that goes up to 4X (60" chest), and they have more room in the waist than some of the European brands. Olympia will cost you, but not nearly as much as Klim. Prepare yourself for sticker shock if you haven't looked at their stuff before, but they make a couple of jackets up to 5XL, which they claim is a 64" chest size, but most of their stuff goes up to 3XL, which they say is 56" chest/53" waist. Firstgear goes up to 4XL, which they say is a 60" chest/50" waist.

I have an Olympia jacket (and pants) and which is a size up from what I normally wear, so they may not be big enough. I also have some Klim off road gear, but none of their jackets, so I can't comment directly on their fit. Don't have any Firstgear stuff, but a couple of their jackets, the Kathmandu and 37.5 Kilimanjaro, were serious contenders when I found my current jacket.
