Question Who makes XXL or large running XL jackets?

I'm normally an xl but all the Guinness over the Holidays has turned me into a bit of a plus-size model. I'm leaving for Tahoe next weekend. I'm taking my son to Big Sky in April. I'm thinking a light jacket (5k/5k) or shell would be what I'm looking for since Tahoe isn't crazy cold and MT will be hot. I will probably only be hittin' it a week or two a year. Any opinion on DC amo? I've heard Sessions run big. Any others?
Thanks,
Steve

Oakley jackets are big. I dig mine. lots of pockets, good venting, warm when it needs to be.

look at foursquare. i barely fit into size xl pants from any company, and my foursquare jackets both fit my nice and loose. my shell jacket is called the stevo jacket, really nice and durable, check that one out. as for dc, i own a pair of dc pants and a pair of foursquare pants, and i usually find myself grabbin the foursquares on the way to hill just because the material feels so much more durable and quality. not bashin dc, but im just sayin

Found one!

I ended up buying an xl Special Blend Circa. I tried other xl's from foursquare, burton, ride, etc. and they were all a bit snug. This one is their Freedom Fit but isn't too baggy for me. I wanted the Foursquare Adams jacket but couldn't find it in the color I wanted. Thanks for the suggestions.
