Burton ak Stagger Jacket
 
I've been searching online for three days and haven't been able to locate a Stagger jacket in Trocadero Denim in an XXL. Wondering if anyone knows where I might find one?

Any insights will be greatly appreciated!

XXL is probably a huuuuuuge jacket.

Make sure that is your actual size.

I bought a Medium and it was way too big for me, I had to return it and buy a Small (and I never buy anything in size small... Burton's jackets just run very large).

/\ This guy is right on the money.

I am usually a Large, and I had to get a medium AK jacket. It still fits a bit too big lol.

I'm 6'3 and fluctuate from 200 to 210 pounds, and up to 220 at times. I suspect the XXL will be a little big at worst. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any XL or XXL Stagger jackets to try on for size. I have three Oakley jackets right now, all XXL, and they are a bit big, but not over the top...

6'2" here, and i wear an XL hover jacket. XL stagger pants. I don't look too gangsta steezy, but then again i dont want to.

Thanks for the insight...what is your weight if you don't mind me asking? I don't like looking like a hood rat either, but I do like a little room in my outerwear for layering, etc...

around 95kg, it has a ton of room, i can wear the AK insulator, a fleece, base layer and even a low profile camelback under the jacket (keeps it warm). I dont think its easy for us big folk to look steazy, i mean, i cant imagine myself wearing an XXL coat.

Might as well go riding like this:

6'1", 205-210 lbs. XL Stagger jacket. Plenty of room with a thick fleece under. I think it should fit you too.

I know how much it sucks to blindly order stuff like this, since i pretty much buy everything for snowboarding the same way. If this can help:

I had it tightened around the waist, so it went up a bit. With the stagger pants i wear it loose and comes down to half my butt or something like that, i think i sit on it when im on the lift, and you can see that the sleeves are pretty long.

I saw a guy once wearing that haakson guy's version (like from The B, so i think its last season) it was like 3 sizes larger, looked a lot like a hoodrat (which actually isnt so bad if youre short) but then again there are so many jackets other than the AK line which are much better suited for style.

I appreciate you guys providing all this info. I will broaden my search to include the XL. And pailhead is right, buying blind sucks at times, but I have no other choice at this time...
