Default Loose/ big jackets for a bigger guy

Hey guys, im hoping some of you have had some success with finding a jacket for a bigger build. Im 6'0 and 240ish lbs and just had to return an L1 XXL jacket for it being tad too tight in the waist. My previous jacket ive been wearing for past few years is a 686 Vestal XXL. A few jackets I am looking at now are:

Mountain Hardwear Lacerta Coat XXL Mountain Hardwear Lacerta Coat Men's

Mountain Hardwear Downhill Parka XXL
Mountain Hardwear | Men's Downhill Parka

Mountain Hardware will depend on the product family you are buying from. If it's tech shells and stuff it's going to be a slimmer fit. Which L1 Jacket did you return as they as well have three different fits, a regular, a slim and an in between. Personally for a guy your size I would probably look at Patagonia, something like the Powder Bowl Jacket would fit your dimensions well.

It was the L1 Berlin, its in the mail back to Dogfunk as we speak. But i took the liberty of ordering another one this time a nice Saga Anomie XL jacket, things look huge and hopefully fits hehe.

I'm 6'2" around 215 lbs, I bought a Nomis XL Tall off Whiskey Militia last season. The thing fits like a fucking tarp, I kind of wish I bought a smaller size. I think any Nomis XLT will fit you fine with lots of extra room to layer up

I'm almost exactly your size (6'1" 240 lbs.). My current jacket is an old Helly Hansen (long forgotten model) size XXL that is definitely quite large on me. Lots of room all around, except for length since I do have a long torso. With the pit-vents wide open, it sometimes balloons up and looks hilarious
I'm curious what others have as well so I can narrow my search when I look to update (although I didn't think I was big enough to have trouble finding stuff, you have me worried).

Haha, i have a muscular build coupled with a lot of fat. My main problem is I have huge quads/waist, havent measured my waist in a while but jean sizes i wear 42-44 depending on the fit which makes my last 2 jackets tighter at the bottom, ill let you guys know about the Saga jacket but it is a skiing company.
