jacket/pant question

so i went to try on some jackets and pants today.. new to the sport.. big guy.

let me mention i am attempting a diet.. but its pretty hard ya know .. so neway

i put on the xl jacket.. and it fits good around the chest and arms.. but see.. i have a ghetto guy booty.. so the part of the jacket that goes around my waste/butt is real tight and uncomfortable.

and i find that most snowboard pants come in size 2x at the largest.. i tried on an xl and i got them on but once again. tight in the tush.

they were burton brand

so my question is.. from yalls experience, what brand jacket and pants are made a bit bigger.. or make sizes for bigger guys?

from my research ... take a look at sessions. reviews keep mentioning how they are slightly larger then expected with a more loose fit overall.

good luck with your search! hope you have it all ready by the time the snowing begins!

i would try an stay away from quicksilver & burton bc it seems like they taylor to the smaller snowboarders, my friend is in the same boat as you. Although burtons RONIN is a bit more expensive but they make there pants and jackets alot bigger. but again be ready to shell out a bit more money because its there fashion forward line up of snow gear.

i like this thread because i too have a fat ass & need new pants. trouble for me is that on top of my fat ass (wear 36 jeans at the moment..) i also wear padded shorts under my snowboard pants, so i'm struggling with what pants to buy in order to make sure i have room for both my ass & my shorts w/o being tight at all. i guess with my shorts i'm probably about a 38, so i guess i need something that goes 38-40 on the size scale.

and if i do that, then drop a couple inches off my fat ass, will i be able to just cinch up a belt and comfortably rock big pants? or will they be falling off me w/o the padded shorts? kinda confused as to what i should go for this season.

we are definately on the same page true richard.

im a 40-42 and plan to put some kinda of under armor leggings or something under the pants which will add to size..

but i think rocking big pants is ok due to the fact that most pants that i have seen have like a velcro thing that tightens the pants. and if that isnt tight enough, i know you got a belt haha

Sessions pants have a real nice stretch to them to go along with some extra seat bagginess (XL is 38-40).

Spyder also has some pants that go a little wide without adding too much length.

Vans is very waist friendly (Backcountry/Dogfunk/etc sizing chart says L is 40-42 with 32.5" inseam).

Special Blend, Analog, and 686. They're all kinda the 'gangsta' outerwear companies. Might throw in L1 and if NFA is still around them too.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
