Hey everyone! New to the forum, getting back into snowboarding and one problem I’m having is finding a jacket. I’m about 6’3 285lbs (and declining), riding on the east coast primarily. Anyone have any recommendations of specific jackets or brands that run bigger?

Also would like to get some new bibs!

Thanks for any guidance in advance.

Helly Hansen has some nice hellytech size 2xl gives lots of room for pads.. I have had one for 5 years, finally feeling its last legs always warm and dry

I've always found that Analog fits very, very generously.

Also, anything made by Burton with 'team' sizing is way larger than you'd expect.

If you want a spare, you could also check out trew gear. trewgear.com I've got the powfunk jacket in XL. I'm 5'10 240lb and built like a barrel with legs. fairly roomy jacket, allows for layering, AFAIK. They do an XXL, and their customer service was great for exchanges etc when the size wasn't right.

I’m a large dude as well and I found Columbia whirlybird ii jacket for 35 bucks. Comes with a mid weight jacket as well.

Edit: I found this on amazon and I sorted to the lowest price first.

I wouldn’t necessarily call it a stretch jacket, Here is a link to the house for the specific jacket. I can post a photo later if you want! https://www.the-house.com/bt4clft06tbdtb19zz-burton-snowboard-jackets.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAno_uBRC1ARIsAB496IXxXGTqz5JkHiNFU7BOqPpr_tLoCQmgxibQ1l-mhkT_faDNdp9c17waAi7qEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Awesome! Good to hear about exchanges aswell, because some places charge restocking fees and shit /:

Aye! Thanks, I will look into it. I just got some columbia snowpants (not my preference of color) but for 80% I couldn’t pass them up.

You will have to post clothing back at your own expense, and in pristine saleable condition etc, but that's pretty standard. I am not aware of any restocking fees at Trew. email them and ask questions.
