Hey everyone, riding time is here and I need help finding a "BIG" fabric style biker jacket. I have ordered a couple of 5XL from leatherup.com and the jackets look real nice but they are just a bit too small. I am 5' 11" and weigh a petit 280 and I normally wear a 3XL to 4XL jacket but the biker jackets seem to run small. Anyone out there run across a true size jacket and can steer me in that direction I would appreciate it very much. Thanks, be safe!

Try a 3xl joerocket alter ego 2.0. I have a 2xl long and I am 6'2'' 250, and it fits great. It has zip off outer covers on the sleeves and the torso to reveal the mesh that stays cool while you are moving. And I only paid about $150 after shipping (ebay).

Powr Trip runs big! I wear a 4XL from them, and it's really big! They are reasonable price wise too. I cannot fit the M109 5xl coat... That should put into perspective how big the coat is.

Here is the exact coat I have. Water pfoorf, removable liner, and a crap load of vents. Great for wearing even when hot out... and I'm always hot.

I was your size and a little bit more. I have the Teknic Sprint Jacket in black. I believe that I purchased the 4X.

I love the jacket because it's a three in one. I've lost a bit of weight over the last year and I need to get a smaller jacket. I'd be willing to part with the one that I have if your interested. Let me know. It's in very good shape, like new.

the joe rocket phoenix 5.0 is a great and goes up to a size 5XL. it runs true to size, possibly a bit bigger. i have a friend who is 5'10" and weighs 330# and he wears a 4XL and is a little big. he could probably get away with a 3XL but he likes it a little less snug.

different manufacturers will vary in size. some will only be a slight difference and others will be more noticeable. that is what makes ordering clothes online so difficult at times. i agree the joe rocket sizes are more accurate and generous in their cuts.
sorry i couldn't help you with your questions.

there is a place in nw indiana called Hunch Furs you might want to check out. the same friend i described in my earlier post also bought a leather vest from them and they go up to some big boy sizes. :bigthumbsup:
