    Need MTB jacket for big guy

    I'm 5'9 212lbs. I'm looking for a jacket for 30-50 degrees.

    I am "big" as well. I bought a Sugoi versa (on sale at my LBS for $70).

    Versatile jacket as the sleeves come off to make it a vest.

    Would obviously need something underneath for the temps you are talking about.

    I generally prefer layers, with a windbreaking shell to cover it all when weather gets in the 30 to 50 range. Sometimes that will include something made from wool to cut down on the number of layers. Some good arm and leg warmers can help too.

    If you just want a jacket with a 'big guy' cut, check this one out:

    Seems like clothing was designed for chipmunks.

    Often the arms are skinnier than the torso. Try on a Hincapie Fahrenheit jacket.
