Big Boy jacket

I'm a good size 54- 6'4", 315 lbs, 37" sleeves, 54"+ stomach...18"+ biceps---size 13 hands, 14+ boot.

So, I'm in the market for a new "winter" jacket to replace older Belstaf that lets too much air in now.

What fits a big guy?

Would like it to be Goretex or similar. I do not like coated clothes as they do not breath and I end up wet from sweat.

The Aerostich Darien is high on list. Klim might be if I rob a bank. What do you like in the Klim? So many models.

Mainly ride road and back dirt roads. GSA/ LT.

Re: Big Boy jacket

Darien. The folks at Aerostich will make jacket and/or pants to your measurements. We visited the factory when the Curve Cowboy Reunion was in Duluth, and the computer controlled cutting table was demo's for us. Amazing and it allows one-off garments to easily be made. There is information on their website for measurements and sizing.
