Good jacket for a big guy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Fits me (6-2, 260) better than similar XXL Marmot, Patagonia, etc. Would like an inside pocket, but like lightness, afjustable hood.
Warmer than I thought!

I'm 5'10'' and 190 pounds. I plan to zip in a fleece jacket. Should I go for the M or the L size? Thanks!!
Chest size is the most reliable for sizing a jacket. What size suit/sportcoat do you wear?
My chest size is 40 inches
Super. That puts you right smack bang in the middle of the M range, so at that point it really is about how you want it to fit and how big a fleece you are considering. If you're going with a very light thin fleece I'd stick with the M, but if you're using something fluffy you're going to have to go with the L.
So... with thick layers, the L. With no layers or a single very thin layer, I'd stick with the M.
Honestly though if it was me... I'd probably look for a jacket with a slightly different fit profile. Something with a slightly smaller L size would be ideal for you with a fleece. Or something with a different fit profile (this being "regular"... I'd look for "athletic")
I hope that helps. This is the sort of thing I'd order in two sizes and simply return one.
Thanks very much for your help. I have followed your advice and ordered both sizes so I will be returning one of them.
Warm insulated jacket
This jacket has limited bulk but is a very good insulated jacket and works with the TKA 200 fleece as an extra insulating layer for when it drops below freezing.
