Confused re sizing
I am looking at one of these I'm in New Zealand so I cant try it on, I have read through the reviews and some people say get a size bigger than your correct size others say go smaller. I am right on the border between large and xtra large so not quite sure what to do and I dont want to have to return it from NZ as it will be too expensive. I am 183cm tall 85kg and chest size is 109cm. Anyone around the same size out there that can give me some idea what would be best. Been sitting at home for 5 weeks now looking as I have a broken hip after a near miss with a car biking home. Hence the jacket purchase. Cheers Andy

I'm the same - I have really broad shoulders, with a 42" chest - teetering between Large and XLarge depending on brands.
I tried both - and they both fit ok - it all depends on your build, how many layers you use and how you want to look.
As an MTBer, all of my stuff is pretty baggy, so I have gone for the XL - it's a little long in the arms, but not to the extent that it hampers riding, or that anyone else notices. I can also wear light body armour underneath.
I would have gone for the Large if I was a lycra-clad roadie.
