Looking for LARGE mesh jacket

Since most wingers enjoy riding to eat, I can't be the only one having issues. I am 6'2 and around 315 pounds. Was wearing a First gear mesh 4xl last year. This year she a little tight. Can't seem to find and 5xl jackets that are truly a 5xl. I can fit in a 4xl Joe Rocket but do not care for zippers on the sleeves.
I have tried 4xl in Tourmaster, Olympia and others. At this point the cost is not an option.
Does anyone know where I can get a larger jacket?

Motoport custom makes jackets to fit, but they are expensive. IMHO they are well worth the money.

And, check Aerostich. They build their gear but offer "inserts" to make them larger.

Harley dealers have 5XL jackets, but of course it will say "Harley-Davidson". Cycle Gear has a few 5XL Bilt jackets, but they will probably have to order them in for you.

Thanks for the comments. Found Joe Rocket bad a 5xl and way to big. Ordered a 4xl and a little big. Will try a 3xl. Funny had different the sizes run with different manufacturers.

I was at the Cycle Gear storing Indy yesterday and they had 1 5X mesh on the rack. It was a black and white panels on sleeves. Best I remember it was $109.

I saw that also but most of the reviews stated they run very small in size. There is a store near Cleveland and I was thinking of taking a ride up there on Saturday.

I suppose you have tried going to Iron Pony and trying on jackets there. I am not so petite too. Iron Pony has one of the largest selections you'll find anywhere close. You live in Columbus so you know there store is the size of a Walmart!!!

I prefer a coat as a jacket does not cover my lower backside.
