Good luck with that.

I have trouble, because I'm small- but at least there are child sizes... You may be screwed.

So... just how big are you?

I am a portly fellow myself..........your best bet as far as brand of gear, imho, is fieldsheer. I have a fieldsheer leather jacket and my track leathers are also fieldsheer. Very durable and they tend to be cut in a wide person friendly manner!! Just my .02
And I believe Patrick is a Fieldsheer dealer, so.............yeah

I crashed in a pair of fieldsheer leathers that had atleast 2 or 3 other crashes already and they held up fine.
Also had a low speed crash on the street with my fieldsheer jacket. Put a hole in my jeans, but the jacket held up just fine. No busted seems or zippers.
