I'm a big guy. Former rugby player, the whole nine yards. I'd be lying if I said I was in super shape, but I do run, hike and weight train, so I'm in sufficiently good shape to ski aggressively all day.
Here's my challenge. Because I do ski aggressively, both in bounds and, occasionally, backcountry, I want gear that's got all the technical features to stay comfortable all day. Unfortunately, the majority of technical ski wear I've found is sized for teenagers. I have, for instance, a 48" waist and a 52" chest. I recently saw a great bib that came in a 3X. Good news, right? No. Their definition of 3X was a 40" waist!
I've been using a mix of snowmobile and hunting gear that does some of what I want, but most of it is either designed for standing (hunting gear) or is much too warm for an active skier (snowmobile gear).
My challenge is with both pants/bibs and shells.
Anyone have any experience, advice, suggestions?
(PS - Even at my most recent pre-injury size, I was rocking a 44" waist at 19% body fat. I really am that "big guy".)
