Ah, it's one of the blacked out anniversary Bumfreezers... perhaps I should get in on the bidding action. I have similar stats to you - 5'9", 170-175 lbs, wear a size 40 jacket (~39" chest) and have a Bumfreezer in L. It fits nicely - I think I can squeeze a sweater underneath but definitely a vest, and it's not huge on me. I do cinch down the waist adjusts but don't think the jacket is particularly tight around the waist regardless. I think XL would be roomy but acceptable.I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on sizing with the Norwegian Rain Bumfreezer. There's one posted by Luxeswap and I'm thinking of getting in on the bidding. In short, I think it is a little big for me, just wanting to think through if it would still work and just be a little roomy.
I'm 5'9" and 185 lbs, and wear a size 40 jacket and carry a little more of that around the waist, often wear size 35 trousers. I do have a NR Moscow in a medium, and this fits pretty well. Certainly not big but not tight either.
I know the general advice is that the Moscow is a relaxed fit and if I wear the M well, the trimmer Bumfreezer size large would be ideal for me... although there's potential around the waist it could be tight.
Does anyone think the XL Bumfreezer will be too big? Or just a roomy-but-acceptable fit?
Please someone tell me it'll work ok and I should get in on the bidding
