These jackets are sold by chest size. Choose the size that corresponds with your chest measurement (or suit coat size if you know it). We measured these jackets in our office and found them to fit true to size. The overall cut of these jackets is relaxed so there is not a lot of taper from the chest to the waist/belly. We’ve listed some estimated max belly sizes in the chart below. If you have a bit of a belly, then just make sure that your belly size does not exceed the max belly size of the jacket you are choosing.

Our Two Cents
Nothing says “biker” more than the old Brando styled motorcycle jacket. The Caliber from River Road features an insulated liner for cold weather use, as well as zippered vents on the arms and back for the warmer months. The collar is snapped down to prevent flapping in the wind, and there are waist adjustment belts which can tighten up the bottom of the jacket. The two chest pockets are fairly small, but might be good for stashing a credit card for easy access at the pumps. In addition to the chest pockets, there are two zippered hand warmer pockets and two internal cargo pockets – so plenty of storage space. For protection, the Caliber jacket has removable EVA foam padding for the back, shoulders, and elbows.
