I'm thinking about buying my brother an Altura Night Vision Jacket for his birthday but I'm really confused about what size to order (need to do present by post!). He spends a bit too much time in the gym so he's around 5ft10", has a 30" waist but a 44" chest. Looking at the Altura sizing guide this would put him in an XL jacket. Does this sound right?

A life lived in fear is a life half lived.

    Yep, I'd say 44" chest would be an XL. Being that shape with a disproportionate chest, his arms might be too short for the sleeves but it's not too much bother to bunch the sleeves up a bit. I'd imagine the waist could be tightened with a cord at the bottom of the jacket.

    I have one of these in L im a 42" chest, 36" waist and 6ft and it has draw string cord on the bottom of the jacket - if you buy from your LBS they should swap it for a L if the XL is to big so long as you leave the tags attached but ask them first!
