Joe Rocket Phoenix for big guys

I am 6'2 and about 300 pds at them moment. I am looking for a less expensive jacket for the short term because I am actively losing weight pretty fast. I had one of the first gen Phoenix's years ago as a 2X and it was huge. I am wondering if any bigger guys have had experience with the newer ones that go up to 5X. I am thinking of picking up the 3X which will probably be a little tight but not for long. I havent seen any locally in the larger sizes to try so I just seeing if there are any opinions here.

I'm roughly your size and I wear a 3X Moab jacket, which is a 3/4-length jacket. My Fieldsheer mesh jacket, which is slightly shorter, is a 4X but they fit about the same.

I have to buy all my gear online because there are no shops around here. I can't really remember which ones they are, but some places will let you do a one-time free return to exchange the same item for a different size and that's a nice feature to look for when you're choosing a vendor.

Ive got a 52" chest and ape arms. The 3X is snug,4x is perfect. I love JR as it seems to be built for bigger taller frames.
just my 2 watts worth.
