My chest measures 48" around, just under my armpits and my XXL Precip jacket-waterproof (for men) fits comfortably over a shirt., and is still comfortable over a light fleece vest. I measured my Precip in the same area and I got 53" just under the armpits.

I can't answer this specifically, but I found mine to run a bit small compared to other brands. Although I usually wear a medium, I found the large to fit perfectly well.

50-53 is correct. I can fit a down vest, sweatshirt, and two other layers under it comfortably.

Wish I could answer you're question Scott but I ordered a medium and the sizing chart was correct for the medium. You'll have to ask Sierra about the 2xl sizing chart.

I don't have a tape measure. All I can tell you is this: I'm a fat boy, with moobs; I still have plenty of room in this thing, across the chest, even when completely zippered. I would probably err on the larger 50-53. Hope that helps ;)
