Jacket/pants size question.

Hi, everyone. Just getting into snowboarding. Using steepandcheap, tramdock and WM to get my gear. Getting a little bit confused with pants/jackets sizes.
I'm 5'10", 168 lbs.
chest: 41-42
waist: 35
inseam(measured good fitting jeans): 31
sleeve(measured good fitting leather jacket from the middle of the back to the wrist): 32

Some of these measures qualify for large(L) size, and rest of them for medium(M)(different brands vary a little). So, what do you guys thing I should be getting? Medium or Large? I also like well fitted clothing and not a big fan of baggy loose style.
Thank you.

The measurements they list are all over the place. Some are actual garment measurements, some are body measurements.

Your best bet is to go to your local snow shop and try on a bunch of different companies stuff if you can. I go to the big box stores so I don't feel as guilty about supporting my local shop, which I reccomend if you can afford it.

They all fit a little different. I'm about the same size as you, 5'11'' 175lbs, 34x32 and I wear a Med burton and I like their Sig fit stuff, not to baggy, not to tight. Be aware that a lot of the stuff now is fitting baggier and bigger. My burton pants from 8 years ago in large are almost the same size as today's mediums. You might check out some "slim fit" stuff from other companies like holden or special blend's revolver series.

I would say if you can't try stuff on, go with a medium. Those are all Backcountry.com affiliates and their return policies are pretty exceptional. Just costs you the return shipping.

Thank you for detailed answer. Will go and try something at retail stores first.
