theprocess On the main topic on AK fit, it looks like burton went back to a looser fit for 2013/14. According to burton between "traditional" and "loose". For 2012/13 the line was right at "traditional".

ecocar Hi to everyone,
I se that it is a old post but I try anyway.

I am 5.75 feet and 150 lbs. I am looking at Burton AK Jacket like Cyclic or Freebird.
I like to dress normal, not large and under the jacket I will use multiple layers.
What do you suggest? M or S size?

thanks a lot!

I'm 5'10" 155lbs and just bought the 2013 Stagger Jacket in Medium. Plenty of room for layering.

hktrdr Hi, reviving this thread with another question about sizing. Details:
  • Guy, 5'9", ~150lbs.
  • Looking at the Stagger jacket.
  • Will definitely want to layer - I know it is somewhat insulated, but I tend to get cold.

Should I go for the medium or the small?
FWIW, I have the Indecent Exposure from a couple of years ago in medium and it fits pretty well - generous, but not overly baggy. How would the Stagger compare?

Thanks for the info. I'll for for the stagger pants.

Sassicaia What I absolutely hate about the 2013 line of AK pants and jackets are the older zipper styles they went to. That was a huge mistake and step back, and Im certainly happy i over bought last years stuff. Not only does it look cheaper, but the result of the stiff zipper last year helped the jacket keep a really nice shape.

Huge mistake in going back IMO.

It was across the whole AK line. If you ended up being a Large last year, you’d be a Large in any other AK pant.
Hope this info was helpful, let me know if you need me to locate a shop near you that carries AK gear. That way you could try them on to be sure.
Thanks dude, talk to you soon!

Sassicaia 2013 cyclic pants fit the same as the the 2012. The large size in the down AK Insulator is definitely smaller this year then last. I would say it feels almost like a full size small. Perhaps that says something about all their jackets?

I found the "large" last year in jackets was very large. Im 6 feet 185 and large was noticeably to big.
