Default High End Streamlined Snowboard Jacket?

Hey everyone, looking to get a less baggy snowboard jacket that can handle any conditions, while still having flexibility for grabs/other maneuvres. Been looking at Arc'teryx but haven't done all that much research yet. Any other brands/models you can recommended looking into? Thanks.

look for slim fit or tailor fit jacket not baggy. All companies have different cuts to their jackets.

Also try ski jacket more conservative then snowboard jackets

Not really though... still a bigger baggy snowboard jacket compared to skier stuff.

I think Patagonia is a nice medium in the baggy department. Arcteryx definitely makes super form fitting stuff if that is what you are looking for.

Look for jackets without insulation. Most gore-tex pro shells will be thin, lightweight and usually less baggy.
