long snowboard jacket

Whats the bed snowboard jacket for a guy with a long torso and wide shoulders? I've been having a lot of trouble finding a good jacket thats long enough. My current jacket is too short right now and I've had it for about 3 years, and am sick of it riding up my back.

Check out special blend jackets. They make awesome quality stuff available in different fits. I have a goretex shell and some pants from them. I think the jacket is 'freedom' fit, which gives you extra room in the shoulders and torso. I have seen a couple of their jackets available with 6" extra length which should be plenty long for you.

I'm a similar shape, this year I bought a Cappel Revolution Jacket (made by ride). It's nice and long, the powder skirt sits right down under my ass so it doesn't ride up. I like it, best jacket I've used so far.

My last jacket was a Helly Hansen actually and I found it was a little short. Very nice quality but not quite long enough, particularly in deep powder. This is it here:

The 686 Smarty Command jacket covers your hips. More a coat than a jacket

Sounds like you need a super thug thuggie hoodie.

1+ on the 686 Smarty. I'm rocking the smarty scratch and I'm a 6'2" fellow and only need a large.
