Default Outerwear for shorter/slimmer riders

Iím in a real big debacle here, I need a new jacket. Well I donít really need one but mine is getting pretty cruddyÖ

Anyways I am 5í4 about 130 pounds and I do prefer a bit more slimmer cut on pants and jackets. I just bought the burton destro pants a month or two ago and love them. Very slim, yet I got a size up so they arenít super tight. Probably the best pants Iíve owned fit and comfort wise.

Now comes the jacket. I have been riding a Burton Ronin Jacket (XS Mens) for years and donít get me wrong it fits good, but itís starting to wear out and over the years I put on 10 pounds so itís a little smaller than before.

Literally 10 min ago I received my 686 smarty XS (all access fit I know) but was thinking the XS would be a bit more forgiving.

Are there any riders around my same height and size that wear a good fitting jacket that doesnít look like I have a moo moo on haha?

I am a huge fan of volcom carbon's they are slim without being skinny and hold up amazingly well. I also own two shells.

Second vote for Volcom. I have their L Gore-Tex pant (note, L is the model and the not the size) and it is comfortable without being too slim. Length is about average, although since I am tall I wouldn't mind if it was slightly longer.

Take a look at alpine, mountaineering specific jackets and pants. The are usually trimmer and better fitting. I'm the same size as you.
