Default Snowboard jackets....sleeve too long?

I am fairly new to snowboarding and am pretty excited about the sport. I decided to order a snowboard jacket for next season. I usually wear medium in jackets so I ordered a medium Nomis jacket. I noticed that the shoulder fits fine but the sleeves are a bit long cover down to my fingers. Is this normal for snowboard fit?

I would say yes, you want some extra length so when your arms bend, the sleeves dont rise up above the gloves.
I am 5'7 and I normally wear small.
It also depends on the fit. Some are longer more baggy, some are shorter.

You're going to appreciate the longer sleeves when they don't ride up your arm while strapping in/out all the time.

Personally, I won't buy a jacket for riding unless the sleeves go down quite a bit past my wrists when I'm standing with my arms just down by my side. If they don't, I know they'll be riding up my arms all the time and I can't stand that. I also check the sleeves by crossing my arms, if they ride up, forget it.

The problem I have is that the sleeve runs down to the tip of my fingers. IS that too long?

Personal preference I say. Ask yourself this question, besides the look - do the longer sleeves have any negative effect on performance of the garment? If not, who cares.

I didn't mention this the first time, but if you ever wear the jacket with a pack - the longer sleeves will appreciated even more IMO.

As a new snowboarder, I'd worry more about not falling than the length of your jacket

You'll be fine- go out and enjoy

thanks for the reply guys. I am going to return the jacket. I just do not want to have the oversized look.

...wait til ur tits deep and digging/swiming out. There are several reasons for sb jackets being oversized and with longer sleeves.
