Small Sizes

Hey, I need some help. I'm a 16 year old asian male, and I'm a little on the small size. I'm looking for some new snow pants, but it's hard for me to find pants that fit right. Size wise, I'm probably around 5"4'~5' tall. My waist is around 29 inches if I hold the tape tightly, and around 30-31 inches for a comfortable fit. My chest measurements are about 34 inches, and my inseam (my crotch seam to the bottom of my foot) is 29 inches.

Right now, I'm using these snow pants that I got from a friend around 4-5 years ago, and he used them for 4-5 years too, so these pants are probably close to 10 years old. They pretty much aren't waterproof anymore. I think they're about a Youth 18.

I've gone to a couple places around my house including multiple department sports stores, and one actual snowboarding shop around my house, and I can't seem to find anything that fits right. At the snowboarding shop, I tried on some Burton x-small and small pants (not sure which), and they all seemed too big. I tried looking around online, and according to Burton's website, their x-small pants would be perfect, but I can't seem to find a x-small that isn't sold out, and I'm worried cause they didn't fit right in the store. I've looked a couple other places, but I can't find one that seems right.

I'm looking for pants probably in the $100-$200 range, preferably a red, yellow, blue, or a tan color (preferably not too dark, and not obnoxiously bright). I like my pants to fit well, not tight and not too baggy. Waterproof and breathable don't need to be extremely high. Most the places I go to aren't frigid conditions or anything. It doesn't matter to me whether they are men's pants or youth pants as long as they fit.

Thanks for the help.

It's prolly best for u to buy online.
North Face has sizes (S,M,L) in a short cut..
If u go with Burton get the XS & rock them a lil baggy.. it's not that horrible.. the S will def be big & u'll need them hemmed

you can look at holdens since they run a little smaller than normal brands and this year i hear they arent as slim. they can be a bit pricey though. im around you size except maybe an inch taller and i have a 30 waist and i wear special blend's revolver line in size small and its a perfect fit. right between slim and baggy, maybe a little on the slim side

I would suggest going to an online retailer and buy all brands in the size that you think will fit you (that your local shop does not have). Try them on and return the ones that dont fit. Only downside is the return fee. Spyder makes some slim pants too, might want to check those out.
