Slim fit/Tailor fit Jacket?

Hey guys and girls,

I'm not to good in the jacket department so I'm looking for a slim fit jacket with some length to it. Something I can take on the hill on a warmer day and use it on the streets. Doesn't really matter if it's a shell or not. Post up whatever you know of and i'll take a look at it.

I found this Thieves Jacket | Cappel Snowboard Jackets | Ride Snowboards 2011-2012
Seems like it's a more tailor fit. Looking for stuff like that.

I'm 6',1" if that helps. Thanks!

Hi,

Have you checked out Holden?

Also, L1 might have something you're looking for.

I'll second people's thoughts on Holden. I'm 6' and 170 lbs. and Holden jackets fit perfectly.

This drives me crazy on all kinds of tops (jackets, shirts, sweaters, etc).

I have a 40" chest and a 31" waist.

My chest puts me in a medium and my waist puts me in a small with just about every company. If I go medium the chest fits good but my waist is way to baggy. If I go small my chest is way too tight.

I wish companies would start making a more athletic tailored fit.

i have the thieves jacket. i really like it. i was unsure about getting a slim fit jacket and how i would look in it (i am 6'1' 165) but i have received a great many compliments on it and i havent seen anyone else with anyone remotely similar. i have also worn it out for things other than snowboarding and it looks rad as a street jacket. any other question let me know.

Backcountry.com's house brand stoic makes slim fit jackets that have some really good tech in them. And they aren't ridiculously priced either. I've had the bombshell for 2 years and really like it.

Id look at ski jacket brands. They are much more tailored then most boarding jackets. Spyder makes nice stiff, and so does Toni Sailer (although pricey).

Does anyone have any idea how thick is the Pace jacket from Holden? Is it just a shell or does it have some insulation? Im looking at a great deal online...
