Greetings.

Was wondering if anyone has a Burton AK 2L Stagger jacket? I am 5'10 160 Lbs, would a Medium be too large for me? The reason I ask is because I bought some other Burton jacket last year, I don't remember the name exactly but the medium was so huge on me.

I'm thinking if I should order a small instead of a medium.

Thanks

The AK series has a bit more of a technical fit. I'm 6'-1"/185lbs and wore a large last year. Good fit, not too baggy, but the sleeves were a bit short (I have long ass arms). A medium would probably fit you perfectly.

I'm 5'6" 170lbs and medium AK jackets fit nice and loose.

I have last years AK Stagger, and I originally ordered the Medium (5'6", 155lbs) and it was HUGE. Changed it out for a small and it fits pretty well, comfortably loose.

You being 5'10" - you might want the medium, but it depends on how loose/long you like to wear your jackets.

Go to a shop and try it on.

I got the true black from backcountry. Spent way too much or stuff this season. New Oakley goggles, new burton cargos, new board.
Now that I think about it maybe should have gotten the ak 2l pants to match.

Im not huge on matching pants to jackets, but ill admit I like it in the AK series.

Did you make custom oakley goggles? I made some at the start of the season.

5'8" and 180lbs. I have a Large Stagger jacket. It fits loose with perfect length sleeves. I tried a medium and it was too tight for me and too short of sleeves.

I'm 5'10" and 185lbs. The large seemed to fit me the best although slightly too long in the sleeves for my personal taste, but not a huge deal with under gloves and tightening the cuffs. I got it in the smurf plaid.

Odd, tried on a small today and it seems to fit well. Is it normal to wear it one size bigger? I mean I know people wear stuff underneath but still... My north face medium is pretty much the same size as the stagger small.

I wouldn't say it's the norm to wear a size bigger, however you will definitely see people wearing oversized jackets and pants. Some do it for comfort, some do it for the look, and various other reasons. It just comes down to personal preference like most things.

A medium fit pretty well for me everywhere except the shoulders causing me to size up.

strange. I ordered a large stagger jacket blindly and Im going to return it as soon as it arrives in the mail because today I went to store and tried on a medium in a different color out of curiosity and it fit great. Im 5'11 185 lbs.

I'm 5'10 and 160-165 ish and small seems good on me. It's only a little bigger but hopefully with the extra layers it won't become too tight. I'm a sweater anyway, usually I don't really wear too many layers.

I've been looking high and low for one of these in a size Med. in the Smurf Measurement Plaid with no luck. Anyone know of a shop that may have them. I tried Burton but the shops they recommended were sold out.

I have the black pants and can find the Stagger jacket in black but that is WAY too matchy for my tastes. I've considered the LZ Down jacket but that shit will be hot for California.

Any ideas?

There is one here : http://store.thinkempire.com/en/item.php?catid=58&subcatid=59&brandprefix=bur&pos=2&id=87804&options[color]=SMURF+MEASUREMENT+PLAID but they don't ship to the U.S. If you really want it I could work something out with you...

Damn... good looking out. The price seems kinda high though? Is gear marked up that much in Canada?

nm... I just saw the prices on Burton's Canadian site. You guys get raped up there.
yes shit is way expensive up here even though our dollar has been pretty much on par for the last 2 years

i am 6'2' 180 and a medium in the AK cyclic jacket is a bit big on me but ok
size 41 chest.

You want to have some room in these shells as there is no insulation on them at all.
