Hey guys,

Recently I tried to order an item from the european DC site and have it delivered to a friend who lives in Antwerp(as those damn frenchies don't deliver to the Netherlands). Order wasn't even shipped and had my money refunded.

Now I'm trying to order it from the US DC site as the european site's snow section is pretty much closed down for buying items. But as it is the US part of DC, I could use some help with sizing.

The item in question: Mens Dryden Hoodie - DC Shoes

Height: 1m93(this is 6.3/6.4)
Weight: around 69kg(152 lbs)

So the size of the L(the orange one that I want only has S or L available) as measurements go are:

Torso: 39-41 inch
Waist: 34-35 inch
Hips: 40-41,5 inch

I'm a pretty skinny guy. I measured my torso and that came to about 35 inches. Would the L be really loose on me then or be right for snowboarding?

I'm around the same size as you, just maybe a bit thinner and shorter. I wear a large US men's Columbia jacket if that helps at all. It fits me rather well and the powder skirt isn't loose at all. The torso part is a bit roomy, but it doesn't affect the warmpth of the jacket in any significant way. I hope I was helpful.

At your height/weight a brand that has medium tall sizes would be optimal. Large will be very roomy and a regular medium might be too short.

Well, some other people said that the small would fit me. The orange one doesn't have a medium anymore, but the blue version still has it. I like the orange one more, but if it won't fit me, I'll take the blue one.

I'd really have to get the right size on the first try, as it's kind of a pain to return it if it isn't right. I'm having it shipped to a friend in Atlanta who then ships it to me. Returning it will be a lot harder, I think.

Edit: I just looked at my Burton Poacher jacket which seems to be a small one. Maybe I should go with that?
