We shopped for our 16 year old son for snowboard coat who is 5'11" and wears a 29" waist in jean,there is your visual. He conditions for basketball so he is very fit. I loved the jacket right away when it came, looks very well made. The red is bright, but not jumping off the coat. I was surprised by all the functions (MP3 pocket, ski lift pouch, etc) it offered, so that is what drew me to it. Heavy, but not bulky and will allow layering. The jacket fits his frame nicely however he feels the sleeves are just a tad too long. With that said, he feels like a small mens would be better, but I hope length is not sacrificed because he is no small fry. We ordered one today so it will be in time for our ski outing, but are keeping the original one for now in case the re-order is too short in arms. Otherwise, Good buy Dogfunk!
