ok i bought a ICON team merc jacket (dont laugh)
i got it cause it had CE armor and it was in stock
i needed a jacket asap so i had no choice

this jacket is way to short on me
its also a little to baggy

what jackets are snug and not to damn short
i feel like if i wreck my lower back will get rashed to shit

are alpinestars short too?

Yeah, that's how Icon is supposed to fit. It looks dope dawg!

But really, if you're tall and skinny you might look at Firstgear and Gericke, they make some models in Tall sizes. A custom jacket would be great if you can afford it. A* will fit snugger but not as well as the Gericke/Firstgear Talls I think.

if you're 5'9" go to cycle gear or dealer and try on the alpinestars stunt (leather) or t-stunt (textile). I'm about the same size as you and I have good results with these jackets as far as fit. the t-stunt medium fits me very well.

the prevention for back rash is to get a pant and matching jacket with attachment zipper. I know the gear budget is always tight but that might be something to work towards.
