Can't find a jacket that fits!

I had to have tried on fifty different jackets and I just can't find a good fit.I am 5'11", 115lbs, female. Tall and thin as a rail. I need a women's jacket because anything without back/side straps is just too big around the waist. Problems I'm running into are that the collar is in my throat choking me on most of the jackets I tried, and they're just too big. Even most small's are too baggy, but an x-small is too short in the sleeves. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not sure what all you've tried but here are a few Craigslist options:

I'd think twice about that Alpinestar mesh thing with external armor.
The mesh isn't sturdy enough to keep the armor in place during the violence of a crash, IMHO.
Also it isn't very durable. It starts to look frayed fairly quickly. I have one (not sure of the brand) wore it a few times. Never felt very protected.

I agree ^^, find something that fits your arm, torso, and shoulder length (you and I are the same height), and have her alter the rest. She has done one of our street jackets and her shop does an A+ job.
