Lady's jacket

I want to buy my girlfriend a jacket for her birthday so she can ride around on the back of my bike. Any suggestions? I'm not sure what size to buy. She's five foot four, medium build with rather large...ummm...well, you know what I mean. It's the off-season here so I'll probably look for a deal locally. Most of the salespeople around here are really, really, really stupid so I appreciate any advice.

Thanks

+1 on New Enough. They have good prices, plus they usually have very helpful info on sizing.

I'm a little late on this one, but being a chick myself, I can tell you my favorite riding jacket (and I've been through several ranging from Joe Rocket to Cortech to Firstgear) for moderate to warm weather is my Icon Merc jacket. The fit is is fantastic and the armor is stout (except for the back protector) without making me look like a line backer (I know, I know...but us motorcycle gals worry about these sorts of things...)
