Soft shell jacket for a slender 6'5" guy that doesn't fit like a garbage bag?

I lost my favorite jacket, an REI One soft shell that I had for six or seven years. It was an XL and fit pretty well for not being a tall size; the sleeves were long enough and it wasn't too baggy in the torso, though I did have to use the drawcords a bit at the hem. I used it with layers for hiking and as my daily jacket around town during chilly, drizzly Central Valley winter days. No hood, and a breast pocket is a bonus.
Any recommendations for a good soft shell that fits tall, slender fellas and isn't baggy? Do any companies even make tall soft shells? I'd like to not spend more than $150, but can if it's worth it. (I hear Arc'teryx is probably worth it, but it's too rich for my blood.) Thanks!
