They're pretty much amazing. I've had mine for over a year and skied over 60 days in it last year. It's still perfectly waterproof and the color still looks the same. Best jacket I've ever owned by far.
From what I've been told it ranges between 250 and 350 depends on the options you get. But super amazing jackets. Every one that I've seen him make has only gotten even better. We live in the same town and I kicked it with him the other day checked out a whole new set of zipper colors he got they all look so amazing.
On 10/27/11 many brave souls made a huge sacrifice for the betterment of Newschoolers as a whole. These brave Newschoolers came together as one and posted pornographic material in the thread known as "yoga pants, lets do it right this time" The banhammer came down on them, but these brave souls will never be forgotten(for the brief 3 days that they are gone?) Heroes live forever, but legends never die.
I ordered one from him. The photo is further up the page, the red one with white zippers and all my seams are taped and its rated above 20k waterproof rating. It just depends on what you want to pay and what fabric you choose. But yes seam tape is an option when you order.
This. I was looking into a camo one in the summer, and they were rated at 12k, so it depends on the fabric you choose. Nick is a legit guy, super helpful and friendly, shame i couldn't afford the jacket at the time.
