Saying 42.5 inches isn't tall is retarded dude hahaha, Im wearing a 4XL jacket right now, im 6'3 and a pretty big dude and it's a bout an inch or two above my knees, quality is pretty good, its a smoother material, haven't skied pow or anything in it yet, but it seems decent. Width wise, like I said, I am a bigger dude so its good on me, one complaint (minor one) there isn't really a cuff, like on other jacket, it has a velcro cinch and everything, just no stitching, it just kindof ends, not a huge deal though. Zippers are high qaulity, seems are well taped, jacket looks nice, and definately comparable to saga, first drop, and other park oriented companies. It is insulated, and decently warm, it's about 18 degrees in Tahoe right now and I am comfortable outside. There are hand gaiters that are comfortable and funtional, but seem to be stitched an constructed not as good as they could have been. The powder skirt is somewhat low on the jacket, but I am tall so it's just about right for me. Arm vents are well constructed but could be bigger or the size of the jacket, not a huge deal. Plenty of pockets for everything you need, Ipod, pass, and random shit. Inner zipper stash pocket is cool.
All in all I am really happy with it. Minor complaints about stupid shit, nothing too substantial. Stoked for the season to see how it holds up in the wet ass sierra snow, I would say pull the trigger on buying it, I am very satisfied thus far. Like I said, the 4XL really is huge, but if your looking for somthing taller than saga and first drop, do it up!
Hope this helped!
