I don't even know what to say... if you don't love this jacket without reading this review then GTFO. The sessions newschoolers jacket is the tallest, brightest, and most awesome jacket ever made. Its too bad that there isn't a specific matching pant to meet the jackets awesomeness... but hey... life sucks and then you die.
Vest mode makes this jacket really fantastic when its springtime and you still want to rock it tall as fuck, yet let the hoodie show through. Suggest letting a superthug do the talking underneath.
Bright colours and edgy styling make this jacket stand out. It was designed with style in mind, and to let everybody know that you are an NSer.
The inner fabric is silky smooth and gives the jacket a luxurious feel. The shell is made 15000mm waterproof polyester to keep you cozy an dry.
The quality of the fabric and stiching is excellent, there are plenty of pockets and a dedicated one for your favourite music player. However I do wish there was a large goggle pocket on the inside.
The lining is plenty warm, however you may want an extra layer on really cold east coast days. The sleeves are complete removable to allow you to wear this jacket in spring as a vest. Since the arms remove completely, there is no snow mesh if you want to open the underarm zippers for ventilation.
Overall, it's an excellent garmet for skiing in style!
It's here! We're super excited to unleash the Sessions/Newschoolers jacket this winter that we've been secretly collaborating on for the past two years, and being that I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one last winter, here's a look at what you can expect if you're smart enough to pick one up for yourself before they're all gone...
One of the best features on this coat is the smooth, silk-like material throughout the inside of the coat, which I was pleasantly surprised by and helped make it (in all honesty) one of the most comfortable jackets I've ever owned. And as far as the look of it goes, we spent months and months behind closed doors asking some of skiing's top athletes and our most loyal members which color scheme they liked the best, and in the end (based on their input) we went with the red, yellow and black, along with a small Newschoolers logo on the left sleeve and big one on the right hip, so you can loudly and proudly display your love for the best skiing website in the world on the hill like never before.
We knew you would want it...so we worked with Sessions to make this a tall fitting jacket. I wore the XL last year and it was a bit taller than I was expecting and liked (I'm 5'9 and it came to just above my knees), as I'm not big on the tall steeze, but for all of you out there who are, this is the jacket for you. The XL also fits a touch on the wider size, but not to the point that you'll look like a blimp instead of a pimp.
This jacket can take as much abuse as people get in our forums, and just like they do, it will keep coming back for more ;)
