I recommend this jacket for people who are looking for a down filled jacket that's sick for skiing.
The jacket's down insulation is really warm, the pit vents cool you down, the hood keeps your head cozy, and it has a sufficient amount of pockets (1 music, 1 large internal, 1 "napoleon", and 2 handwarmer pockets). I don't really like the wrist gaitors because it hurs the webbing between my thumb and index finger when I put gloves on. This is porbably because my arms might be a bit longer than average.
I've never been wet in this jacket before, but when it was snowing pretty wet snow, I could see the jacket getting soak (didn't penetrate all the way through) and not letting the water bead off.
The only time I've been actually cold in this was when I forgot to zip up my pit zips. totally my fault.
Design's alright.. don't like puffy-ish jackets but it's what down jackets look like (although it's not as puffy as those huge casual down jackets). Not feeling the two cross (army medic theme?) patches on each shoulder. They should've just put siver logos. Pretty simple looking jacket overall.
I got it at a good value, traded gloves + under $45 for these. wakeskier is a good seller.
I'm around 5'6" to 5'7", I got the medium size and it's super baggy. anything larger would have been overkill for me. I might have even been able to get away with a small, but I have no complaints and am satisfied with the jacket size I have now
I live on the EC and this was the perfect jacket. if it was raining, snowing, or sunny this jacket was great. the pit vents are a great feature for when its warm and the insulation kept me warm for the coldest temperatures.
i regreted getting it in the rust/grey color, but it was still a solid jacket. didnt rip and it has one of the best hoods around. wear it on a long car ride and use the hood as a pillow.
I purchased this jacket off a local rep for half off. but it would be worth full price.
i bought a size large and it fit nice and baggy but not to the point where it was annoying. im 5 11 and it was the perfect size.
