Overall it's an awesome hoodie. It will keep you nice and dry, thus not holding you back from your on-hill shenanigans. Hitherhencetoforth, it's worth considering to buy.
I'm really impressed with the performance. It is completely wind and water proof. I have never gotten wet while wearing it. The material is a definite improvement from previous Line hoodies. Be warned that it is fairly thin so don't expect to be able to rely on solely it for warmth. It may not be as high quality as a more technical jacket but it certainly gets the job done.
By far my favorite Line hoodie as far as looks go. The green and orange stripes pleasantly pop against the sleek white. Not to mention it's super comfy. It comes with some sweet features as well: such as a new high-collar and lift ticket loop. There is no doubt that this hoodie was designed for shredding on a pair of sticks.
I'd say that $80 is an adequate price. It was 100% worth the buy.
My Influence hoodie has a nice roomy fit without being too baggy. It is has a little taller fit than your average everyday hoodie, which makes it great for skiing (and I know a lot of you here on ns like a good zipper length). I have a size xl, I'm 5'8 and it goes down a bit more than mid-thigh. I personally would rather have a size smaller, but in the end it doesn't matter that much.
So far so good. No rips or tears. Survived my treacherous washing machine as well. It does get dirty easy though. Especially when you fall sliding on those dirty rusty rails. However, I fell that this gives the hoodie a nice worn look.
