Overall it is a very nice jacket. The color is great, the style is nice, the size is awesome. If I could change it, I would add zip off sleeves (I know, you probably just think it's a fad but it is very useful), make the hood permanently attached, put a magnet to hold the hood down, add a pass pocket, make some of the pockets non fleece lined (don't really want to use a fleece lined pocket for a snack pocket), changed the material and cinch up the pow skirt, and maybe make it a little taller for the bagginess/ make it a little less baggy for the length.
I am very happy with this jacket, it looks great and I haven't seen m,any other people with it. Great alternative to Saga/ FD / LDC / Orage, I would rate it in the same category as those.
I have skied in this jacket in rain and snow and everything in between. I have never gotten wet. I believe it is 10k / 10k. It is also a very warm jacket, but with plenty of ventilation for those warm afternoons.
I would like it to be a little taller, but it fits very nicely. There are tons of pockets. I love the cellphone / ipod pocket that is on the outside with an insert for headphones. It gets covered by the flap over the zipper, which has magnets to hold it down (best idea ever, it was one of the main factors for buying the jacket actually). The pow skirt is not tight enough, that is the only gripe. I can sew that up myself, but it's definitely made for someone with more girth than me. It also has huge armpit vents which work wonders. Hobo cuffs can also be found, which is a necessity on jackets, I don't know why companies make jackets without them. There aren't very many internal pockets, but with the abundance of external, you should be able to find a place to put everything you have. It has a removable hood, which I wouldn't choose to remove, but that is me. The color is very vibrant, I love it. Tall tees also layer very nicely for that extra swag.
I got it for $200, retails for about $250 I think. It's not really that expensive compared to competitors. I think it was worth it. You get many features in the jacket so it is decently priced.
I have a 2xl, and it fits nice and big. The zipper length is 34 inches I believe, so it is a nice length. It is not a very slim fit jacket, its big and steezy. I feel like Ahmet when I am wearing it, thus it is also proper for open coat steeze if that is your swag. Very roomy.
I have fallen on plenty of rails, hit many tree branches, and only have stains. No rips, no tears, no burns. The jacket is holding up very nicely. I did get a ton of crap on the front from hitting some small brush in the trees, and it just wiped right off. The only part of the jacket I don't like is the pow skirt, not only is it too wide, but the material feels plasticky. Won't really make a difference, I just don't like the feel of it.
