        Overall

        I love this jacket. Customer service is top notch, it is as durable as any of your top end jackets, excellent waterproofing, ykk zippers (all exposed are waterproof), the main zipper is a two way zipper which I was plesently surprised with, zip off sleeves, 2 vents, 7 pockets so plenty of room to store your stuff, lyrica wrist gaitors so no snow, powder skirt, its got all the features plus more. I would highly suggest it to anyone looking at a new jacket

        Performance

        I have so far put 5 days of skiing on it and im am totally impressed by how it performs. I skied 3 days of park in it where it was above 0 degrees celcius so it was wet out and I also skied knee deep pow in it. It performed excellently in both conditions. When I first got the jacket I ran it under water for about 15 seconds and the water beaded up and rolled off. I find for it being a shell it is very warm it ( it was -10 celcius and i only had a sweater under it and I had to open the vents)It has two vents under the arms and zip off sleeves so it will be great for those hot days too. Also being a 20,000 waterproofing and breathability means you will never get wet.

        Design

        I personally love the colours of this jacket the couldnt have choosen them better. The mint colour is lighter so it really stands out without being to bright. I have gotten tons of comments on the jacket and nobody else has it. Just apon feel you can tell that they used durable high quality materials for it. I would say it is comparable if not better then my orage jacket.

        Value

        This jacket cost me $240 dollars and I would say it is worth every penny. I would pay $350 for it if I had to. Therefore you are really getting a steal on it and I would highly suggest you buy em now before they get super popular because I guarrentee in a couple years you will be seeing a lot of these jackets at your local hill.  All exposed zippers are ykk waterproof, 20,000 waterproofing and breathabilty, customer service is the best out of every company ive dealt with so I definitly think its a bang for your buck

        Fit

        I personally love the fit of this jacket it is exactly how they describe it to be "Tall and Slim". I am 5 foot 10 inches and pretty skinny and got a XL jacket. I love the fit of it it comes down to about a inch to inch and a half above my knee. My dad also tried the jacket on and he is bigger and is 5 foot 11 inches. It still looked great on him but it was a snugger fit for sure.

        Durability

        This jacket still looks brand new. I havent been able to put a whole season on it but I am confident that it will hold up for many years. All the zippers are ykk which I believe are the best zippers out there. I was going through tight trees and the branches were constantly grabbing at the jacket and i didnt have a single cut in it.  All the stiches are strong and they definitly wont be coming out any time soon.
