        Performance

        9.5/10

        Overall I absolutely love this jacket.

        1. It keeps me very warm
        2. All of the pockets are right where you want them, and one even includes a hole for your headphones to slide through so they are not everywhere.
        3. Waterproofing is excellent - I have never been wet from a rainy/snowy day
        4. The hood is huge! and I love it because I finally have a hood that will fit over my helmet on a rainy and/or wet and snowy day!

        Design

        10/10

        1. Pockets are where they should be
        2. Synch at bottom WORKS - does not slip and loosen like my old FD jacket
        3. Very good texture and feel of materials - feels tough and not cheap
        4. Front zipper does not get stuck/broken.

        Simply, this jacket works the way you want it to.

        Value

        9/10

        I think that everything in todays world is overpriced but I paid 180 dollars on amazon for this jacket and I think that is a very good price for a great jacket!

        The price is now cheaper as well.

        Fit

        10/10

        I simply love the fit of this jacket. I got a large and I am about 5'11 and with the bottom as loose as it will go, it goes to just above my knee. I wear it with the bottom synched up and it fits right at my thighs and I love it. Perfect length and width. I have also found that this jacket is not to wide as well. Perfect combo of width and length.

        Durability

        10/10

        I have used it for about 20 skiing days and I have no tears, rips, cuts etc... and I ski fairly hard. I have stains from rust and dirt but any jacket will get that.
