O'Neill was kind enough to hook me up with two jackets this winter while I waited to receive a sample of our next year's collab jacket with them, and one of them was the Seb Toots Premium.
I know, I know...a skier rocking a pro snowboarder's pro model jacket? Kind of lame right? Well, not really, because as we all know, snowboarders design dope jackets, and Seb is an absolute boss.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, it's time to discuss what this jacket is all about. First off, the design is stellar. It's primarily black body with grey tweed sleeves makes it look extra sleek and somewhat classy, and the burgundy waist band at the bottom gives off a nice basketball jersey type of feel.
Fit-wise, it's somewhat on the taller side (but not too tall), and slim (as opposed to most tall jackets, which tend to be wide/baggy as well), and I love the fit of this jacket so much (more so than any jacket I've ever owned to be honest) that I suggested we use the same specs for next year's O'Neill/Newschoolers collab jacket, which is what exactly we're doing.
Warmth and waterproof-wise, it rules. It's not Gore-Tex, but with a 15,000mm waterproof rating and 10,000 breathability (along with critically taped seams), it will keep you toasty and dry in any and all conditions, unless you're planning on skiing during a hurricane.
Definitely check out this and other jackets from O'Neill, and get stoked for our collab with them next year.
