Temperatures tested: 0 to -20
Model: Beaver Fur
Saga's jacket is pretty true to the size chart, it was slightly less baggy as I expected, but the length on the large was perfect for someone my size. The inside material was comfortable and warm, and the sleeve length was good. If you ever here someone complain about Saga's pockets, they must be insane. The jacket has enough pockets to store you and your uncles stuff. It was actually really convenient having so many pockets, because you can separate your stuff, and whenever you want something, you do not have to dig through other items. One item per pocket.
The only major complaint I had about the fit of the jacket was the cuff was barely adjustable. I tested the jacket along with the saga mitt: (http://www.newschoolers.com/reviews/3163/The-Mitten) and it was really tough to tuck in the cuff of the mitten into the cuff of the jacket. I could literally waste 2 minutes trying to get it in.

The waterproofing has held up well, skied in a little bit of rain and I did not get wet through the jacket, for average hard pack skiing and snowboarding no water is going to be getting in. The main spot that got wet was again the cuffs, the thumb hole liner would end up pretty soaked by the end of the day and you will have to make sure you fully "unbunch" the sleeves while drying or they wont be dry by the morning. In terms of warmth, it is a 2L, so I wasn't expecting it to be super warmth, but with a sweater under I could cruise -15 without a problem, as it got closer to -20 it definitely got colder, started to notice the wind coming through it a lot more then.
