Only thing that I find kind of weird is the surround sound collar thing it has. I don't know what kind of speakers you can put in the hood, so I wouldn't even know how to use it.
Waterproofing is top notch. I got sprayed with a hose and stayed toasty :). Also, the setup of the skullcandy remote of the sleeve is great. Nice big rubber buttons, easy to punch with even the thickest of mittens.
Plain and simple, smoking hot. Every person I have been around, ski related or not, loved the design.
I got it for 170, and give how waterproof it is, and the sound system it serves up, I think it was well worth it. Its a solid EC jacket.
I got it in large, the fit is perfect for the most part, its baggy in all the right places. The only qualm I have is because I have lanky arms it doesn't 100% properly fit them. Like there are those little hooks on the inside cuff you can put around you thumb to keep the sleeves long and when I use them it feels a little tight. I think if I got it bigger it would of looked wayyyy too baggy though.
