I wear this jacket on cold, snowy days on the slopes. Riding up the lifts in the face of freezing snow flurries I am protected and warm with this rugged jacket. The slight insulation makes it a bit bulky and not as practical for back country layering, and the attached hood adds to its overall heft. I am 6ft tall, 185lbs and the medium is perfect for layering one or two pieces under. The slight stretch in the material is a welcome plus. Over all, a quality piece of gear I anticipate to wear for several seasons on the slopes.

Unfortunately I returned the jacket since the blue color displayed on the website does not match the real thing at all. The real color comes on dull side and also the fitting feels weird where chest and overall length feels good but sleeves run too long. Overall a good jacket if you are ok with a different color than you see on the display and the fit is ok on you.

I had to send this one back unfortunately. It looked like good build quality and felt good, but the fit was really weird. I am 6'-3", 200. The chest seemed to be about 4 inches bigger than I am used to, while the sleeves were the correct length. The neck was also very long and high, and wasn't comfortable. i liked the color, and everything else seemed fine, but it didn't take me long to realize this wasn't the jacket for me.
