Nice jacket but...

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Urbanwarrior from Boston, MA on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Overall, it is a nice jacket. My wife has not worn it outside in cold weather so not sure if it will keep her warm or not. The main thing I didn't like is that the inner liner jacket is only attached to the shell by loops at the collar and the cuffs. My wife would have preferred the liner to be zipped to the shell along the front of the jacket. I ordered a medium for my wife who is 5' 7" and 125 lbs and usually wears a size 4 or 6. She was hoping to have a little extra room to layer a heavy sweater underneath as she tends to get cold. Unfortunately, this jacket is more fitted so she would only be able to wear a light to medium sweater. Probably would have needed to order the large size to allow for layering. The sleeves also seem pretty long. Since this jacket is designed for skiing/snowboarding, the liner has a straight outer-cuff which extends beyond the already too-long sleeves of the jacket. The outer-cuff can then be a nuisance because it gets in the way of your palms when you are not wearing gloves. I would recommend this jacket if you have very long arms, want the versatility of a separate liner and shell, and don't mind zipping up both the inner and other jacket everytime to stay warm. Too bad, I really wanted to like this jacket but it is going back.
