Bought this "sweater", really an all mountain jacket, and ran it through its paces this week. It performed flawlessly in all conditions. One day, sun and temperate temps. Perfect. Next day, rain mixed with slush. Perfect. Next day, dumping giant fluff balls of snow. Perfect. This jacket stays warm and dry in ALL conditions. But be prepared to not wear a ton underneath this jacket as it is not needed. Personally I skied with a single, thin wool base layer and then the Vinje. No problems over heating at all. Hood works extremely well in inclement weather and is easily removed when the skies are clear. I am 6'3" and weigh 230 lbs. and bought a size up with the XXL. It is a perfect fit. My only complaint, and is really a personal preference, is that there is a lack of a Napoleon (chest) pocket on either the outside or the inside.
