A fabulous ski jacket. A bit stiff, and the sizing was an issue (ended up with a size too big - see service comments) but other than that a really superb bad weather jacket. Wore it skiing and it kept me dry and warm. It could do a sleeve pocket.

Material not as thick as I expected, but I'm hoping Descente's 'HeatFlex' technology is just super-light and super-warm. Being July, it will be some time before I'll be able to hit the slopes and test its warmth. Stylish design, however, with plenty of well-placed pockets, great color (Deep Sea Blue), and feels true to size (I'm 5'3", size 6). The collar feels a bit stiffer than I would like, but I'm hoping with use it'll relax a little. Jacket length is perfect for my preference (covers most of posterior, which'll help keep snow out).

This is a really good looking jacket. I wear a size small or a 6. I sent this jacket back because it was a bit longer than I personally want when I ski. Not much but just enough to make me order one slightly shorter (Descente, but a different style). For the average person the length is probably fine (29"). The jacket is great looking and has plenty of pockets.
