Closeouts. If you normally shy away from down jackets because they look too puffy, let Fera's Jackie down ski jacket change your mind! Slimming vertical side quilting keeps the 550 fill power down from bulking up your frame.

For starters my jacket did not have the "bling" one reviewer noted (not pasted diamonds you see on the grey in the picture?). I wear like a size medium in tops or like 8-10 usually, have an athletic build (I'm about 5'7 150lbs) and the size 12 (I opted to go for that for a ski jacket) I felt fits well and could allow more room for like a thick sweater. I love the collar on this thing as it does block out the wind. It's just a nice jacket, I got the red which is not a flashy red. I have worn it in the elements but not skiing but feel it'll do well as I telemark. I am very happy with my purchase.

I absolutely love this jacket. This review is mainly about the fit because I have not worn it yet on the slopes so can't comment on the warmth performance. However, I am 5'10", 155lbs and have a long torso. I often have a hard time getting the right fit with tops and jackets, and this one is right on the money. The sleeves are slightly longer than most, which I love. The torso covers me completely and comfortably, and I love the high neck collar so you don't need to wear a scarf. A size 10 was just right for me, with a snug fit yet room enough to move around when skiing/snowboarding. The rich red color is beautiful. Very happy with this purchase!

I really wanted to like this jacket. Felt well-made and the fit was decent but the two rhinestones on the sleeves were a no-go. You can barely see them in the picture and they're pretty small but made they made the jacket feel like a bedazzled juniors jacket. I'm not 12 yrs old so these got sent back.

Super warm and comfortable! Love the fit, love the color, and seems to be very well made. The hidden hood is a nice bonus. Usually I don't like a bulky hood, so it's nice to have it hidden, rather than detachable. Usually if it's detachable, I don't have it when I need it!

I bought this because I wanted something warm but stylish to replace my old but super-warm North Face down coat. I love this jacket but I'll comment on two things. Warmth: it's very warm - I've taken walks in zero-degree weather and I can tell it's a shade less warm than my old puffer coat. Still, with one layer underneath, I'm fine. The fit: This jacket would work best on a tall slim person. I ordered a size 8 and most size 8 coats would have plenty of room - this one is snug around the torso and the arms are long. But the cut of the jacket makes it work, even though I'm not tall (5'3") and I am definitely enjoying it. I like that the hood is folded and hidden in the collar. Haven't used it yet so I don't know if it's actually useful or not!

Like most ski jackets, this jacket runs a little small. I usually wear a size 12 but I bought a size 14 and it fits perfectly. It has a bit of shirttail look which I like. The puffiness is slight so it looks attractive and stylish. Most important of all this jacket is warm and comfortable. I love it!

I bought this for casual use, but love it so much that I want to use it all the time. Considering using it on the slopes. Have not tested it in the rain/wet conditions yet. Extremely lightweight yet surprisingly warm.
