    Nice but definitely for tall folk I'm 6'4" and these pants are about 2" too long for me. Hate tripping over them at the gym

    Well made, great ski jacket features with pockets, great hood, detachable powder skirt.

    Minor problem with zipper pull breaking. Unfortunately, no inventory at Sierra Trading Post to exchange. I wanted the jacket at the great price so I contacted the manufacturer who responded promptly and sent a new zipper pull.

    There is a reason you pay more for Karbon, Great support!

    I like the quality and fit of this jacket but it's not quite as arm as I had hoped. The hood is a little too big even when I take in the draw strings and just made of the outer material, so again, not very warm and a little flimsy. This jacket is probably better suited for women who get really hot when they ski (as I should have clued in on with the side vent zips feature). Unfortunately that's not me:(

    I ordered this jacket despite the fact that it wasn't available in my size (8) -- never a good start, but it's a great brand and sometimes a 6 can work for me. It's an exceptionally well made jacket with everything you'd want for skiing on a cold day --skirt, slim fit, goggle wipe, decent sized pockets with fleece on outside. It's quite a bit better looking in person than in the picture. It has a nicely cut longer waist and looks high end. It seems warm, but not sweltering. If you have bigger shoulders and/ or bust, give this one a try if it's here in your size- the overall fit was right for me in terms of proportions (unlike brands like Patagonia or Obermeyer, which often run bigger in the hips). The pit zips are just along the sides, and the collar actually looks pretty good, unlike 90% of jackets with too big floppy or stiff collars. The negatives for me were related to that size 6 issue-- this is a slim cut jacket, with fairly narrow arms and body. The underarms were a bit tight, with an armpit seam that felt like a knot especially on one side. There wasn't much room to layer. I needed a jacket I could wear down to 0 degrees, so that wasn't going to work.

    Regretfully, I decided it had to go back, but if it shows up in an 8, I'll order again!

    I have not had a chance to actually wear this ski jacket and test it in real world snow conditions. I have now ordered my 2nd replacement product, with each product having defects in stitching. One had a stitching error creating an upward wind scoop near the bottom of the jacket. The second one had the wrist closure strap stitched into the cuff. I certainly did not expect this degree of quality from a Karbon product. In addition, I can't believe that Sierra Trading Post is actually releasing products of this nature.

    I was looking to upgrade my ski shell. This Karbon jacket has exceeded my expectations and the insulation will be appreciated on those cold VT days - especially when layered with a down or fleece jacket. The jacket is very well made and comfortable. The fit is perfect (Medium - I'm 5'9", 155 lbs). I love the many features of this jacket - removable snow skirt and hood, numerous pockets - including one for goggles, and the neoprene skiers sleeves. Can't be the value of this jacket at STP's prices.

    this jacket met all of my expectations - was looking for a ski jacket that could double as a warm winter weather coat.... i wanted to be able to layer underneath it but still have it be warm enough that i could wear it alone. i found it. it's deceivingly light - i was worried it wouldn't be too warm before i put it on.
    sizing: i am 5'7 and 120 lbs, pretty straight build. i usually wear a 0 or small in jackets, and this one was true to size (got a S). sleeves are long enough, and it hits just around the hip on me.

    Purchased this for my wife. Fits and looks great. Super quality. Seems fairly true to size.

    Bought this for my husband - I tried a few others, but they were just too bulky, or looked like a big, shiny black garbage bag. This coat is about as tailored as a down coat can be, nice cut in the back and not too puffy. And best of all it's extremely warm! Would highly recommend, and cannot beat the STP Price.
