I bought this for my wife to replace a 10-yr old Mountain Hardwear ski jacket, so hopefully this one will last just as long. It is stunning on her, and she says it is the "best breathing" backcountry jacket she's ever owned. It has great fit, lots of needed features like a removable powder skirt, generous pit zips, soft sleeve cuffs, tall collar, and a soft feel. The only thing we both agree on is the disappointing trend to have hoods be non-removable. We both like to ski with a pack, and often wish that hoods were removable so you only had to have them on for those really bad days. Otherwise, this jacket ROCKS.
