This is an awesome ski jacket! The material is soft and comfortable and the insulation keeps you warm and toasty on the slopes. The neck zips up over your chin with a fleece guard that blocks the wind and doesn't chafe your face. The jacket also has a lot of pockets for gear and necessities. It fits well and is flattering, not bulky.
The only negatives are that the hood fits tight over my helmet, making it difficult to turn my head, and the stretch inner cuffs with thumbholes are tight around my hand. I would still recommend it as those things are minor in my opinion!

I bought this for my wife for Christmas. She loves the flattering fit and colors, as well as the great warmth. Just one big problem! The jacket is unwearable due to the elastic on the interior sleeves at the wrist (the jacket has two layers on the sleeves). Wearing the jacket for a mere 15 minutes, she had clear presssure indentations on both wrists, and she said she felt like it was cutting off her circulation. Thinking something must be wrong because who would make a jacket like that, I asked her to give it another try. Same story after only 15 minutes of wear, only this time I checked and indeed her fingers/hands were changing colors due to lack of circulation. And no, this is not a wrist size issue - I tease my wife frequently about her tiny hands and wrists. There is no way that this jacket could be worn for any length of time without causing serious pain and possible injury (lack of circulation out in the cold? Not good). Without that, this is a five-star jacket. It only gets saved from one star because of every other feature being a home run. No use though, since wearing the jacket is out of the question. We will be returning it.
