I love this jacket! I tried it out for the first time yesterday, and we had variable conditions all day. Started out nicely cool for skiing, probably just below 40 degrees. I wore this jacket on top of my Patagonia Capilene 3 base layer (one of the best base layers I have ever worn), and a fairly... Read More

    Bought this shell to be my dedicated spring skiing jacket and love how it performed. DryQ Elite breathes well for a spring membrane and that is exactly why I got it. I match this shell up with my Snowtastic pants to help shed heat and sweat during warm, sunny days. I go with Gore-Tex when the wind and cold require it, otherwise this is my go-to spring skiing outfit.
    Large is perfect on my 6'2", 200 lb. frame.

    This is a great shell. It is very light and waterproof. I wore it this past weekend sledding and tubing in 25 degree weather with a layer underneath and it did a great job of keeping me dry and the wind out. I am 5"9" tall, 163 pounds, size 40 jacket, 32" sleeves and the medium fit perfectly. It's not so big that it can't be worn alone as a rain jacket in warmer weather, but had enough room to comfortably fit a layer underneath for warmth. The hood is pretty big since it's made to go over a helmet but it has a nice cinch that allows it to be fit to your head when being worn without a helmet. Snow skirt worked well. Good pockets and placement for me. Not a big fan of the two-way zipper - it works fine but can be a little more trouble to get started than a single zipper. All in all I am thrilled with this shell and look forward to it becoming one of my go to jackets. Anxious to try it in warmer weather since many of the reviews talked about how well it breathes.

    I bought this jacket for skiing. I used it in spring of last season into late April in the Tahoe area. Performed very well in warm weather and breathes better than any Gore jacket I own. Gave it the test this fall in unseasonably cold weather with a down mid-layer. Temps in the 0 to 15 degree range were managed with no problem. Overall the only gripes I have is the two-way front zipper can be a pain and the sleeves are not quite long enough for my 6'4" 200 pound frame. Okay with a gauntlet glove, but under the cuff gloves are constantly slipping out from under the sleeve. Also the little thumb hole thingies are useless to me as my thumbs go numb if I use them. I just leave my thumbs out and it is good. The chest pocket is big enough for my Galaxy Note with an Otterbox case, which is unusual as most pockets have too small an opening to get the phablet into. I rated 4 stars only because of the sleeve issue. The rest is really good and the deal on this jacket is one of the best anywhere for a fully waterproof shell with a bunch of snow friendly features.

    I bought this for my husband, and he loves it. He says he has never had a ski jacket this light before. It is like wearing a shirt! He hasn't worn it skiing yet because it is only October, but he wore it to a football game one night just to try it out, he said it was extremely warm and it was 23 degrees out that night.

    This jacket runs true to size. I am 5'8", 180lbs, and wear a size 40 normally and have size 17 arms in dress shirts. I have broad shoulders, but most mediums fit me. Lately I've found Patagonia and some other brands are narrow and too tight for my chest and shoulders. Perhaps I'm getting fatter or their sizes have changed. I was a bit worried about buying this online, but...

    This jacket fits great. It is a little large in the stomach, but that's fine since this is where I stash my gloves, hat, etc. when touring in the bc. The hood is large enough to cover my helmet and the collar is large enough to easily fit around my face when fully zipped. The arms are almost perfect - when I put my arms straight out the monkey thumb hole pulls a little. But, the length of the arms overall is just right.

    I only tour in the bc (never inbounds), so this jacket will only be for descents. With that said, there are lots of nice features: there are 4 outer pockets - 2 side pockets (which are somewhat covered by my pack waistbelt, but can still be accessed), 1 chest, and 1 near the left wrist. There are 2 inner pockets - a zippered one on the right side with access for headphones and a deep, open pocket on the left. It has a zip off powder skirt that has two sets of buttons dependent on your waist size. And the pitzips are easy and long enough. Also, the monkey thumb part of the sleeve is elastic so it will help keep the powder from getting in the sleeve.

    Overall, I'm really impressed and can't wait to get out with this jacket.
