A bit disappointed, but not yet certain.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nekekal from Colville, WA on Wednesday, February 22, 2012
I bought this to replace my decades old gore-tex ski jacket. It is size 42. This one was sized up to 44. And looked pretty good in the pictures. Good number of pockets, windproof, water resistant, insulated. Should have been good.

The contrasting color stripes are just glued onto the main coat fabric. The chest size seemed perfect for me. The sleeves were a bit long. The area at the bottom around my hips was very snug. I wear size 36 ski pants. I could not tell if the stretch material would work or fail under the pressure. The zipper is supposed to be windproof and is strange. If it failed, it looked to be non-replaceable.

I debated what to do. Send it back, or exchange for a larger one, which has the possibility of being too large in the chest and the sleeves.

I elected to send it back for an exchange. Due to the lengthy exchange process at STP I have not yet received the replacement. I am not especially optimistic.
