A really nice jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by nekekal from Colville WA on Tuesday, March 6, 2012
This is the replacement for the jacket I reviewed earlier. The general sizing seems to be a bit small. The XL fit in my shoulders about like the L but the bottom was larger. The sleeves were still a little long.

But now I have used the jacket on several skiing trips. It is very warm. On a 20 degree day, I had to open the pit zips. The next time I dressed lighter and was better. Last time the wind was blowing straight into me while riding the chair lift. No wind penetrated the jacket anywhere. The zippers are really wind proof, probably water proof too. There are a lot of pockets and they all have the incredible zipper. Really a great jacket.

The attached contrasting color is still glued on, but I still gave it a 5 star, and the zippers on the ventilation are different and operate less well. I use them infrequently so I am ok with them

You probably do want to consider the size carefully. I needed the larger size than normal for me, but it might just be my body shape. It did seem small for its rating.
