very warm ski coat

This a an extremely warm ski coat. I wore it in Vermont in -17 degrees at the base lodge for two days in a row (presidents weekend 2016) I was never cold. Just three light base layers under it. Thin long underwear shirt, a Terramar base layer shirt (these are fantastic) and a thin waffle type mid layer. This was a weekend so cold that Killington was empty. Extremely unusual for a holiday weekend. It is usually packed.The crowd was more like a Tuesday than a holiday weekend. We Skiied directly onto the lifts. I think this says it all about how severe the cold was.
The coat has two zippered inside pockets and a large dump pocket (google pocket I think it is referred to as) and of course pit zips and the usual hand warmer pockets. My only two criticism is that it could use a dedicated lift ticket ring (hanging the lift ticket on a hand warmer pocket zipper tends to try to put the zipper open, a small inconvenience but annoying, it does have a lower arm zippered pocket for the newer electronic lift tickets which is great when you visit an area with that system (Stowe, Okemo and many others, more each year) and it is a little bulky but if you are heading out into severe cold this jacket will keep you warm. For spring skiing look elsewhere. I am 5'7 170 lbs medium fits great. I have written very few reviews in my life but this is such a very warm jacket that deserves to be reviewed.
