I was looking for a good rain jacket and this one fit the bill with it's H2Oproof rating of 28,000mm. Since the description mentioned this jacket being a shell, I wasn't expecting an inner liner to be included with the jacket and was pleasantly surprised! The lining inside the collar and the pockets is very soft. I like the inner powder skirt as it helps to keep the jacket in place which should be great for skiing. The velcro tabs help to keep the pockets closed over even when not zipped and it works well on the front of the jacket too. The jacket is also cut slightly tapered so I don't look like a blobless shape in a rain jacket and this was yet another great surprise! I'm only 5' 3", but typically wear a Large to accommodate my chest and this didn't leave me swimming in the body length at all. The arms are a bit long for me, but the velcro ties fix that easily. I ordered in Chive as the Russet Orange color was OOS in my size and am happy since it is not as drab as the color swatch looked! Oh and I really appreciate that the back of the jacket dips down slightly lower than the front. Helps to keep my backside toasty. :)
