Verified Buyer Reviewed by Linda D from New York on Friday, December 25, 2015This was a gift for my husband. He does not ski, but this will be great for walking the dogs and snow blowing!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by MT POW POW from Seattle/Bozeman on Wednesday, December 16, 2015Fit is slim but comfortable, length is good. I thought it would be thicker, with the fleece lining, but its pretty thin...not necessarily a bad thing, just unexpected. Color is awesome.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Brian from North Carolina on Friday, December 11, 2015This jacket is bomb proof. Although I did not field test it, it appears very durable and weatherproof. However, that also means heavy (2.4 lbs per the specs). I'm not sure about its breathability, but it does have nice side vents. The vents are not armpit vents ,but start at the side of the chest and go down to above the area where the powder skirt is. As far as sizing goes I felt that the arms were big (a tad long and also wide around the wrists). I am 5'9", 160lbs and got the medium. As it turns out I needed a lighter weight, more packable jacket for an expedition, but thought I would try this one because of the sale. This would probably be great for daily use at the resort or even backcountry if weight and packability are not considerations and if the weather conditions are bad (cold, windy, snowy)--probably too much for bluebird days.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Matt from Utah on Sunday, December 6, 2015Haven't been out on the mountain yet but jacket is very well constructed and pockets are numerous and well placed. I like that hood can be removed for blue bird days as well.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Montana Michael from Montana on Saturday, September 5, 2015The fit is slightly large so my title has no reference to that (I had read earlier reviews so I ordered a small when I am normally a medium); It is made tight referring to the structure, which is a huge bonus when in the snow for long periods of time. I haven't had much time with the jacket but from an early test it's a good choice, and at the price from Sierra it was an excellent choice.
