Burly, awesome jacket

Reviewed by Ski Jay 'ery day from Burlington, VT on Thursday, January 24, 2013
This is my exclusive jacket for both in and out of bounds skiing and any other active winter activity. It has tons of pocket space, both inside and out, to easily fit whatever skins or phones or anything you carry around. The fit is perfect for layering: large enough to wear a baselayer, fleece, and possibly another layer underneath, but not too large as to be baggy (for reference im 5'9" and ~145 lbs and I wear a mens M).

The neck zips up nice and high around then neck for when the wind comes howling, although I have felt a chill coming from underneath if I'm riding a windy lift (that could possibly be fixed with the waist cinch (sp?), I'm still experimenting.)

Overall though I love this jacket - its warm (for a shell), burly, and can withstand anything I throw at it. My only complaint is the price (Disclosure: i bought mine at < full price) and that there seems to be slight wear on the cloth near the wrist zippers after 15-ish days skiing this year. However, if you have the cash and are looking for one of the best jackets on the market you can't go wrong with this. Plus OR has a great lifetime warranty
