Great quality, features, and perfect length for tall ladies

Ordered this in small/black for my 5'8" <120 pound teen daughter. Even at STP it was an investment (undoable otherwise), but I was looking for that "final" ski jacket to take her on through the rest of her growth, and that also has all the features she will want for years to come. We may just have found it! Gore-Tex, RECCO, powder skirt, removable helmet compatible hood, pit zips...really, it has it all. The fabric is strong and quite heavy, and the brushed lining adds quite a bit of warmth.

She tried it on with a thin synthetic layer and, yes, it is roomy in the core; they could have nipped in the sides just a bit for that feminine cut. That said, when she is layered up for skiing (base layers, mid-weight layer, down/synthetic jacket) she may appreciate the extra room, and the mobility it provides. She and I both struggle with sleeve length, and this jacket is absolutely perfect for the long limbed. It is also a longer cut and hits at low hip on us.

For reference, I am 5'9" <140 pounds and I could wear this jacket in a small if I was not layering; I would want the medium to give me mobility through the shoulders with my multiple ski layers.
