Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jacky from Kaohsiung on Wednesday, September 27, 2017This is a great jacket for that transition time into winter
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Scott from Tahoe, CA on Friday, February 24, 2017This is the finest Ski Parka I have owned. It is as light as some shells I have used, but is insulated. It has been warm with only a single light layer even down to 19F.
It does not restrict motion, and I love the detachable hood.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by NYCski from New York on Tuesday, February 21, 2017Warm! It's a fairly lightweight jacket but a single layer underneath was plenty in high 30s. Haven't put it through any extreme weather but looks like it's up the the task. Contstruction quality is high.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by jg from noth east on Saturday, February 18, 2017Sick of layering . This jacket is great.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Norseman from Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday, February 16, 2017Overall, I'm pleased with the jacket. I'm 6' 4" and 195 lbs (on the slim side). As such, I find most XL sizes to be a bit loose fitting. Not this jacket. Wearing a tee and a mid-weight fleece, I found the jacket to be snug. So if you are on the cusp as far as sizes or plan on wearing heavy layers under your jacket you may consider moving up a size. Quality and styling are top notch with plenty of pockets and reflective markers on the sleeves. The outer membrane keeps out the wind very well and it appears to insulate as well as some heavier jackets. I did not like the hood and removed it from the jacket. The collar tends to stand up (note the picture) and can be annoying when turning your head. I either completely fold the collar down or zip all the way up. I have found the zipper to be on the small size which makes grasping and fitting more work than it should be. All-in-all a good jacket but not quite a perfect product.
Question & Answer

“Does the skirt zip out? I like the jacket for every day and don't really ski much so I want to make sure it can be removed. Thanks.”
There is no separate zip out. The only detachable piece is the hood. I would consider this jacket for everyday winter wear but it is doubtful that I would ever take it on a hike/backpacking trip as there is no ability to shed layers. The other consideration is that unlike my old Columbia winter jacket, this Phenix Orca jacket is cut just above the waist. Due to the longer fit of my Columbia jacket, I feel it kept more of the wind out when using for every day use. Being from Vegas, this may not be as an important consideration. I have found a lot of great features to the jacket and it is well made.
Thanks for the excellent help here, backpacker from Ohio. Cool beans!
