great jacket for skiing... arms can be tight... good for tall gals

Reviewed by Arty1 from Washington DC on Saturday, May 7, 2016
I wore this jacket skiing in 10-20 degree weather. Very pleased with fit, quality, fabric feel. I ordered may ski jackets to try before my trip and this was by far the best one. It kept me warm and dry (there was blowing snow), and feeling stylish. Compared to my baggy oversized old jacket, I was worried I would not be warm enough without the bulk but I was. I am tall and have thin arms (6', 150lb) and I found that the jacket arms got tight (if I bent them) with a thin Icebreaker base layer and a sweater on. I could not bend my arm fully, so a star was deducted. Then again, I do tend to get cold and am just a bunny slope gal, so for someone who burns calories on the slope less layers for the arms would be fine. I ordered a 10. Good mid section coverage when skiing (important for tall gals as jackets can be too short). Sleeves were a tiny bit short but passable, if you look at the model photo for me it's an inch shorter. On the 10 degree day I wore a cashmere vest, that was a good solution to the tight arm issue! Anyone with broad shoulders should size up.
