I have the previous year's sabre sv in squid ink. This jacket sees year round use, even though it has a snow skirt (which i found helps in the wind) The micro fleece backed goretex is nice on the skin, except for i have one seam which seems to be a little itchy sometimes in the armpit area. The softshell is soft and supple, not as noisy as a regular proshell or paclite. The jacket is very loose fitting, a size XL expedition cut jacket fits me perfect with a light mid layer, but this relaxed fit is a bit larger, would accomodate for more layers if you wanted. The length is good for me, i prefer my jackets to be a little longer to prevent riding up and keep the cold out. The waterproof zippers are true to name, ive worn this jacket through rain storms with no water getting in. The squid ink color is more bluish in person. Overall, i highly recommend this jacket if you plan on using it for snow sports, or anything really.
