Ski Jacket Becomes All-Purpose Jacket

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I can't say that I have worn this jacket skiing yet (my original intent in buying it), but I can say that I have worn it hiking and around town to keep me warm as winter comes. First impression: I love it. I opted for aqua - the color pops and is true to the product image. I can already tell that the fleece detailing around the neck is going to be a huge win once snow becomes part of the equation. There are also a lot of great pockets to store your media player/phone and two large internal pockets that could easily fit a pair of gloves.

In terms of fit I went for a size S and it is a little big on my frame (I am 5'4" and on the petite side). The sleeves are a 1/2 inch too long, but with this said, I think I am going to be glad for the extra room come ski season when I can layer up with fleeces and such!
