Solid Jacket

I have about a year on this jacket with good use. It has held up very well and is a great ski jacket. It has one of the most important features for me in a Ski jacket - sleeves that go over your gloves! This also has a HUGE hood (but not too big) and is the correct length, etc. I am 6ft 184 and the Large fits great!

Very satisfied

This is my first high-end jacket, and so far I love it. Spent the day snowboarding in rainy spring conditions at Whistler, and the only parts of me that stayed dry were under my jacket. I agree with many other reviews that it is tight across the shoulders. It's obvious when I'm testing the limits of my range of motion, but it never impeded me on the mountain, and I have a pretty athletic build. That being said, I got the jacket in a slimmer fit (M), and there probably isn't enough room to get many layers on those really cold days.
The zipper is a bit stiff sometimes, can be difficult to fiddle with when I have gloves on. The hood fits extremely well, and is large enough for a helmet, but has adjustments to fit it without.

Awesome jacket

The only problem is sizing... I'm 6'1 200 athletic build so I tried a large and an extra large, large was very tight in the shoulders and extra large I was swimming in it... I was really bummed I had to return it...

Good Weight for Cali

Just had my first day out with this jacket. Worked great on a 35 degree Mammoth day. I'm sure it could go colder and even warmer depending on the layers. Medium fits perfect, good pockets. The only down side is the sleeve extensions that go around your thumbs are very tight at the thumb holes. I had to take them off my thumbs 20 min into the day. All and all great quality.

Too tight in the chest/back/shoulders

The jacket would be great, and the sleeves are the right length, but it's too tight across the front and the back. With layers you become very stiff. I've found this with a pair of mountain hardware pants that fit perfectly except for too tight when you bend down. I'm definitely a size small, and not a big guy. If I got a medium in this jacket the sleeves would be way too long. Sad to say, I have to send it back. If you're going to buy it, definitely try it on first or be sure you can return it. I wish it fit, seems great otherwise!

Hey guys, I'm about 6'2" and 190, would...

Hey guys, I'm about 6'2" and 190, would you recommend the Large or XL in this jacket? More than likely I would layer with a couple non bulk layers and on the colder/non-touring days a down jacket a possibility also. Thanks.

I'm 6'1 175 and the Large just fit me. Slightly tight in the back. I'd go with an XL for you.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this jacket for the past few weeks and this is what you need to know.

1. You will be dry. I've been in 32 degrees and almost raining in Mt Baker and I was still dry.

2. This shell is not warm what so ever. So layer accordingly. It is a great piece but don't expect much or any warmth from it.

3. Material is a tad bit stiff, but not enough to affect the jacket in my opinion.
