Durable weather protection for harsh alpine environments.
You're suspended halfway up a vertical mountain wall when a blustery wind picks up and rain begins to fall, and you grow increasingly thankful for your Norrøna Men's Trollveggen Dri3 Jacket. The jacket is made of a high-performance, breathable stretch fabric that allows you to reach freely for cracks and work up a sweat without getting overly clammy, while offering a high level of waterproof, windproof protection. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish beads moisture into droplets that run off rather than penetrating the fabric, and if moisture does get through the surface fabric in a downpour, it is trapped by the hydrophillic membrane that spreads the moisture across the surface area of the jacket, and keeps it from getting through to your skin or clothing underneath. The rugged fabric is designed to withstand the rigors of harsh alpine environments, including rubbing against rock faces, so its valuable weatherproof protection isn't easily sacrificed when you need it most.
Throw the jacket's hood over your helmet or head for extra warmth, and quickly cinch in the hood, hem and waist with one-hand pull cords for a stay-put, protective fit. Asymmetric cuffs with hook-and-loop closure straps and the drop-tail hem offer added coverage to keep cold air out. If the air temperature or your body temperature rise to uncomfortable levels, you can vent by opening up the two-way underarm zippers. Zippered handwarmer pockets are placed to stay out of the way of your harness or backpack hip belt, and the YKK water-resistant zippers keep moisture from sneaking in through the cracks.

Also...what is the fit of this jacket like compared to say a Burton Freebird jacket? True to fit or best to size up for a skiing / split boarding jacket?
I've never worn the Burton Freebird jacket, but I have tried this jacket on and found that the size is true with a very generous fit for layering. I am 6'1" and usually wear a medium. Medium in this jacket felt great, plenty of length in the sleeves and torso, plenty of space to layer a puffy, etc. if needed, and enough space for easy mobility without extra fabric hanging off me everywhere. I'd say go with your normal size for a good active skiing/split boarding fit.

Any chance you could add a photo of the Ionic Blue color, so I can be sure of the actual color (often the advertised color is not a true representation). Surprised no one has asked any question or added any revioews, looks like it would be quite a nice backcountry / sidecountry jacket? Thanks in advance.
If you do a little digging I think you can find some reviews and more info on this jacket, I believe there was a different product page for last years version of the jacket (same name and everything) that had some reviews, etc. on it. There may also be some independent reviews if you do some googling.
