Big mountain legend Jeremy Jones has endured every backcountry condition imaginable, so you better believe his signature O'Neill Men's Jones 3L Jacket is capable of withstanding the harshest storms and keeping you comfortable when you're pushing yourself to the limit. This lightweight shell is designed to move with you in high alpine terrain and keep you dry through any storm from Alaska to Kathmandu.
Schoeller C-Change fabric keeps you dry in the soggiest storms, and it reacts to your body's temperature to offer more breathability when you're warm and working hard. The articulated fit helps it move with you whether you're skinning up or riding down, and it allows room to layer underneath when temperatures plummet.
Zippered underarm vents help you cool off quickly when you're pushing to the summit, while a stretch powder skirt keeps snow out when you're shredding waist-deep pow. Waterproof zips and fully sealed seams prevent moisture from seeping in when the conditions are soggy. The hem can be cinched up to seal out icy winds, and vents at the chin guard prevent your breath from fogging up your goggles. When you're ready to push your backcountry riding deeper, further, and higher, count on the Jones 3L Jacket.

Pros: Great construction on this jacket, I've taken a few tree shots this season and hardly a scratch. Seams are heavily reinforced and when temperatures are low (-50) to freezing an all around charger with wind-proofing, breatheability, durability, and style.
The cons: NOT for spring skiing. This fabric does not handle wet weather well at all and soaked through in less than 30 minutes in a mild winter mix. For comparison a fellow rider's 8 year old, never waterproofed, resort smock actually stayed dry longer.
Bottom line: Great for when the temps are down and style is high but I expect more weather proofing from a 3 layer jacket. A shell should be able to handle it all, not just sub freezing weather.
Does the jacket have side pockets, like most normal jackets?
