Picked this up as a insulated ski jacket for cold wet days. Pros: It generally fits well (see below); the hood fits over my helmet and is warm; the chin area works well; the shell fabric, while not Proshell grade, seems sturdy enough; the insulation is thick; the terracota color is attractive; pit zips, powder skirt, etc. Cons: the hem is too wide; it could be longer in the torso. It's my first Montbell and the quality seems high for the price - what's up with that?

This should be a no-brainer to buy but sizing has always been a problem. The old version was annoyingly small in places, especially the arm holes. The new one is way too big in places. I ordered a large and my wife and I could both fit inside. Question: Who runs the Patagonia sizing department? Patagonia should call the sizing person at Arcteryx and offer to double their salary.

This is a nice jacket, but I didn't find it as warm as advertised as a midlayer under my shell. I tried one of these and then switched to a midweight fleece on the same day and the fleece felt warmer. Also, the zipper doesn't stay up at the top of the collar. But it's resonably warm, windproof and very light. But I'll stick with my fleece for now
