Runs a little big, as you can expect a normal snowboarding brand to run, especially burton. I didn't really like the zipper that much, it seemed like the zipper would always get stuck. Now i know that most water proof zippers don't slide as easily as normal zippers, but this one that I had would be really hard to zip up. I am not sure if that was normal or if i got a busted one.

Besides the zipper, it was super waterproof and really light so it was a pretty good combo.

I don't think people have been emphasizing enough in the reviews that this is a 2.5 layer jacket and is going to be thin, but its really paper thin, and super light. Great to stash at the bottom of you pack on a weekend trip or something. you can't go wrong having as a back up for normal rain.

He loves it. The fit is perfect, but now because it fits just right he is scared to put this in the dryer, which makes it hard to have a high maintenance piece of clothing that only cost 25$.

He is 6'1' 185lbs and he got the large. I has a slimmer fit which is normal for nixon's style of clothing. anyway he loves the style, Nixon always delivers on that.

This jacket is a slimmer fit. I got the white XL and I am 6' 2" and 185 lbs.
It fits just right, not sure how good it will fit if it gets thrown in the dryer a few times. Also the White seems kind of thin cotton shirt (if i had another shirt underneath, you could see the outline of the shirt underneath)

Really solid tool, good to put in your pack when you are boarding especially in the backcountry and need to adjust or fix. there are 5 different heads to the screw driver, I like it becuase the holder of the different peices seems tight so you don't have to worry about them falling out. Especially in your pack when you have other things that can be scratched and such. Its worth it if you don't have one already.

love the rocker and magnatraction.

I feel like the edges are slightly rounded to make it that much harder to catch and edge ridging switch.

Great pop, and will float you just fine in the power with the reverse camber.

I don't think we will see another board with this many innovations for a very long time. get one quick if you got the dough.

I just took these night skiing in about 11 degree weather, with wind and my hands were just fine. I like the goggle wipe, it works pretty good on the spherical goggles lenses.

Also they have a goggle wipe in the left hand pocket, which comes in handy when you want to have a clear dry goggle before a steep and sometimes dark tree run.

The liners are mittens too, they come out just fine. I like to take them out if I get to warm. The only thing that kind of bugs me about the mittens is that when i put the liner on, if the thumbs are not lined up perfectly i feel the seems off the thumb liner and it makes it uncomfortable since its pretty tight on me with big hands. Basically you just have to make sure it is on the right way or you will feel the lining very easily.
