Great jacket, but there are a couple reasons to seriously consider switching to the Alpha SV, as I did. The main reason being the increased durability of the Alpha while weighing less. The pocket location on the Alpha is more suited to wearing a pack or accessing in general, never needed the "hand warmer" pockets of the rush. Also the powder skirt is not necessary for me as I usually wear a 1/2 bib, if I really need to keep it out the Alpha has a hem cinch and a waist cinch. The stash pocket for goggles was nice when walking from the car but anything more than that and I put them in my pack or in my thigh pocket anyway since that location is a bit awkward. Also the Alpha SV allows a little more more head movement when wearing a helmet and everything is cinched tight.

Great Board, turns amazing. I am a big guy ~ 260lb so it turns very easy for me, got it after my first season was worried it would be too much, but it isn't (probably due to me being 60 over the recommended weight). It responds very well to an agressive style but you can just cruse the groomers, which it destroys.
