I bought this jacket after much deliberation. I like inside pockets, and only a couple are listed here. The jacket actually has a small stuff it pocket with a snap closure and another small stuff it pocket in addition to the pockets listed in the description. Perfect. I wear a medium in almost every jacket I own (I'm 5"10" 155)but the medium in this jacket is way big, so I ended up with the small, which still left plenty of room for layering... I wore the jacket for 6 days straight skiing in Breck with the temp ranging from -36F to 20F, in dumping snow as well as heavy wind and the jacket was awesome. I skied the trees and the jacket is bombproof, and wind and water did not penetrate. As good as any Gore Tex jacket I have owned, without the price tag. The Chest to waist venting was convenient for reaching inner pockets and much easier to see and maneuver than pit zips. Powder skirt did its job. This jacket shows the same great quality that OR puts into all its mountaineering and outdoor products. As an aside, Backountry is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with, the return policy, as well as the customer service and CARE! is outstanding. The reps went out of there way to ensure that I recieved my small jacket before I went on my trip after finding the medium way too big. Jacket and Backcountry both winners.

While I have not tried the liner with my Hestra Heli Gloves on the hill yet...this Sunday will be my first day out...however I can tell you that the gloves liner do not fit overly tight on my average size hands. I bought the heli glove in a size larger than normal to accomodate wearing the liner on cold days. I hope this helps you.

Bought these in March of 2008,and used for about 50 ski days before they begn todelaminate....till then the best ski pants I ever had. backcountry honored their return policy...the best! But did not have my size, so I ordered elsewhere...and unfortunately they changes the pants....they widened the cuffs and made the pants a bit baggier...not like the staight leg picture shown here..too bad, as they were extremely stylish as well...I e mailed OR and they assured me that the pants design hadn't changed since 2006...I say they are lying...I wore them for 2 season and one of the reasons I bought them over others was the less baggy and more straight legged style...now like most other ski pants...too long, too wide a cuff, and a bit baggier. Stinks! Oh, and the description here says 2 cargo pockets...but there is only 1. Disappointed in design change and OR's rfusal to acknowledge it.
