It's always nice to have a review after a season of using it instead of when you just get it. Water proof has not worn off after 50+ days of skiing. Definitely keeps the warmth in on the cold days, but you still have to layer. On the really wet deep powder days it will get a bit wet, but way less wet then the rest of your equipment. Also once you go inside it dries off very quickly. A tiny bit of de lamination near the pockets, but doesn't affect the jacket at all. Other than that it's built to last and is super strong. I've had a few encounters with tree's and this jacket does not rip! One thing that would be nice is if the hood was just a tiny bit bigger. It fits well, but not well enough for the super deep, blower, windy pow days. Buy this jacket if it's on sale. Way worth it!
