So far I really like this jacket. I'm 5'7" 160 but with big shoulders (40 sportcoat) and ordered the medium and it fits great. I ordered it to use as a laying piece, which it works awesome as, but I've also been using it as my around town coat too. I live in the PNW, so I needed something that I wasn't afraid to get wet and this has repelled it's share of rain already. I haven't put it through the paces on BC ski tours yet, but I'm pretty confident with the fleece panels on the sides it will do the trick.
2 days on this ski so far, so these are basically first impressions. I'm 5'6" 160# and I'm riding the 182 mounted with dukes. These skis want to go straight and go fast. Powder is no problem, crud, no problem. You need to pin it from top to bottom though. Another review hit the nail on the head when he said you need to choke these things back. I like it, but others may not. I'm for sure on the smaller end of the intended skier demographic for this ski. A little extra weight and height(leverage)would probably go a long way.
In all honestly, wouldn't recommend to anyone smaller than me. If you're my size, don't expect any freebies. That being said, I've had a blast on them. 4/5 stars
Hope this helps...
Yes, I have these pants and they have the internal elastic gators to go over your boots. Not sure what lavalord11 is talking about...
Another sizing question. Does this have a more athletic cut than a Patagonia nano puff? Nano puff seemed pretty boxy on me, even though I'm pretty boxy at 5'6" 160 with broad shoulders (40 sportcoat). Looking for a snug fit. M or S?
