I really like this jacket so far. I have only had it for a day, but I have been wearing it constantly. It is warm enough to wear outside in the cold, but still breathable enough to wear indoors. It's also a minor miracle that cat hair doesn't stick to it. I like the little details that this jacket has, like the construction of the hood. I have a big head and a long neck, and it still fits me great. The hood is cut in a way that keeps it tight on the side of your face to keep your ears warm, but sticks out a little on the top like a brim to keep the sun/rain/snow out of your eyes. It also has a high collar so keep your neck and chin warm when it is zipped all the way up. The ribbed gaiters at the cuffs and waist are thick and much like those on the inside of some ski jackets. The inside of the jacket is fleece, but the outside feels almost like a wetsuit. It's casual enough for everyday use, but you can church it up a bit with a scarf or something (I have the black one, and unlike the other colors, it is just one solid color). The only problem I could see someone having with this jacket is the articulated sleeves. This jacket fits me great an they don't bother me, but I can imagine if my arms were proportioned differently, such as if they were longer (or my elbows were lower), the seam would be annoying.

Overall, I really like the jacket and I'm wearing it as I type this post.

I had a chance to ride the A-frame for the first time yesterday. There was no powder to be had at the ski resort but no ice either. My first impression of the board was that it is especially slippery. The base is one of the fastest I've ridden, and the handling and edge control are phenomenal. I was laying down alpine board style carves all day long. At speed, the board is so stable that I could cut across moguls with no problem. I have been coveting this board for several years, and now that I have it, I have found one major flaw. Cosmetic damage to the board is more painful than with other boards because it is so beautiful.
