Worth every penny and then some

I am a snowboard instructor and easily get 100 + days on the snow every year. In the past I have only purchased Gore-Tex jackets because I believed all other materials would not hold up to the abuse I put them through. Now I have only had his jacket for two months now the so I cannot speak to the longevity of the jacket yet, but so far it has replaced all the other jackets I own. It is amazingly light and flexible; the insulation is not bulky whatsoever and yet provides more warmth then even some of really bulky down jackets. This jacket is in a class of its own because it is a great resort jacket and yet it is designed for; and is truly at home while in the backcountry hiking and skiing. The hood is massive and can easily accommodate a helmet, and the sleeves are a little longer to eliminate cold spots around the wrist. With four external and one internal pocket there is plenty of room to carry your stuff. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the tightening system around the powder skirt. Seems a little on the cheap side, but over all a great jacket.
