Cons: The zippers suuuck on this jacket! Agree with other post below....pockets to high, dunno kind of useless? NOT helmet compatible, unless yer nugget is the size of a grapefruit. Oh and good luck unzipping the pit zips, better have a friend close by. Pros: very warm and light, 5 degree day wind blowing sideways, all I had on on was a long sleeve and I was perfect, very waterproof(gore-tex of course). If you are looking for a SiMPle ski jacket...this is it. No horns or whistles. Also worried if i ever snagged a tree limb or branch...would probably tear easily. I have a Marmot Tamarack and in my opinion is a lot better jacket, it's just not insulated.

Used them for the first time yesterday in a big storm @ Loveland, kept hands warm(w/out liners). Temp outside was about 15 degrees. Great material......I guess any complaint would be, a little bit bigger gauntlet to go over my jacket better. Kids have a different pair of Dakine mitts....no bitchin', thats always a bonus!.......
Now a year later I can honestly say, I don't really like these mitts and are returning them. The gauntlet sux. They barely fit over any of my jackets. Also when your hands get the slightest bit of moisture on them, the liners stick to your hands. Size runs small! Xl are more like a large.

On the steeper side for price......but decent i guess? I'm not much on the sleeves down by the wrist. I have a large, I'm 5'11" 170 with pretty long arms and the sleeves seem to be made for maybe an Orangutan? Everywhere else the jacket feels true to size. I definetly would not pay full price for this. Not gonna b*tch too much as I do where the jacket alot'...plus I have to "Represent" the Goat!~

Never took them out to use....the shell seemed to withstand anything. Inside is another story....if you don't mind your fingers in a "Sleestack, Nanu-Nanu" split between the finger thing....than these mitts are for you. My paws felt bunched....even when i sized up? Returned for some Dakine mitts, we shall see.
