So far, I am loving the jacket. I have been trying on jackets since the end of last ski season and was in the search of something close to the KJUS Formula jacket. Now, for the record, the Kjus jacket retails for $900. I wanted a ski parka that was relatively light weight, softshell, some insulation, wrist gaitors, plenty of pockets, and can stretch. The Kjus jacket is amazing and I was using that to set the bar. This jacket nailed it. I do like some of the features better and the feel seems a little nicer on the Kjus, but the price difference is quite a lot. I got the black and paparika which is somewhere between red and orange. So far it hasn't been colder than 25 f. I have been using a Patagonia Cap 3 baselayer with generic fleece sweatshirt and have been plenty warm. It seems to do a great job of dissipating heat and sweat. It stretches just enough to not feel constricting. I took it out in a 40 degree rain to walk the dog and it performed flawlessly.
PROS: Stretches nicely, soft to the touch inside and out, wrist gaitors, 4 external pockets (one fits a half liter Platypus bottle perfectly which is a HUGE plus for me), removable snow skirt, hood fits over my helmet, big enough to layer, and does not feel bulky at all.
CONS: The cut is a little big if not layering over a Pat down sweater, i prefer a removable hood, and I wish it had two internal pockets. Now the internal pocket thing isn't a big deal, it's just nice to have one on each side to balance out phone and mp3 player.
To recap, It is by far the nicest $300 coat I have tried. It pulls a close second to a $900 Kjus jacket. Most jackets now seem to be cut for a snowboarder with a stiff outer layer. Sorry but not my style. If you are looking for a technical shell for all weather, all day comfort, this may not be it. But for a VERY comfortable ski coat, I would have to spend close to $900 for something comparable.
