Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this jacket about 2 years ago and have put it through the wringer. From backcountry powder days to 100MPH winds on Mt. Washington this pro shell has stood up to the test of time as I would expect from a high end gortex jacket. I'm 6'4" 190 pounds, unfortunately I was forced to buy and XL due to stock issues. I would prefer a L but the cut on the jacket is so perfect the larger size still works.
I do have 2 issues with the jacket. One I wish there was some type of snow guard around the waist. Two, every single zipper pull came off within the first few times of use. They are connected with a thin piece of wire that simply pulls right out of the zipper. It's not a big deal I was able to create my own but when you pay $600 for a jacket you expect a little more.

P.S. Looks like the fixed the zipper pulls on this years line.
