I got this jacket in the Forest/Agave for a girl I know and she loves it. Says it's super soft and keeps her warm down to probably 20F without any extra layers underneath. She uses the jacket all the time now. The coloring on the picture is pretty true to the Forest. The pink and the agave colors are much more tame in person though.

The inside of this jacket is the softest, warmest, best fleece lining EVER!!! It feels so good on the skin that I want to wear it naked. I havent tried sking with this jacket and am not sure that it is technically right for sking (may be too warm on the inside and not waterproof enough on the outside) but I do absolutely love this as an everyday cold weather walk around town jacket. It looks AMAZING!!! I am 5'2" and 130 lbs with 34DD breasts and got this in a size Medium for an absolutely PERFECT FIT.

Great quality and feminine cut, although the arms are a bit tight as the thick pile insulation lines the entire jacket. Even so, it does have some stretchy give. I don't imagine I'd have to wear anything but a single layer under it, so I hope this won;t become a problem. I tried a size up but it was way too big in the bust. Size small for my 5'5" 133 34A. I plan to use it for mild to moderately cold front/sidecountry skiing and around town. I imagine the pit zips (have a mesh vent when unzipped) will be very useful.
The magenta/ kelly green color combo is also unique - wish I could have seen the other forest color in person as computer photos are not that accurate, and it might have been preferable. The pink is not nearly as bright as is shown.
It is hard to find a truly warm soft shell. My first purchase of this brand and so far, so good.
I purchased this jacket for my girlfriend for ice climbing and she loves it! The grid fleece on the inside is warmer and thicker than expected, definitely a positive feature. The pit zips are not very long, so not sure how much ventilation they actually offer, but this softshell shouldn't be worn in conditions where you would need to dump heat. The length is just long enough to stay tucked into a harness and not pull through when swinging tools above your head. The pink color is definitely not as bright as in the picture, more of a pink/purple in reality (which was a good thing). Stoic fits small, my girlfriend is 5'8" and 140 lbs, athletic build and the medium fits well w/ the R1 Hoody baselayer.

I bought this jacket on a whim not knowing what to expect. So far, I am LOVING it! It's a nice fitted fit and looks very nice and feminine. The inside fleece is just soooo soft and comfy that if you wear a t-shirt under it, you will still be super comfy The water resistance is great. I was just out in a rain storm and it held up quite nicely. I couldn't decide on the color at first, but I went with the agave with pink zippers. It's pretty cool looking. The outside material is also soft and feels quite nice. I highly highly recommend this jacket if you're looking for a mid weight late fall/early winter jacket to run around in.
Colour and Fit?
Can anyone comment on on the forest/agave colour? Is the screen pic a true representation? Other thoughts on the jacket fit and performance? I am 5'4, 125lbs, 34D and would appreciate any insight on fit as well! (not sure to go Small or Medium?)
I just got the jacket and yes, the screen is an accurate representation. I am 5'4" 110lb, 34B and the jacket fits nice, not snug and not big, just right. I really really like this jacket.
Kroy what size did you order xs or small

- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
This is a great jacket, but unfortunately just wasn't for me. It has a great fit and is amazingly warm. The only reason i returned it is that I wasn't in love with the color. However, I would still highly recommended it based on the high quality and style.
- Gender: Female
I couldn't be happier with the jacket. It is extremely functional and stylish all at the same time. Haha. I love the adjustable waist, it helps the jacket fit just right to my frame to retain warmth. Having the fleece be in the sleeves and pockets in addition to the body of the jacket is a huge plus. As a boulder, it's really awesome to be able to keep my hands warm until it's time to put hand to rock. :) The majority of women's jackets I've had have a super small and uncomfortable fitting hood. This jacket has the PERFECT hood. Plenty of space and designed to fit comfortably without awkwardly pulling on my hair and such. The under arm zipper vents are great for more moderate weather, I can still wear my jacket to fend off a breeze but not over roast. I use the chest pocket all the time. I've gotten a lot of compliments on the color scheme, and what girl wouldn't love pink zippers?! The jacked does have a bit of weight to it so I wouldn't ever wear it on any serious adventures. For day to day winter warmth and comfort in the outdoors, this jacket is perfect.

This is my new go-to cold weather jacket. I wear it every morning and night when I take my dog to the park. I already owned the Welder Lo Fleece version and always had to layer it with a long sleeve to get the warmth I needed. With the Hi Fleece, I just throw it on over a tank top and head out of the house, which is exactly what I was looking for.
As a note: The Boysenberry is not as pink as it looks in the photo. I was actually a little nervous buying such a bright colored jacket, but was pleasantly surprised at the gorgeous raspberry/fuchsia/magenta color it turned out to be.
As for size: I'm 5'5", 115lbs and was torn between the XS and S. I went with the S, and it fits perfectly.
I get so many compliments on it and recommend it to everyone.
