Here's what others have to say...

Perhaps it's because I should have gone with a small (though I was advised to purchase a medium), but this coat was like wearing a marshmallow. While I understand that winter coats are not supposed to be form fitting, this was crazy. The inner lining fit well, but the outer shell is way too big. I'm not sure going with a small would have fixed the problem, considering the inner lining fit. For reference: In a NF Denali, I wear a small. My measurements are 34, 26, 37, athletic build, 5'7".

I really wanted to like this jacket - so much so, I tried it on several times, but just couldn't justify spending even the great sale price for such a poor fit.

Is the inner liner down? or what is it?

By the product description, it's recycled polyester fill. Down typically fetches a higher price.

Hey there, you need to provide more sizing information other then just height/weight as these are not the best for determining the correct size...

Please explain the breatheability and waterproofing as we are more familiar with 10,000, /15,000, / 20,000 etc ratings. What is the equivalent for this jacket?

Responded on

Hi Heather, good question... while one can't directly translate PSI (pounds per square inch - which represents the amount of water force a fabric can handle before it starts to leak) to MM (millimeters per 24 hour period - is basically the volume of water a fabric can handle over a 24-hour period before it stops being waterproof), a good rule of thumb is:

-The Military classifies something as waterproof when its rated at 25psi or better.
-10,000 mm/24 is about 25 psi in real world use.
-10,000 mm/24 hour is considered the industry standard minimum for a garment to be waterproof.

So why all the different levels of waterproofing? It boils down to what you are going to be using the jacket for. A heavy downpour of rain might equal 6-7psi and water under your pack straps might be 12psi or more... As a rain jacket, 10k mm is fine. If you are a construction worker or river guide or ski patroller in the PNW and you are going to be kneeling/out-in wet snow/water repeatedly often/all day? You might want a garment with a rating of greater than 25psi/10k mm as it could leak under those pressures/duration/conditions...

Here's an explanation I like that I found on the web:

5K = Keeps you dry in light rain or dry, cold snow.
10K = Keeps you dry in moderate rain or on an average snowy day.
20K = Keeps you dry in heavy rain or while skiing in wet, snowy conditions.
30K = Keeps you dry if a river falls from the sky, all at once, and lands directly on your hood while you’re skiing through horizontal hail and firemen blast you with a hose.

These ratings only apply to the waterproof membrane the garment is using and a lot of other variables also determine how waterproof the garment will be... there is a science to it...

Now breathability is a whole other topic of discussion...

The equivalent is 14,420.85 mmh2o. The formula is psi*576.834 equals mmh2o.

I have been looking at the Barrage Triclimate and am wondering if this product will work sufficiently for me. I am going on a 6 month backpacking trip through South America and will hit many different climates. I want just one jacket that will work for all types of weather and that I will be warm enough in but won't be overly heavy. Is the Cheakamus warm enough for this purpose?

Responded on

For a 2nd and 3nd layer it will be good...but you need to know how cold are you most of the time in winter?!

Love it!

Bought the beautiful Artic Blue and skied snowy Vail back bowls before Christmas. Kept me warm and dry - very comfortable and lots of great ski-friendly technical details, like small zip arm pocket with goggle lens cloth on an attached line, clip for lift ticket in another pocket, zip venting. Waterproof and seam sealed. Powderskirt that integrates with NF pants. Liner is warm and very stylish. I was comfortable in windy, snowy weather with just a cotton tneck underneath. Plenty of room for a neck gaiter. Love the velcro on the zipper cover - those just look like snaps on the top, they don't function and you don't need with the velcro.

Great all conditions jacket

Wore this skiing in some rough cold (10 degree) snowy windy conditions and kept warm, though I recommend wearing a few layers underneath. Love the zip out liner for when it gets warm plus the vents in the pits and the goggle wipe. Could use more pockets. Unfortunately, the little fabric loop in the sleeve that allows the liner and jacket to snap together shredded on one sleeve within the first week of wearing the jacket. I am 5'4" and 118 lb. and the small fits great. Not the most flattering fit, but very comfortable and functional.

Weird Sizing

I ordered the blue Cheakamus jacket in sizes XS and S because I never know which one I am. Loved the blue color - almost like a purpley-blue - and loved the light pattern on the outer jacket. My problem was that the shell of the XS fit the best but the XS liner was way too small; the S liner fit perfectly. If I was going to leave the liner in the jacket I probably could have gotten away with it but I usually like to put the liner to use on its own - especially if you're paying for the two jackets. Couldn't exactly swap the two liners of the jackets so I ended up returning both. I am going to buy a separate liner and shell so that I can get both to fit perfectly.
