You don't care about bad weather when it comes to your ski day, and neither does the Volcom Women's Decca Gore-Tex 2L Insulated Jacket. Its Gore-Tex fabric gives this jacket guaranteed waterproof protection and breathability that keeps you comfortable in the burliest conditions. The 60g insulation brings a bit of warmth that's ideal for late fall and early spring, so be sure to layer up when the frigid temps come around. The V-Science breathable lining system blocks out stormy weather and ensures you are at the prime level of comfort when your ride gets intense.

An EQS fit gives the Decca a street-style look that slims up the sleeves and body for a more feminine fit. Mesh-lined zipper vents let out some steam when you work up a sweat. The powder skirt zips to Volcom's jackets in order to completely seal out the worst conditions, and the hood cinches tightly across your forehead to protect you from snowfall. The V-Science cuff system softly retains all that wonderful warmth, and the hem cinches tightly across your waist to ensure the jacket doesn't ride up your body when you bomb down big hills with toasty delight.

Terrible Fit for a Snowboard Jacket

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

The jacket is a beautiful cornflower blue color. There's a lot of pockets and it seems like a well thought out jacket. The quality is definitely there.

However, my one gripe with this jacket is the fit. WOW. It is not Women's sizing. I think they need to specify that it is a Junior's size. I'm a S 99% of the time. But this time the small was a little too small. No room to layer (not even a thin sweater). Chest area very tight (I'm a 32B... it shouldn't be tight), shoulders had no mobility and the jacket basically shrink wrapped my hips. Even if it is the EQS fit, I think a snowboard jacket would have SOME room.

Pretty Jacket

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought a pink, large for my wife.

My wife is 5'9'' and it's true to size as my wife is a bit skinny. It allows some layers for cold days. She hasn't tried it yet in ski field but I'm sure the jacket will do its job. Great price for goretex jacket.

It looks very nice and will stand out in the white. She loves the colour. Girls love pink :)

Hi - I'm thinking of buying this for my...

Hi - I'm thinking of buying this for my snowboarding daughter. She's already 5'5" and likely to grow another inch or two and skinny... would the medium swamp her?

I'm 5'5" as well, skinny/athletic build and medium is what I would order this jacket it. Large enough to layer underneath, but not so huge that I'd be swimming in it if I wore it alone. She may outgrow it in a few seasons, but I do think medium would be the right call.

As always thanks for the info/advice. ...

As always thanks for the info/advice.

In terms of temps, I was unclear and should have mentioned I was talking Celsius.

-25F is a little colder than I need, if this coat can hold up in temps of 0-5F with a nice baselayer, than this is the coat for me!!

Thanks again, Lisa

Look forward to ordering this set and hitting the hill!!


Always glad to help!

For this jacket to use with just a base-layer, you'll want an expedition weight base layer. No silk weights or light weights at those temps. Keep in mind, only you know how your body regulates temperate and if your running cold that it's just as important to make sure you eat and consume drink while adding additional layers.

Yeah when recommending apparel at -25F one of the large factors is your level or activity / aerobic output. If you are being sedentary at -25F then no jacket will keep you toasty warm. If you're touring or snowshoeing or hiking at -25F then you won't need as much insulation as your body will be consuming large quantities of calories to produce heat.

While insulation at a low temperature is incredible one thing to keep in mind is that staying warm with a jacket is as much about stopping the penetration of wind as it is insulation.

Thanks for your response Jared, I had my...

Thanks for your response Jared, I had my eye on the Volcom Species Stretch Pant, in Blk or Sparrow.

I have another question regarding the coat, I live where the weather can get quite extreme, would you recommend this coat for colder weather? I wouldn't be skiing in extreme conditions, but would want my coat to keep me warm in almost every situation.......coldest, I am talking -25, ski in nothing more than -10/15......would this still be a good choice?


Glad to help out!

In terms of color combos:

Jacket (VLC99WR) : Glacier Blue

Pants (VLC9A0I): Sparrow (Black is a great alternative, but I'm digging the sparrow combined with the Glacier Blue jacket!!!)

In terms of -25F I think this jacket won't be able to keep up. If you are one of the rare females that has the ability to produce a lot of heat and I mean A LOT, then you'll need a jacket with more that 60g if your looking to wear only a t-shirt under the jacket.

60 grams of insulation is rather light. So to use as a stand alone jacket with say a t-shirt or any women's top on would be tough especially if you are like most females and don't produce tons of excess heat. A common thought process is that jackets create heat, however they don't create heat they just retain the heat your giving off.

This jacket is a great candidate for a layering system if you want to have a jacket that works down to -25 F.

I'd be looking at a synthetic mid layer to go along with a nice heavyweight base layer if -25F is what your looking to have a jacket work for.

Your talking temps in terms of Fahrenheit right?

Hope this helps and keep the questions coming if you have some!

Just wondering what colour pant would like...

Just wondering what colour pant would like the best with the glacier blue coat? Black? Sparrow?


What pants were you looking at to pair with this jacket? Knowing the pants your looking with definitely help us visualize the set up.

But pairing up with the glacier blue jacket, a nice black pant would look clean.

Solid jacket with some 2-layer gore!
