How Bode Merrill stays dry.
Fusing street style with backcountry-worthy technology, the Billabong Men's Bodeman Jacket is what all-around phenom Bode Merrill rocks while he's setting up for insane rails in the terrain park or dropping into massive Alaskan spines. Ripstop fabric and heavy twill reinforcements give it the toughness to withstand daily abuse while plenty of technical features keep you comfortable through in blustery conditions.
While it may have the low-key look of a casual jacket, it's equipped with 20K-rated waterproofing and breathability to keep you dry through blizzard conditions without making it feel like you're wearing a trash bag. The long hem adds a boost of park-rat style and keeps your butt dry when you're sitting on the lift. A fully adjustable hood, Lycra wrist gaiters, and stretch powder skirt help seal out the elements when the snow is piling up, while underarm vents let you cool off in a hurry when you're bootpacking up to the final summit of the day.

Great fit & feel
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Full disclosure, I work for Billabong. I generally will put my gear thru the ringer and ride all conditions so I need gear that will stand up to the elements. This jacket hits on all cylinders. Technically has all you want or need in a jacket with top of the line waterproofness & breathability. Fully featured inside and out and looks great as well. The rating on this is actually 30K waterproof/20K breathable and the key element here is it is a STRETCH weave so it moves with you when riding hard. Primaloft insulation, so your will be warm and toasty, but not overheated. Love it
Are Billabong jackets sizes normally a little larger. My son normally wear a 686 size XL. When comparing size charts it seems he is a L in this brand here .
Also do you have pants that will connect to this jacket
