Why We Built The Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket

With the Rustler Jacket, we set out to achieve the pinnacle piece for all-weather protection, equally at home earning turns or riding free refills at the resort. We gave it powerful Gore-Tex protection to keep us dry on the deepest days, and articulated, stretchy construction to make every slash of powder effortless. For those longer days exploring away from the lifts, we graced the Rustler with a chest pocket large enough for a radio, and a unique design that includes a secondary zip at the neck for hood expansion and additional venting. And, not to leave any stone unturned, we insulated the phone pocket so that we'll always have a soundtrack for the ride down.

I love this jacket. It fits really well and works great with backcountry skiing and resort skiing. I ordered a size M. The Darkest Spruce is a beautiful color. So far I have zero complaints!!

Giving one star because the colors and price are great. I ordered this in two sizes because the color I wanted wasn't available in Medium so I figured I'd try S & M in a different color, knowing the S would be wishful thinking based on other reviews. I tried the M first and knew right away the jacket is NOT designed for someone with a bust (and if you refer to their model and the fit video, I should have known better - no curves whatsoever). It was super tight through the bust and shoulder / upper arms. I'm a 34G but otherwise, I typically fit a small or medium - I have Patagonia & Norrona all in S or M. The jacket was also really stiff - I know that's due to the Gore-tex but it felt more stiff than other gore-tex jackets. Total bummer that Backcountry hasn't designed a better fitting jacket because their colors and price are on point.

This jacket’s features and style are awesome. If it weren’t for the strange fit I would have been in love. I’m a 32DDD. The medium jacket was baggy in the top, tight in the hips, and the arms were so long they were past my finger tips. Like one reviewer said, it bunched funny under my arms and was uncomfortable due to the excess material. I tried a small hoping it would be shorter and it was not. However it fit great on the top half. If I bunched it up over my butt it would work fine, but It’s just too much money to spend on something that fits so poorly. I wish backcountry would be able to provide garment measurements, or a more accurate size chart.

Eat your zippers, no more!

My favorite thing about this jacket is that the zipper is off center. I love when it's cold, and I hunker on down into the neck of the jacket that there's not a zipper right there, acting like a snack. Excellent shell, keeps me dry in all sorts of weather. Other people have noted that the sleeves are long, but I really like that part of the fit. The pockets are great, I especially like the higher sleeve pass pocket. There are two things that I would change if I could though. First, I would add wrist gaiters. Who doesn't love the ability to help keep snow out of your sleeves? Second, I'm a snowboarder and I ride regular, so when I'm trying to vent myself on a warmer day, with the way the zippers are set up, this flaps right back in my face and doesn't stay open. If I was goofy, I'd be golden. Literally the only two things I would change on it though!

An all-around great ski jacket. Love the neckline. Sleeves are slightly long, otherwise it would be a five star jacket. Highly recommend.

based on the description and some of the reviews I was really excited for this jacket. However, the fit was WAY off for me. I am consistently a size M (8) shirt (34DD) and 10 pants and have size M or L jackets based on their purpose. I tried a large so I could layer underneath. It fit over my hips, which is usually the trouble spot for me with jackets so I didn't expect this to be so snug through the armpits and chest. The fabric, detailing, pockets and length are all great but there is no way I could wear this. I tried it with a long sleeve T and there is no way I'd be able to layer as it was close to impossible for me to move my arms around. The top (shoulder chest area) felt like a size S and the bottom ( waist through hip) of the jacket was true to size.

I decided to try this jacket out with all of the effort and thoughtfulness that Backcountry put into the design. I’m happy to say it was the right decision for me! I just got back from skiing in Canada . This jacket kept me warm and dry for the entire trip! I love the hood that zips over the helmet, phone pocket, vent for the high zip(no goggle fog here), and long length of the jacket! The fit is flattering and loose enough to add a base layer and puffy underneath for extra insulation. I have wide hips & shoulders and this jacket accommodates that as well as my long torso. The only con Ive come across so far is that its hard to turn your head when the hood is up over the helmet and you have to unzip the coat to pull the hood down. I would hands down purchase this coat again. I am looking forward to taking it backcountry skiing over this next season!

I'm a relatively new skier with an endless love for deep pow, but without the skills to get down steeper runs without falling. Does this stop me from trying? No. Does this mean I need a burly jacket with the features to keep me dry while I dig myself out of waist deep snow? Yes. This jacket is warm, soft inside, and has all the functionality and amazing material that someone with my ski style demands. Pros: Soft brushed interior is WARM Vented neck and pit zips help cool you down when it's too warm Stretch GORE-TEX fabric is waterproof and comfortable to wear Plenty of pockets and storage Long length fits well around my hips, looks awesome, and feels great Cons: The overall fit seems to run really small, but the arms are long and super roomy, which feels a little strange on. I didn't notice once I started moving I had trouble taking the hood on and off over my helmet without unzipping the jacket. Not sure if this is possible with other jackets or not, but I wish it was easier. The powder skirt didn't fit as tight as previous jacket's I've worn, and slipped up during a few falls

This is the most versatile jacket you need for any and all mountain adventures. It has a sleek, clean look with heaps of technical features that will keep you riding for longer. From the asymmetrical zipper, multiple ventilation details to the intentionally-placed pockets, I can't wait to wear it all winter long. There is super soft fleece inside the top of the jacket to keep you warm and snug while you're charging down the mountain. I love that Backcountry designed this piece with Gore-Tex technology and stretch construction to make this jacket 100% waterproof, durable, and breathable. I've tested this jacket a few times and am super impressed by the quality and how warm it is! Did I mention how awesome all of the colors are?! The jacket is true to size and longer in length (which I love!). If you're in between sizes, I'd recommend sizing up for ultimate comfort.

The style/color/and details of this jacket is really great, and the 3L Goretex feels sturdy. I wish I had a chance to try it on the hill, but the fit is just so off that I'm not going to get the chance. I'm 5'3 with an athletic build, and the arms and shoulders of both the small and XS are extremely long and baggy, so that the fabric bunches up in the armpits and shoulder area and would be very restrictive and uncomfortable for skiing. Both the previous reviewer and myself are on the shorter size, so perhaps this jacket would work if you were taller. Not for me.

Was looking for something to replace my patagonia goretex jacket- I've never loved the fit of (long/large arms/chest/shoulders, and a little snug on my hips). Thought I'd give this a try after chatting with a gearhead on backcountry. The fit on this jacket is not what I expected- the arms are long and large, but somehow also snug around my shoulders/armpits. The jacket is much longer on than I expected. It's also a bit thinner than expected. Haven't tested it out yet, but considering the price, and the fact that I don't love it, I may just return. Also- I never understood why they place women's pockets over the chest... for a relatively large chested person, it's awkward to put anything in there. For reference: I usually wear a 10/12 Size 36DD, and I ordered the Large- based on the fit of the Large, an XL would have been way too large, and a M probably would have barely fit me, so I would say the L is accurate. Dark green color is beautiful in person.

I’m 5’8” and 140 lbs with a small bust. Would you recommend the small or the medium size? Also, I’d love to check out the bibs mentioned that the skirt snaps to (as mentioned in the video). Can you tell me what they are called? Thanks!

Would the rustler jacket more breathable/stretch gortex be a good fit for the wet, raw cold in New England skiing or would the cottonwood heavier shell be a better fit for my region (resort skiing and winter back packing)?

Hey Abby, That is a great question. Both jackets will be waterproof. The Cottonwoods will be more durable and less likely to have the face fabric wet out. The Rustler is more versatile, so while hiking you will feel less restricted than you may in the Cottonwoods. I would say if you are going to do more skiing than hiking, go with the Cottonwoods, and if you want a more versatile and active winter shell go with the Rustler.

This Gore-Tex jacket looks the most similar to the Kokatat full zip jacket, that I use for kayak fishing, which isn't made anymore. My question is would this jacket work well for winter kayak fishing? Does the hood just have the adjustment in the front, and not in the back? Can the hood fit tight enough for 20-30 mph winds?

Hi Judy, The jacket has an oversized fit so it will fit well over layers and is built to move so could work pretty well for kayaking. The hood is meant to fit over a helmet and has drawstrings in the front for the face opening with another pulltab in the back for the halo adjust. If you cinch it down tight enough over a helmet, the hood should stay put in those conditions. Let us know how it works! Ben
