Get on up.
The CLWR Up Women's Parka doesn't actually have built-in anti-gravity doodads to help you go bigger--those are coming next year—but it does have the style and technology to keep you crushing the mountain from first bell to last. It's got a super clean and straightforward look that's classy without being boring, and all the features you need to stay dry and warm on the hill, like a Dewtech 10K waterproof and breathable membrane, fully taped seams, and 60g of synthetic insulation. That's just the beginning though, because the Up also rocks mesh-lined underarm vents that'll cool you off in a jiffy if you're hiking for powder or lapping the park, a removable powder skirt to keep you dry on snorkel-deep days, and Lycra thumbhole cuffs to keep snow and drafts from sneaking up your sleeves. It's hard to believe a jacket that looks this good has that much tech, but it's true.

- Q & A
Comfy, Relaxed Jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I bought this as I was looking for another skiing jacket. It's definitely on the larger size - both large and long. I'm sure the medium would fit, but I like the longer length and it gives me room to totally move around, layer, and carry brews :) The zipper on the first jacket I got would unzip from the bottom as I was skiing - I was able to return it to Backcountry and get a new one within a week. Always great customer service! I like the look of this jacket, all of the pockets, and haven't seen anyone on the slopes with it yet. I'll be on the lookout for other CLWR gear.
Powder Skirt too short
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
My boyfriend ordered this coat as an early Christmas gift as the weather was turning cold. I must say, I wear it every day. I ordered the green coat in a size S (as that is what the measurements said I would need). It fits me wonderfully in the shoulders which I always have trouble with generally, the sleeves are the right length, and the over sized hood is fantastic. The bottom pockets are pretty big, which is nice and can hold my wallet, keys, and phone without feeling like I've got saddle bags. I love the secret zipper pocket. It's great to hold my ID, money, phone, and it has a hole for ear buds. The Lycra thumb holed sleeves are comfortable and help to prevent snow from going up your sleeve. I also like that it has draw strings around your waist that you can pull in just a bit to have a waist again. The color is a little lighter than pictured, but not by much. I also like the fact it has two zippers, so I can unzip part of the bottom to give me more movement.
My only issue with this coat is the powder skirt. The rest of the coat fits wonderfully, but the powder skirt doesn't fit correctly. My first fall while snowboarding, it road up and pulled my layers up with it. I ended up unbuttoning it all together as it was useless and annoying to deal with. I would suggest going a size up if you are worried about the powder skirt, but if you are using this just for every day wear, don't worry about going a size up.
All in all, I love this coat, it would be my favorite coat I've owned so far. I do wish the green was a darker green rather than the kind of yellow green and I wish the powder skirt fit better. (Isn't long enough)
- Size Bought: Small
Bought this coat then returned it:( everything about the coat was great except for the back went almost down to the back of your knees way too long and weird. Bummed because the color style and all was perfect.
CLWR up Parka
I havent had the chance to put this through the ringer yet - but my initial impression of the look/style of this jacket is awesome! i love the length and as mentioned in the comment below, i also love to layer underneath and the M is perfect for that! i am a little shorter so it is longer but that's the style i prefer.
I love the navy blue color- i usually wear black so this is a great pop to my outwear collection! :)
Just enough pockets to carry anything you need so you dont leave anything behind. Once i start wearing it in the different climate conditions the mountain will bring- i will add on to this review!
This jacket is almost perfect!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I wanted to wait until I had used this jacket enough to write a full review. At first try on, I really liked the fit, I ordered the Bottle Green in a Medium because I like to layer up underneath to stay toasty on the slopes! I am 5'4'', about 130 lbs and not busty, there is definitely enough room to wear a few layers underneath with the Medium. It is pretty long in the back, but I kind of love it that way.
The front two pockets are AWESOME! I have been keeping a flask in one for a few weeks now, for chairlift toasts with friends! One of these pockets will even fit two cans of brew if you were wondering (not as easy to move around with in such case, but drink em fast and you're good to go!). I also just discovered a pocket on the right chest, at the seam of where you zip the jacket which is perfect for cell phone storage.
Now the one flaw I have found, which has caused a little frustration - the sleeves. They don't fit over the bottom of any of my mittens, which to me is a pretty big design flaw. I have to literally wrestle the sleeve over the ends of them. Luckily for myself I am a sewing whizz and plan to cut a slit and sew in some stretchy fabric to make that sleeve fit over my mittens. Just thought I would note that here for anyone who would find this a pain in the a$$ like I do.
Overall, definitely stoked on this jacket! I have included a picture to show the length, please don't judge my insane Pizza skills as I am naturally a snowboarder :)
Way too big
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: medium
I ordered a medium and I am swimming it in.
Will bottle green size medium be restocked any time soon?
Looks like we have one left in the Bottle Green size Medium right now! But we unfortunately do not have any more on order at this time.
I am 5'7" and weight 130. Will a medium be too small?
Will size Small for Shock Pink restock?
As of right now we unfortunately do not have any more of the Pink/Small ordered to come in. Sorry about that!
