    Great Jacket. Terrible Customer Service.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 212lbs

    Got this jacket and it has a faulty zipper. I sent it back to Dynafit at my expense to look at... they decided to not do anything about it and instead sent the same jacket back to me with a condescending note titled "How to use a zipper." Now here I am with an expensive jacket that takes a dozen or more attempts to get to zip properly, definitely not okay for the conditions I purchased it for.

    Update: I reached out to them again to see what can be done about the issue with the zipper and was told that the difficulty I'm experiencing with it is "normal"... like WTF? Um... a $600 jacket that is supposed to be worn in the most adverse of ski conditions has a zipper that takes up to 5 minutes to zip up. Stay away from this company.

    Almost Perfect. Almost.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    No need to add a repetitive chorus to the accolades mentioned below except to say this is one of the best designed jackets I've worn.

    Fit is as described - It's not loose, but it allows for layering without ever feeling restrictive.

    Two things (one unimportant, one annoying):
    1. I purchased the Citrus Yotei ... Those muted photos you see above ... Yeah, no. This thing will seer your retinas.

    2. Why can't they (manufacturers) ever get the f-ing hood right? Here's the deal. The hood is one of the best designs I've ever run across in terms of mechanics. Fit is another matter. This hood is not helmet compatible.

    A few nitpicks that aren't really nitpicks.
    A) With the zipper all the way up, the circumference of the opening of the hood/collar is just wide enough to fit my face without feeling uncomfortable. As a result, the hood's visor is pulled against the back of my head. There's no play (extra room for my face) whatsoever in the design. It works so long as I am NOT wearing a helmet.

    B) The Hood. It's almost as if the designers chose the smallest friggin' helmet they could find and figured, "yep, good enough!" With the jacket zipped up just below my chin, I can pull the hood over my helmet. Mechanically, again, it's a thing of beauty. The hood perfectly conforms to my helmet and the visor actually works. I wear a large Giro Range Mips that is supposed to be "low profile." As long as I DO NOT zip up past my chin, the hood will cover my helmet. However, even at this stage, mobility is restricted — the jacket pulls up at the neckline/shoulders and pulls back reducing my face-space significantly. If I zip up the jacket all the way, the collar becomes very tight around my face. The shoulders lift even further, restricting head movement to a degree that's almost laughable.

    C) With a helmet on and the hood down, that visor that gets pulled against the back of my head when the collar is fully zipped actually gets in the way of the back of my helmet and prevents the collar from even covering my mouth or nose.

    It's worth noting that I rarely ski with my hood up. But this design leaves so little room, that even wearing it for protection against the elements while wearing a helmet would leave my face mostly exposed because I can't comfortably zip it past my chin.

    The hood would be perfect if there was an inch more fabric in the circumference and an inch (maybe two) in depth. Which would make this jacket absolutely ideal ... for people who don't have grapefruit-sized heads.

    Despite this, the Yotei's hood, while not even close to being perfect, is the best mechanical solution I've yet found. Just wish I could wear it over my helmet AND protect my face when the weather decides to throw a tantrum on an ascent.

    Great Lightweight Option

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This jacket is a great Gore-Pro option for lightweight touring. The articulation and fit is executed exactly as I would desire and the construction is minimal on pocket and zipper usage to get you where you're going without the excess packing weight.

    The two skin chest pockets are generous in size and work great for the intended purpose, but tend to be over sized when used for anything else.

    I also noticed the sizing ran a bit large, not what I would have expected from Dynafit, but still worked great for me.

    Solid Resort / Touring Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    If you've got questions about this jacket, definitely contact me.

    I've been using this jacket between the resort and in the backcountry. It's been pretty great.

    The Gore-Tex C Knit has been pretty good so far. The breathability hasn't been an issue, so I'd say since I don't really notice anything that it's working pretty well.

    I'd peg this to fit like more Euro brands as I'm normally a Medium in American brands and a Large in Euro brands. The chest measurements for the Large are pretty spot on. The waist measurements seem off. I'm a 33" waist and the Large waist seems totally fine.

    The two chest pockets are clutch. I store my goggles in one and my gloves in the other when heading up the tram or when they need to be stored in an easily accessible spot. Inside the main left chest pocket is another smaller pocket. Nicely for smaller items. Then there is a left bicep pocket where I store my RFID pass.

    Starting the main zipper at the bottom is a bit of a PITA but once it goes then it is good.

    Wrist Gaiters:
    These are nice but I don't use them a ton as my gloves are a bit tighter and it's not fun having both the gaiters and gloves on at the same time. Maybe with a different pair of gloves.

    Helmet compatible and real adjustable. Nice for tightening the hood when skinning up in rough conditions.

    All-in-all it's a pretty rad jacket that performs great.

    If you've got questions about this jacket and the bibs, let me know I'll gladly help you out.

    Solid Resort / Touring Jacket

    Does it all!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I recently brought this jacket to Antarctica for 2 weeks of ski touring. During that time I encountered every type of weather you can imagine. From full on blizzards to 6000 vert tours under the scorching sun this was the only jacket I needed to stay warm and dry or just be protected from the wind. Completely waterproof but breathes well and is lightweight. The fit is perfect and I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who participates in outdoor activities!

    Does it all!

    Sick jacket for touring and resort

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    As a skier on a budget, I want to invest in ONE jacket that can do it all- from hucking off a 14er here in CO to Sundays hanging in the lot at A-basin. This is that jacket. With it's ultra durable 3L Gore-Tex, this jacket has been awesome so far in the early season. It has a modern, freeride fit (loose) but still keeps it's heritage in a being a slightly tailored jacket from a European brand. This is totally on trend to match how skiers want to tour and feel: freedom of movement and look great while crushing. The color is on point, and as the previous reviewer mentioned is slightly darker. I can't wait to take this jacket big mountain touring and heli skiing this winter in Canada! At $599 bucks, this jacket is a total investment.

    Blue Tone is a little darker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    The Blue isn't as soft as it appears in the product photo. It is a little darker as can be seen in the "Connections" film Trailer below.

    This jacket is designed to have a looser fit, more of a free ride cut without being a super baggy fit. It is designed for an active user with its focus on breathability and ability to tour.
