5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Extra Large

After more than 7 years with my 686 coat, it was time to get a new one. During those 7 years I've rocked Roxy snowboarding pants, and since they're still going strong, I figured I'd look into a Roxy coat. The color and sleek profile initially appealed to me. Knowing Roxy runs a tad small, especially in the shoulders (and knowing I'd want room to layer underneath) I ordered an XL even though I'm more of a Large. Fit is perfect. Just enough room for layers on the coldest days, but doesn't look baggy or bulky when it's just a coat. The length is nice, too. Hits about upper thigh.

The real testament to this jacket's bomber-ness though was the first day I used it on the mountain, a warmer day that dumped 30+ inches of wet, heavy snow. I sweated like crazy working in the powder but the coat never wetted out.

I would definitely recommend this jacket. Great features: inside zippered pocket for your phone, zippered chest pocket for trail maps, chap stick or whatever, and the zippered wrist pocket gives easy access to your ID and credit card when it's time for a mid-lap beer. Powder skirt stays in place and a little ring off the right hip keeps your pass or lift ticket out of the way.
