I purchased this coat early season and now have about 20 days of lift served snowboarding with it. All-in-all, pretty stoked on the function, fit, and quality.
Bad: Let's get this out of the way first. Very minor complaint but with the waist cinched tight using the draw cord, the bottom few inches of the coat (from the end to the powder skirt) will flip up on the chairlift and you'll need to push it back down before every run. Performance wise not a problem, but aesthetically, gotta look good to feel good. The real complaint I have for the bad is the hood. You have to zip up the main zipper all the way to get it over your helmet and the fit with my Smith Variance is so tight, you can't turn your head with the hood on rendering it pretty useless. I have a SHRED helmet that allows a little more mobility but not enough. The hood has a draw string on the closure so I would imagine you can get it fitted without a helmet but I never ride without one so not sure about that. I've removed the hood from my coat but I would love to have one. Lastly, the cuffs on the sleeves have a zippered closure/adjustment and the system to keep snow out relies heavily on the use of the thumb loops. Maybe my gloves are to short or to long (DAKINE Leather Titan Gore-Tex) but I find they work their way out of the coat if tucked in or bunch up around the wrist with the coat tucked in the glove. Either way, it's more of a nuisance since as long as you use the thumb holes, nothing gets in.
Good: From top to bottom, this is a nicely designed piece once you ditch the removable hood. The mouth and neck area is fleece lined to so it's soft on the skin. The armpit vents run just above the elbow all the way to kidneys really allowing you to fine tune the amount of ventilation. I'm cold natured so always bundled up and I wear this coat with a thermal baselayer and mid-layer and ususally run the vents half open and sweating. I'm sure with the insulation of this jacket I can forgo one of those layers but I never want to risk it. The powder skirt fits great and does a great job of keeping out the powder, more on that later. ALL THE POCKETS! 2 waterproof zippered chest, 2 waterproof zippered waist (fleece lined), one zippered inside with media hole, 2 large netted pockets inside for storing gloves or goggles, and one waterproof zippered on the sleeve with goggle wipe. I find this a great spot for a lift ticket to avoid the humping of the gate. :)
Fit: I'm 6'0, 170lbs, 34" inseam (long arms), 31" waist and originally went with the large as usually sleeves are to short for me and I was worried about not being able to use the thumbholes. I ended up swapping it out for a Medium which turns out to be like a tailored fit. The sleeves (thumbholes) are perfect, the length is good, and it fits great in the chest with or without a mid-layer. The powder skirt has 2 adjustments which appear to be for 30" waist or 32". I'm on the larger of the two settings and could do the smaller, but it doesn't need to be that snug.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would likely buy this coat again. The fit, warmth, and features win over the shortcomings of the hood.
