Eve Cohenwrote a review of Backcountry Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket - Women's on December 2, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
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.
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
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
