Picked this up as a insulated ski jacket for cold wet days. Pros: It generally fits well (see below); the hood fits over my helmet and is warm; the chin area works well; the shell fabric, while not Proshell grade, seems sturdy enough; the insulation is thick; the terracota color is attractive; pit zips, powder skirt, etc. Cons: the hem is too wide; it could be longer in the torso. It's my first Montbell and the quality seems high for the price - what's up with that?

If you're hung up on specs, this jacket might not be your top choice. But specs don't tell the whole story. I have gone through a few Arcteryx and Patagonia offerings and when I ordered the BA I assumed it was a step down. But I've ended up wearing it almost non-stop. It has a unique style and feel that fit my needs perfectly. This B.A. is an honest ski jacket that doesn't try to be more than it is, which is quite a lot. It's a solid product and great value for money.

This should be a no-brainer to buy but sizing has always been a problem. The old version was annoyingly small in places, especially the arm holes. The new one is way too big in places. I ordered a large and my wife and I could both fit inside. Question: Who runs the Patagonia sizing department? Patagonia should call the sizing person at Arcteryx and offer to double their salary.

I tried this and it's great except for the sideways zipper and collar. You'd have to be a pencil neck to make it work. For anyone with a normal size neck, the front collar isn't high enough so the zipperless edge ends up cutting you right under the chin. (Just looking at the picture makes me put my hand around my throat for protection!) And the collar is too tight to fit a neckwarmer underneath. The SV is even worse. Why don't they (Arcteryx) just make a normal collar?!! Otherwise terrific of course.
