This jacket was given to me as a gift, and I love it! I'm 5'5 and 130 pounds, athletic build, with small hips and waste. I usually wear a medium or small in shirts or jackets and 2-4 in pants. The small fits me perfectly (I like my jackets almost fitted, but not too fitted) and the long fit is great when snowboarding (and crashing) on powder days. The liner is also long and fits over my bum and snaps into your pants if you prefer it. The jacket reaches about half way down my thigh. The sleeves are plenty long, and the jacket itself is big enough to layer a fleece or down jacket underneath. I imagine the jacket will be great for spring riding, as it is breathable. On cold days, I definitely layer a fleece or down jacket underneath. The fur on the hood does zip out. There are straps inside the coat for the use of hiking, as it hangs off of your back. Lots of pockets, I really like the iPod/earphone mechanism, easy to use. Great material, snow slides off easily and doesn't dampen in wet snow.
