Alex Y.wrote a review of O'Neill Jones 2L Jacket - Men's on February 23, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Bought this jacket as an upgrade to my old off-brand insulated jacket, which was always too hot.
Cons: The hood isn't removable. Attaching system is a little hokey, but functions.
Pros: Comfy material. Super dry. Vents keep me regulated really well. Plenty of pockets and options for gear storage.
I wear this with an athletic undershirt and maybe a lightweight insulated jacket unzipped. Vents usually stay open pretty regularly. The attaching system to Oneill pants is just three button swoops. Makes undressing when you go inside a bit of a pain, but it does its job. You shouldn't be inside anyways if you are wearing this.
Pockets and more pockets. 1-2... 6 external pockets, 2 inner pockets that I have found so far, and a phone holder in the upper left external pocket with headphone hole. I generally don't carry a ton of stuff with me on the mountain because I fall a lot, so I don't see why someone would want to carry around a spare lens or goggles in this unless they were done riding.
The little things aside, this jacket kept me warm and dry. I really like the idea of the vents so I am not completely unzipping my jacket. The front face guard is a good height for me and the zipper is covered from being abrasive. Good adjust-ability in the pull cords, though I did not like how they come into the bottom side pockets when you tighten up.
Overall pretty good jacket. Warmer than I expected a shell to be. Too many little things that annoyed me to give it a 5 star. I will probably buy another Oneill jacket when this one reaches its useful life end.
