Nice. Dry.

    Overall this is a very nice jacket. It fits well and isn’t super boxy like a lot of ski jackets. Enough room to layer comfortably. As a snowboarder I like the skirt because I sit every lift to strap in and it keeps my mid-layer dry. The hood is helmet compatible and really fits. I have not been in any major inclement weather but it held up well to a rain/snow day on the mountain this year. My only complaint is that the neck feels a little narrow and restrictive and too close to my face when fully zipped. I prefer a more technical jacket with an integrated hood for this reason. I am 6 foot 170 lbs and the medium is a great fit.

    Killer Jacket

      I got this for mainly touring shell layer and It is a dream, I am 5'10", 165, and the large is the perfect style and size to layer a large puffy underneath, or just wear as a shell over a baselayer is the winds are bad. also will roll and stuff into a bag, equating to roughly the size of the liter and a half nalgenes.

      Slim Fit High Quality Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      I took this skiing at Heavenly and Kirkwood in Tahoe for 2 days. At Heavenly there was tons of powder and it was snowing for most of the day. This jacket kept me dry and the seals on the pockets worked. The snow bib was effective as well. I didn't try the hood.

      I am 5'10 160 with an athletic build and perpetually in between a small and a medium for most brands. I like a slim, form-fitting jacket and this one (small) was cut just how I like it. I really like Marmot and Patagonia but their jackets are too bulky on me, particularly around the waist. The Arcteryx Iser is good for body types similar to mine. Mammut and Spyder make some jackets that will fit as well.

      I was aiming for a brightly colored jacket for a little style, but this one in black is actually quite sharp. It accents well with my white marmot palisades pants and white smith ski helmet.

      Overall I highly recommend this jacket for its features and style. I'm assuming at this price point it will last forever.

      Great review, Jonathan! We really appreciate the fit information.

      This is a very good jacket

      First impression: It is very light and absolutely wind-proof. I think it is also good for everyday casual dressing in winter. (I live in Philadelphia) I usually ski at the Blue Mountain resort in PA. I may update this comment after I go skiing with my friends.

      FYI, it is athletic fit which means it may be a little tight for a person with a big belly. But for me, it is true to size and fit perfectly with a small size Atom LT Hooded mid-layer inside.

      Great Shell

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      This jacket has gotten me through a lot so far this season. Keeps me dry when the powder is deep and warm when it is windy. This thing is bulletproof.

      Although this is described as a slim fitting jacket, I am able to easily fit an Arc'teryx Fortrez hoodie and a Patagonia Nano Air mid layer underneath. This combination has kept me comfortable in a variety of conditions.

      Nothing fancy here, just a great shell that does what it needs to do.

      Perfectly simple
