I've been skiing and enjoying the mountains with this jacket every day for 4 weeks - downhill in resort, a little backcountry, nordic, hiking, you name it. It's great. I love the way the fabric is a bit stretchy and moves with me. I love the full length pit zips feature and the big front pockets that are easily accessible even with my backpack on and while sitting on a lift. On a cold day, I wear my puffy jacket under it, and it's perfect. Held up well in full snow and blustery wind yet lightweight enough for a sunny, blue sky day too. Was surprised the sleeve ripped so easily with a close encounter with a tree, but perhaps that was just my bad luck. Was fairly easy to patch.
