Taking design cues from classic motorcycle jackets, the Holden Women's Moto Insulated Jacket fuses fashionable style with on-snow function for riding at the resort and après wear at your favorite downtown venue. Toasty-warm 60g polyfill insulation keeps you pleasantly warm through sub-freezing temperatures and brisk winter conditions. Detailed with high-quality fabrics, the Moto Insulated Jacket features a soft, wool-like body, with contrast Micro Oxford arms that move naturally without restriction.
Its sleek polyester face sheds wet snow and deep powder, thanks to its high-performance, solvent-free laminate underneath. The PFOA-free DWR treatment ensures high levels of water repellency, all without the use of toxic chemicals. Fully taped seams prevent moisture from seeping through the jacket's tiniest seams for comfortably dry wear, even when it's dumping sideways in the mountains. Zippered underarm vents quickly expel excess heat when on warmer spring days and strenuous hikes. Additionally, there's a wide variety of pockets, including a media pocket with cord routing, for storing small snacks, riding accessories, and your smartphone/media player.

This jacket is one of my favorite looking jackets I have ever had! It is so cute and the zipper details are adorable. I love this jacket for the average weather days. I have to for sure keep the Velcro done up for functional reasons but that doesn't bother me at all.
Looks great, but not functional

If you don't care to have some of the features that I deem important this jacket could very well be a 5 star, but for me unfortunately it will not work. I ordered this under the impression it had wrist gaiters as promised and more pockets as shown. The wrist "gaiter" is only a zipper, there is nothing fitted inside the sleeve to prevent snow from coming in as I hoped, and no velcro (but I knew about that from the pictures). The pocket on the breast is so small it is unusable, and the one on the lower right hand in the front is actually fake! So this leaves 2 hand pockets.. and I don't know about you but with gloves on I only have room for my hands in those pockets, nothing else. The "multi media" pocket is a internal zip near the external main zipper... for me a multi media pocket is something that I can drop my phone in, a vertical opening leaves room for a phone to easily fall out, if I want to quickly grab my phone to change a song or snap a picture there is no way I could handle the little zipper without taking my gloves off.
With this being said it is a great looking and feeling jacket. The braided leather on the zipper is a nice detail, and the side snaps look nice even if they are not functional (another draw back). Clearly a man designed this... or maybe a woman who doesn't go to the slopes and needs to carry gear with her. But for someone who doesn't care about this stuff and maybe leaves most everything in the lodge this could be a killer jacket.
