Get away with something powdery.

Skiing waist-deep pow feels so good that it has to be illegal somewhere, but your desire to keep making pow-laps will sharply diminish if you don't have the proper jacket to keep you dry—enter the Sweet Protection Men's Jailbreak Jacket. Made with a three-layer Gore-Tex shell, a classic look, and all the protection you need whether you're shredding your secret stashes from your favorite chairlift or venturing deep into the backcountry for completely untracked lines. When you are hoofing it those hard to reach lines, open up the underarm vents to let some cool air enter, then zip 'em up, pull on the helmet-compatible hood, and lock the hem and cuffs down for snow-tight seal once you're ready to drop into another sinfully delicious powder run.

I'm 6'4 (192 cm) and 185lbs with an athletic build - what size would you recommend? I normally wear Large (mostly Arcteryx, Black Diamond) but I hear Sweet Protection may run a bit small.

Hey David - I would recommend you go with the Large in this Sweet Protection Jailbreak Jacket based on your size measurements. I am 6'1", 185 lbs. and Large fit me best in this jacket and it is a longer cut too. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
