Rated5out of5byEgull snowboarderfromSuper WarmIm in north NJ. I picked this jacket up about 2 weeks ago and Im glad I did. The temps dropped and its been snowing. Im a snowboarder and I was looking for something to be able to wear pretty much anywhere. I wasnt really looking for a riding jacket but I guess if I wanted to, I could use this. Anyway, This jacket is surprisingly light weight for how warm it is. Its not bulky at all and its easy to get in and out of with layers on. When its around the mid to high 30s, all I wear under it is a tee shirt. There are enough pockets for everything. the inside zip pocket is nice for a phone or something if its snowing or raining. It does have a goggle pocket on the inside so it makes sense that you could use this for riding but it doesnt have pit zips which as warm as this jacket is, you would need them if you intend to hit the mountain. Ive been using it pretty much every day since I got it because its been so cold out. It does well in the snow as the collar is really high and the hood is insulated. Falling snow slides right off of it. The one gripe I have is that the hood buttons come off a little too easy. If you're carrying the jacket around indoors or something and pull it the wrong way, the hood will pop off. But this is a minor problem. I think the large buttons are nice looking which is why I wear this more as a casual jacket. Im very happy with this buy

Rated5out of5bycmreviewsfromI'm definitely a fanI loved the design of this jacket. I was very please with the comfort and quality of it as well. Fits great; just enough room for an under layer but not too loose without it. Lots of cool pockets of all kinds: hide away, zippered, non-zippered, soft microfiber-like lined, buttoned, etc.
Although I won't get to try it out for a few months, it appears to have a great waterproof material. Also a great thickness for warmth but not too hot. I can't wait to use it.

Rated5out of5byscottg23fromMuch warmer than expectedI bought this jacket to replace my casual\work coat. I must say it is warmer than the coat it replaces, but breathes. I don't die of heat going into stores but it blocks wind and retains heat well. Meant for layering. Fits true to size or slightly large

Rated5out of5bymasaichisanfromGreat JacketGot this jacket for it's looks. Haven't been able to test it out in the rain, but it definitely keeps me warm. I wear it to work and out around town. The collar does feel a bit tall for my liking, but it may prove to be nice to have at times.
