Rated4out of5byV SfromCute jacket that seems warmI bought this jacket online after the ski season was over so I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it seems very warm, has a classic snowboarding fit, and looks cute. However, upon trying it on the first time, I immediately noticed that it runs small (I am between XS/S and the XS was just insanely tight), is very long in terms of arm and body length (the XS was fine but the S seemed super long, though once I layered up it was okay for some reason), and the inner lining feels like really cheap fur. The pockets seem pretty well placed and the sleeves come with extra wrist fabric things with thumb holes, so that's cool. Overall it seems like a good snowboarding jacket.

Rated4out of5byPriscillaRosefromWorks wellI'm not a winter sports person, so I can't comment about this for skiing or boarding.
I have the red one & receive a lot of compliments about it's appearance.
In NW Colorado, we've been stuck in negative & single digit temperatures for the last month. I bought this right before Christmas, & it has been keeping me warm. It could be a little warmer, but I think that it being snug for me may contribute to it feeling cooler since there isn't an air pocket between my body & the coat.
