Rated3out of5byArlissfromAwkward JacketIt's a bizarre design with lots of strange compartments. Undoubtedly, a hard sell. That said, if you like traveling with a dozen different carry items, this might be right for you.

Rated5out of5bySnowGuy1fromFantastic insulated jacketI was really surprised by the quality on this, would definitely buy it again. For the price, it has a very high water proof rating and quite good breathablity as well. The exterior material feels like quality, very durable and just overall the jacket seals very well against incoming rain/snow.
I'm 5' 7" dude, 36" chest. I had a hard time finding any insulated ski/snowboard jacket that wasn't too loose or bulky for me. This jacket in small size fits perfect; it feels pretty stylish, it's not bulky and still has room for layering, and by itself, feels warm enough for above zero degree weather.
Other nice extras: cuff gloves at the end of the sleeve that have a thumb hole, which allow you to wear gloves and completely seal out snow from going up your sleeve; a clear, interior pocket for your mp3 player, with headphone loops to manage your cords; hidden sleeve pocket which would be good for those electronic season passes; interior goggles pocket; hood is very adjustable and has an elastic pull string to cinch the hood down during windy lift rides.
Only con I can think of is that the pockets aren't that big. There's no room to stash a large sandwich!
Would recommend to anyone who is looking for an insulated jacket.
