Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wind proof, warm, lightweight, what's not to like? I wore this jacket skiing in 30 degree weather with a stiff wind. On the first ride up the chair lift I wasn't wearing a hat, and, of course, got cold instantly. I immediately pulled the hood over my head and was amazed it completely blocked out the wind and, since the rest of my apparel was also wind proof, I didn't feel cold at all. It's a little weird hearing the wind howl about you and not feel a bit of it. I bought this jacket to replace a 20+ years old ski jacket that was getting uncomfortably heavy and bulky. This one was just as warm but didn't make me feel like the Michelin man. Awesome jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Coat I'm sort of a coat connoisseur. Other girls have their purses or shoes, I have jackets and coats. I bought this one for a ski trip I took with my family this winter, so I waited to write this review until after the trip to really see how it worked out as a ski coat. I was very pleased! At home I wore this coat with just a t-shirt sometimes and it kept me warm from the wind. The Omni-Heat thermal reflective lining (it looks like tin-foil in a cool sort of way) works really well to keep in body warmth. One thing I was insistent on having in my ski coat was a powder skirt. I had never used one before, so I have nothing to compare to, but I thought this one worked great. This coat has five pockets and I used all of them skiing! The pocket on the left fore-arm is perfect for a ski pass or goggles cloth. The cuffs are very comfortable and with the Velcro closures the sleeves are small enough to go inside of the gantlet of my TNF Powderflo Etip gloves (another great buy). The only downside I've found is that the hand warmer portion of the cuffs connects to the inside of the sleeves making it so that I couldn't pull the coat sleeves over my snow gloves if I had wanted to, they have to go inside. It would probably work better if you have shorter gloves, like liners or work gloves. Also, when I pull my arms out of the sleeves the hand warmer stays on my hand and inverts itself into the coat sleeve. Sort of like when you take off a long sleeved shirt and the sleeves end up inside out. This meas that next time I go to put my arms back into the coat sleeves I have to push through the hand warmers to get them out of the sleeves. It's a small inconvenience to me that the rest of the coat more than makes up for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and nicely fitted This coat is nicely fitted, and not baggy, it is an attractive coat, and is sort of dark grayish patterned, which I like--not pure black. The hand holes are not a huge deal, I never used them, I would just put my wrist through fabric's opening. My only complaint is that when I would zip the XS up all the way, it would choke me. It is too small around the neck. This may only be an issue with the XS though. For the price, I am not sure I care. I would like to take is down a mountain though to see if it really bothers me. I will report back as soon as I do so. For reference, I am 5'6, 120 lbs and have a size 32 rib cage, and I bought an XS. I'd say, for the price, get it. It's very very warm. I didn't have to wear but a tank top underneath to keep my body at a good temp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent snow jacket This medium-weight jacket was perfect on a week's winter trip to Lake Tahoe in January recently. It was comfortable for high-activity snow-shoeing during 25-35 degree days, whether it was sunny or snowing. And the somewhat fitted styling and heather patterned black finish made it attractive for wearing to dinner and a day on the town. The reflective lining kept me warm but not too hot, even though I wore it over two other light winter layers.

Between what temperatures can be worn(max&min)?

Asked by: Me8
We do not provide temperature ratings on clothing because warmth depends on so many different variables including activity level, metabolism, perspiration as well as the other clothing layers you are wearing.
