I have been researching mid-layer ski jackets inside and out, this is ultimately what I settled on. It serves its purpose, but I don't absolutely love it. The sleeves are too long, which means I can't use the thumb holes. The thumbholes are also not very comfortable - just a big hole sewn into the end of the cuff rather than one of those more slick hidden thumbholes. The seam tape is stiff and scratchy - it doesn't look finished well either. There are no hip pockets which I thought I could live with but it really limits the usability of this jacket to being worn under other jackets (ie: can't throw on for running errands as easily). The one breastpocket has a TEENSY TEENSY zipper that is hard to grab even with bare hands. I'll keep it but I wouldn't repurchase it.
