This jacket out performs any hardshell ive owned in the past. OR really reduced the amount of material in the arms of this jacket (Compared to last years White Room Jacket), making for better mobility and less bulk. The light weight and superior breathability of this jacket is unlike any piece of gear i've ever tested, and it allows you to skin to the summit and ski down without stopping to put on or take off layers.. Im stoked to see if this jacket has the durability to hold up for years to come. Im 5'10 160, I like my snowboard gear a little big so I went with a Large and love the fit. Its a little long on the arms but the jacket hangs nice and low to make up for no powder skirt.
