Off fit but solid jacket


I've taken this jacket out touring and to the resort now. The jacket itself is great and I like how you can vent it. That said...the fit is just weird. The waist fits like a men's jacket (no hips for the ladies?) And the sleeves ARE long like previous reviewers have said (I have a 6 ft wing span though so I'm making it work).



New favorite ski jacket


Packs down in your pack when the weather is good and fits over every layer you have when the weather is turns. I love the side zips to ventilate when working hard. The sleeves and body are long enough. Very waterproof and Greta for all outdoor activities.



Great outer layer


As others mentioned the sleeves are a bit long and bulky. But that does not outweigh the good features. This jacket is lightweight and not loud and crinkly like other hard shells. Plus lots of pockets!



Annoying underarm zipper


I don't notice crazy-long arms as others have mentioned, but the ventilation zipper by my left armpit rubs against the main part of the coat every time I move my arm. It is so annoying. There's this feeling that something is catching all the time. I wore it snowboarding for the first time today and have no other big complaints. I do wish there was an inside zippered pocket though. Not love at first wear.

Sleeves are too long


The design and fabric of this jacket are awesome, but the sleeves are too long. When I purchased it this had not been mentioned in previous reviews. Hoping I can save some ladies the disappointment. Would have been a great jacket for backcountry skiing.

arms for a monkey


I was so looking forward to this jacket. It had all the features I wanted. Then when I tried it, I couldn't believe it. The sleeves were so long, I think they're cut for a mens jacket. I normally take a small or medium, but this med. was snug around my hips, not allowing for much additional layers. Had to return, unfortunately.



Well done


Good jacket. Had the M had to get the L to be able to layer
