Best jacket ever!
This is the 5th jacket I've bought/used and it is the best one so far. Great on sunny days and even better when it's freezing cold. Love the styling and magnetic button pockets/zip thingy. Goes well with Burton transmission pants!

Warm, Waterproof, Stylin'
I've worn it on the mountain one day - a 10deg day at Crystal with the wind just howling, and I was just a touch cold. But I was only wearing a silkweight capilene underneath. The length is good, the fit is nice (I'm 6'4" 195 and bought a large) - not drowning in fabric like most snowboarding coats. Plenty of pockets like all Burton coats. The only drawback I found was that the hood wasn't quite helmet compatible (but my Smith helmet's a bit big). I disagree that the sleeves need velcro. The jacket has these faux shirt sleeves in it. You can cinch your gloves on the shirt sleeves and the coats naturally falls over the gaiters on your gloves. Maybe for the slimmer park gloves it's not ideal, but for my Burton toasters it's perfect. The mocha is not solid, but rather a pinstripe of khaki and mocha. My wife and her two girlfriends gave the color and styling a thumbs up.

Very comfortable and warm. Great style!! It should have velcro on the sleeves.

Hot sleepers, you are warned
This is the best made coat I have owned. Great details, durable fabric, great styling. Little details like the zippers on the ends of the sleeves that make it easier to put your sleeves over your gloves. That said, it was too warm for me. I run really hot, and live in Seattle, where temps are generally pretty mild on the hill. It did come in handy on a 6 degree day at Crystal. I wore this over a T-shirt and was good all day.
