I am really happy with this purchase. It's low profile design is nice, and its pretty warm for being so light in weight. Burton runs a little small on me, but the sizing on this jacket is similar to all other Burton outwerwear. Mobility through the shoulders is good, and the hood is actually more functional than most. The removeable powder skirt somehow seems to add a lot of extra bulk, so if you want to keep it and you plan on layering, size up.

I ordered several snowboarding jackets from several sites prior to landing on this one. It is sturdy and light - and I love the color (yellow safari). I am new-ish to snowboarding - I will be easy to spot as i am falling down the mountain. Actually, this jacket is fairly lightweight so sweating will be somewhat mitigated (which is what i was looking for)- very stylish - good design. Layers will be necessary on colder days. The only issue I have with Burton jackets is their under-arm zippers are very stiff - so when zipped you definitely feel them. Unzipped, not an issue...

I was really excited to get this jacket for the upcoming winter. Unfortunately, it was lighter weight than expected and was not roomy enough to wear layers underneath. At 5'9" and 140, medium is always what I find to fit best, but this was a slim fitting medium. I would have just gotten a size up to be able to layer with, but the front hand pockets were the biggest disappointment with the jacket. The pocket openings sit closer to the center zipper of the jacket than typical, so they were about half the depth of other Burton Jackets I have worn, and barely fit my whole hand in the pocket. In addition to that, the pockets have an exposed metal zipper, with no wind flap, which I found to be too cold and rough, and impractical in the snow.
