so durable and warm
i wear this coat for biking in the night and early mornings and it really does the job, all by itself too. i dont have to wear any layers underneath the coat in 30 degree temperatures (while moving around). it is large enough to be very protective and to do layering. but surprisingly, it is also cute. my boyfriend says i look like a princess when i wear it and my grandma is going to go buy one of her own now! for the reduced price, and the lifetime warranty included, i am very happy about my purchase. if i find cons about this coat, i will rewrite my review pronto!!

this jacket is awesome
This jacket is very stylish yet durable. It will keep you dry and warm. I used this jacket at tahoe and it was great! Everybody loved how it looked like a womens jacket.

Nice Jacket if Fits Right
Very happy with price, immediate service from Altrec and quality of garmet...waterproof, well insulated and attractive purple color. Removable hood also a nice feature. Unfortunately, the sleeves are so long (rarely a problem for my long arms) and the bottom elastic feels snug on the hips. Would recommend for a tall thin build with long limbs. Will return this one.

Great jacket...but it's purple
The Burton Tabloid is a great jacket. I tried my friend's Tabloid on the slopes and liked it's warmth (I didn't need to layer a bunch of other clothing under it) and style. I especially appreciated the slim fit and the way the jacket was a bit longer than normal, extending a few inches below my hips. After riding with my friend's jacket, I decided that I had to have one. I ordered the jacket in Royal Pain, which looked blue on the website. Upon recieving the jacket, Royal Pain is definitely purple. Other than the color, I have no complaints about this jacket.

I received this coat about a month ago in hope of replacing my 15 year old North face winter coat. At first glance I fell head over heals in love with the "Olive green" color - It happens to be even more lovely in person. As far as fit goes, I am 5'7" and have a oddly shaped mid-section, lets just say I have larger love handles and no hips, apple shaped type. My pants have a tendency to fall down and shirts have a tendency to ride up. Before owning this coat I had no experience with a jacket with a cinched/fitted waist. I usually wear medium to Large in tops and made sure I ordered a Large to accommodate for the fitted waist. I love the way this coat fits. It happens to hit me at just the right length to stay down even when reaching for things, which was my only worry when purchasing this particular coat. The sleeves are also super long which I love.
