I recently bought this jacket for snowboarding because I decided it was time to trade in my 15 year old lime green jacket for something with a little more style and waterproofing. I haven't had a chance to take it out on the slopes yet, but from trying it on and wearing it outside I know I'm going to love it! I bought a medium, and it fits me great! Im 5'7 and a bout 130lbs and have an athletic build so its the perfect size for me. I love the black design I got, the pattern is very suttle. The only thing I would like to have extra is to add a zipper on the inside chest pocket. Its just a mesh pocket with no enclosure so if I put something in there its sure to fall out, I might just add some velcro to it. Other that that its semi insulated and looks like its going to be very waterproof! Cant wait to try it out!

I bought the black cherry in a small. It fits and looks great! I'm 5'5" 1/2 and 120 lbs. The small fits perfectly for a coat, with just enough room for all my crazy layered outfits. I've been wearing this jacket for all weathers. In light summer rain, even. It's just thick enough that it doesn't stifle you in warmer weather but keeps you perfectly warm in snow. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone who's looking for a fun, functional snow jacket!

I was happy with this product and the customer service provided by Altrec. I think the jacket will be very durable, and appears warm for the light weight.

After not having a new coat in a decade, I found the details included here amazing. From the cinching belt that stops snow from entering your pants to the exterior pocket perfect for the cell phone. My favorite are the soft, fleece wrist cuffs with a hold for the thumb. When coupled with gloves, they make the warmest, driest glove experience I've ever had.

Great Jacket, Perfect for boarding
This jacket was amazing and definitely exceeded my expectations. I took it snowboarding in Southern California and found it to be a bit warmer than I would have liked -- but it is very lightweight and comfortable! Pros: great look (especially the light blue color), perfect for the mountain and in cold weather, comfortable, has pockets for everything, hood tucks away into collar, very weatherproof Cons: One of the buttons to attach the powder skirt came off before I even took it up the mountain! However, the parts that need to be durable definitely are. This is a high-quality jacket. Powder skirt not tight enough, I still got some snow up the jacket. Would be great if it had clips to attach to pants. Wish the jacket was a tad longer. Would have liked a more feminine fit. Overall, I recommend this jacket highly! For the price, it is a great buy. You won't be disappointed.
