Before purchasing I spoke with a Patagonia rep about sizing. He advised me to purchase the large based on my husbands measurements (6'4", 210lbs, 46L). I bought the extra large instead, and I'm glad that I did because it fits him perfectly. My husband claims that the jacket performs just as Patagonia advertises.

Performs and looks great
This jacket performed great under under several conditons. It kept me dry when it rained, when it snowed heavy in white-out conditions. The powder skirt and hoody are adjustable and work perfectly when I fell in deep powder. I used the hoody to cover the helmet when it rained and under heavy snow, the hoody fits just right and kept my head dry. This jacket is basically a shell, it doesn't provide much insulation, so you need to layer up when it's cold. The lack on insulation is a plus when it's warm, and it has huge pit zips under the arms. There is a bit of insulation in the hand warmer pockets and around the neck, which is a great feature. The chest pocket can carry a MP3 player or cell and has plenty of room for more stuff, and it's easy to access. This jacket fits a bit baggy, big and loose, it provides freedom of movement and plenty of room for several layers. The zipppers need improvement, as they tended to get stuck, and it would be better to have a adjustment strap around the collar to keep it tight around the neck. The zippers should also have a larger cord for easier adjustment when using gloves. Overall, this is the best snowboarding jacket I've had, and it also looks great, strongly recommend!

Loose fit, excellent jacket
I really like this jacket and Patagonia's H2NO can't be beat. I like that it is not insulated which allows me the flexibility to layer according to the weather. But my main gripe is the fit in the body is like wearing a trash bag -- it's extremely baggy. And, unfortunately there isn't a waist cinch belt.

It is the highest jacket in the snow mountain.
To drink and to get the powder early in the morning, this jacket was bought. It is possible to go on a hike comfortably even in a cold mountain of the morning as it is warm because ventilation is good even at hiking. It was a fit commodity in me who did snowboard.
