overall great jacket
I had been in the market for a new ski jacket for a while, and after trying on numerous brands, I finally settled on the Patagonia Snowbelle. This jacket has a great fit, it is flattering to a woman's body and is long enough in the back to keep you warm when on the ski lift. I am petite and ordered an xs, it fits perfectly. The arm length is just perfect and I love that the hood is insulated as well as removable. The pockets are great and the pit-vents are easy to pull open when needed. I have worn this skiing in the Catskills and Telluride, and it held up great even in wet conditions. You definitely have to layer underneath as this jacket is warm, but is not windproof in chilly conditions. The mobility in the jacket is great as even when layered, you have excellent freedom of movement. Overall this is a great purchase and for a Patagonia product, a great price. I highly recommend!

Great ski jacket
Great product! I wore it skiing in Tahoe, great fit. I am 5'7" 135lb and am somewhere in the small to med size range- I chose the medium and am happy with the choice. With a layer underneath, it fits great and is warm. I have longer arms and the length is great. It's really comfortable, not too heavy and definitely not bulky. It is well-constructed and seems like it will definitely last.

Excellent quality and warmth without the bulk!
I purchased this jacket for my teenage daughter! Although she doesn't do much skowboarding, she wanted a jacket that provided warmth without the "bulk." If this is what you're looking for then the Patagonia Insulated Snowbelle is the jacket for you!!! The fabric and construction is of supreme quality! I would definitely recommend this jacket!

This was my first Patagonia purchase, and it was a success. I wanted a warm waterproof ski coat, but couldn't decide between realiable North Face or Patagonia (a friend recommend the latter to me). I decided to go out on a limb and order this jacket because I liked the color and all the amenities. After receiving the jacket, I am pleased with my decision. The natural color is lovely, with the blue accent giving it some color! I am 5'5'', 130 lbs, and this jacket is a touch loose, but when I layer under it, I am sure it will fit perfectly. The arms are a bit long, so I rolled the cuffs up and it looks super cute with the blue lining showing. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this jacket!

As with all things Patagonia, this jacket is well put together and good quality. It is not a super technical coat, not a lot of pockets and zippers, which is good for me. I like this jacket a lot!
