Very good and timely purchase
Ski jacket purchase for a lat February ski trip, so it has not gotten a true ski hill test. The jacket fits and looks very good and I anticipate it will serve me well.

I absolutely love this coat! As someone who layers a lot for skiing and always ends up getting hot and opening the vents, I loved the weight of this coat - not too heavy, not too light. Goes with everything! Fits like most North Face products I've purchased before, and it feels very solidly constructed. Win!

great sporty jacket
i bought this to replace an old, bulky, down coat for a skiing trip. it handled the cold and snow and my many falls with ease, and it's also great for just schlepping around the city. i am 5'9" and about 135 lbs, and i usually wear a small, but i got a medium in this jacket so that the sleeves would be a little longer. the medium fits fine, but i probably could have gone with the small. i've found that north face can run a little narrow in the hips, but this jacket is sized with room to breathe. i haven't tried it with just the liner, yet, but that option will be nice when warmer weather arrives. the pockets are just a tiny bit small, in my opinion, but not a deal breaker.

Versatile Jacket with Great Fit
I purchased this for an upcoming trip to Italy and wanted to "test-drive" the jacket before I got too far out into the outdoors. The first thing I noticed about the jacket was the great fit. I am 5 feet 4 inches tall and 115 pounds and a size small seemed custom-made for my shoulders and the sleeve-length and waist-length were spot on. The jacket is lightweight and versatile and came just at the right time with Washington, DC's weather waffling between mixed, freezing precipitation one day and rifling up to the 60's the next.
