Worth every penny
I am 5'5", 155 lbs and got an M size in black color. It is a little bit big on me. That's how I like it with an S size Denali inside. The build quality is excellent and very solid with lots of nice features. I used it on the raining day last weekend. It is waterproof as expected. There are many pockets to serve whatever purpose. However, I have two small complaints: 1. There is no cell phone pocket. the picture and description on the web site are not correct. 2. The man zipper is not really black color. It is actually dark brown color. This does not bother me.

The Free Thinker jacket from TNF is incredible! This jacket is made with top of the line quality. It is extremely comfortable and allows for a great range of motion (perfect for snowboarding/ activity). If I ever happened to be wandering around inside of a hurricane, I honestly think that I would have no problem staying dry with this jacket on.

Bought this jacket, and never looked back
This is by far the best TNF shell I have owned, and it's definitely not my first. Say what you will about TNF, but for the money you get alot of features. I returned an Arc'teryx Theta jacket for this one, as the Theta lacked any kind of pockets or ski features. I know that's not what it's for, but the Free Thinker was an immediate improvement for me. The only complaint is that the "goggle" pocket is not nearly large enough for my oakley's, that was something only the Spyder jackets had down to a science. All in all, this is a great shell for skiing, and the Gore-Tex Pro is the highest end out there right now. It also just looks great, very understated yet sharp... I got the Iceland Blue. I am 6'3" and the large fit me perfectly, even with an Apex layered underneath.

hign end coat
This jacket is very comfortable. The breathable goretex material is the same that is used in the Army. Has pockets all over and can fit in half the size of a shoebox when folded. Highly recommended if you have the money.

If you have the money, it's worth it.
Great Jacket! Light weight and versatile. You can wear this jacket alone and it breaks the wind or with layers and it is perfect for skiing, hiking and a variety of other outdoor activities. As far as sizing goes, I am about 5'8" and about 160lbs and I wear a size small.
