Betty Rides Ivy Parka brings snowboarding style après to a new level of sassiness with pea coat buttons and cut. If you thought it was all fashion and no function, Betty hits you with a 15K waterproofness and 10,000g of breathability with this coat. The Ivy has no end in sight for tech features that keep you protected in the snow, like Underarm zips and critically sealed seams. The Ivy's snap back powder skirt with lycra panel has you covered if you wipe out. The removable hood lets you sport this parka length coat from the slopes to the lodge.

I got this in a large....medium would have been a typical fit though. I wear between a medium and large. I like to be able to layer and have extra lengths in the sleeves and torso. The sleeves are a little long..but I like that...keeps my hands warmer. It does have a bit of insulation already..which is nice, but on a warm spring day it made it too toasty. overall good jacket, durable material..but yet soft and moveable
got the black one. i haven't had the chance to wear it out yet...so can't say much about its warmth, etc. but looks pretty nice. the arms are little longer than average.
Pow skirt doesnt have Lycra panel. Waterproof rating is 10k, not 15k.
Likes: spacious goggle pocket & media pocket w/ Chamois wipe...though I don't want to have to touch my mp3 player to get to it. Media pocket is btwn main zip and storm flap, so you don't have to unzip to access it; headphone port. Outer pocket key hook. Pow skirt has loops that work w/ most pants. Internal windflap. Vents have lining and flaps.
Dislikes: sleeves are VERY long-6+ inches too long for me-but rest of fit is perfect-not common for me. Velcro sucks! Sleeves and ninja cuffs stick to coat, coat sticks to itself, ruins fabric. No hood storage and hood zip/flap look weird when hood is off.
