Great jacket. Highly recommend if you can still find one
I love this jacket. Purchased last year at a close-out, the jacket keeps you dry, and let's you layer underneath. I'm 6'1" and 170 lbs, and wear a large. It's form-fitting, and so, not a lot of room for bulky mid-layers, but perfect for a base layer + mid-layer fleece (2/300). Hood fits over my Smith Holt helmet. Pit zips are a life saver when it gets warm out on the hills. Keeps me completely dry in whatever the snow condition or weather. If it were stolen or damaged, I would go out and buy another like it tomorrow.
I'm a girl but bought this jacket for myself. I like a nice loosely fit jacket to fit under layers. This jacket really is amazing. It is nice and long so for taller people it fits just right. It protects you perfectly from the wind and rain. It's very flexible and it is light so you can wear it on those warmer boarding days when you still want to be protected from getting wet. This is exactly the jacket I needed and I'm so happy I bought it.
Looks good and light/shell
Great jacket. Only a shell so needs to be layered but also means it packs down small if needed. Hood is right size bigger than transmission hood.
anyone know if the powder skirt is removable...
anyone know if the powder skirt is removable on this? also, does this fit somewhat long? slim?
The powder skirt is not removable.
The jacket is great!! I used in VA this past season and spring. On cold day/nights with 2 thermals under i was warm and warm day/nights great with a long sleeve under.... It keeps you dry underneath....Cool big pockets for goggles or gloves. Chest pocket for camera or anything you have. Ipod pocket and insert for plug.....Great id/lift/money pocket....last great looking!!!!
Good jacket, fair price!
I ordered a Burton Bright White Houndtooth Camo jacket size large. It was shipped two days after I ordered it and got it in about 6 days via United State Postal Service (USPS). This was the lowest shipping cost for me (I live in Hawaii).
Snowboarded with it for three days at Whistler in mid March 2010.
Good jacket, kept me dry, and covers me with my helmet on for the very windy cold days. It stayed on even after riding. My other jacket could not cover the helmet well. The long lenght and zip-up on the back to the pants is a great option, although I did not use it. Yet, after some tumbles, I never had snow down my pants. I was in wet Whistler snow, and my body did not get wet (pretty good).
I did see two guys with the same material in pants. The color display on the web site is a little more color saturated then the actual jacket.
this jacket is sick i got it today and im 5'4 and i got a small and its perfect a little sag but not too bad i got the blue and its sick
do you need to zip in a fleece jacket into...
do you need to zip in a fleece jacket into the launch jacket for added warmth. If so, can a north face fleece zip into it
there's no system in this jacket for zipping in a liner. but on cold days you will definitely need to layer under this shell. it is just a shell no insulation.
