The Fortress is all about you perfecting your goggle tan.
On stellar spring days, ditch your puffy for the DC Women's Fortress Fleece Jacket. A water-repellent coating keeps you dry when you crash and burn, and a thermal lining ensures you don't get the shivers while waiting for your turn to hit the pipe. Thumbhole cuffs block out snow and give your gloves a smooth fit. Its long fit, hood, media pocket, and multiple external pockets provide comfort and convenience when you're riding the lift or rocking out slashing some spring corn turns.

Trendy, cute and comfy
I love this jacket, however I primarily wear it as a casual apres-boarding jacket. This is really just a sweatshirt, there is no "fleece" to be found. The pockets are secure and there are only two on the outside front. It's also pretty light, so it'd have to be really warm for me to wear it snowboarding. I haven't tested the water repellentness yet but have a hard time believing that is going to be true. It's also a bit more snug fitting around the hips/butt that I don't think it would suit snowboarding as much as casual wear.
But if you are looking for a super cute, casual comfy jacket that everyone compliments - go for it!
Great Fall/Spring Jacket
First off I love the color! It's warm, but not too hot or stuffy for fall and spring weather. It holds up great in the rain. It's been a wet one this year, and my body has stayed dry thanks to this guy! The pocket placement is great, and the fit of the jacket is attractive.
My only complaint is the zipper has come open from the bottom a couple times on me. I think it's because I got a medium, and sometimes I go overboard on layers, so maybe I was putting too much strain on the zipper. I'm 5'5", 145lbs, 34B.
