Good Fit Wrong Color
By Caroline Ranked #379 - Women's Snowboard Jackets November 15, 2010
Online the Ember looks like a rusty red color but in reality it is blaze orange. The look books on the Burton page show the color more accurately. I exchanged for black and the color is better.
Update since I've used this on the mountain:
Pros: The waffle knit lining feels great and is really warm. The fit looks great but works better for regular winter coat, not for snowboarding. The waist is accentuated which looks good, but it's too tight for thick layers. Also, the hood is the perfect size and really moves with your head so you don't end up with hood blind spots.
Cons: There aren't any wrist gaiters and the sleeves kept riding up so I kept getting snow in my sleeves. Also the media pocket is too small for an itouch and is on the inside of the coat so I had to unzip every time I wanted to change music. And last of all, the big metal zippers catch and get stuck all the time, very annoying.
Bottom line: if you're a small girl with short arms and a small mp3 player and want a tight fit this is fine, if you're average size or bigger either order a size up or get a different coat.
