This jacket is absurdly awesome! I am so happy I decided to pick it up. It's so comfortable and warm I can't believe it! Burton really knocked it out of the park with this one. I've always been a huge fan of their company, and this just secured the deal. I'm around 5'10" and got the large, and it fits perfectly. I wanted it to fit a little baggy so I can look cool in the park and it does just that. I look so damn steezy in this thing.
The gore-tex is top notch, definitely worth the money. I went to the Utah Humane Society the other day to play with cats at Kitty City and got distracted by a wonderful pup named Thanks. The volunteers (they are so nice!) let me take her out for a walk around the shelter. It had just snowed over a foot in the valley so it was like a winter wonderland out there. Thanks was playing in the snow/mud/poop combo on the ground and kept jumping on me. It was getting everywhere! Thankfully, I had on my Burton Prism Gore-tex Jacket to keep me dry and warm. Although, after I was done with puppy play time, I was covered in mess. What a predicament! But, alas, it was so easy to clean! I just grabbed your typical common household sponge and wiped it off, threw it in the dryer, and BLAMMO! It was as good as new! The dog fur, the mud, the poop, the snow, it was all gone! And it smelled wonderful. I couldn't believe it.
But in all seriousness, it's an amazing jacket. I would recommend it to anyone.
