Cute and useful, solid.
The outer layer is that all-purpose weather-proof poly blend (like the kind that soccer warm-ups were made out of if you ever played club...). The inside is a super fuzzy fleece where you'd want warmth and a soft cotton blend around the hands and neckline. The jacket is too warm to wear as an everyday sorta jacket, but is a great softshell for warmer days shredding the mountain or colder days around town. (I haven't tried it, but it could probably be a really warm midlayer on hella cold days.) The hood fits over a helmet and the sleeves are nice and long. My only concern is that it's really long, so if you have a shorter torso like I do, it pretty much covers your butt (which I guess is a good thing if you board...). I'm 5'3", 125# and the medium fits great (except it's a little long).
