This jacket has almost everything you would expect in a Burton jacket, yet a few flaws dropped my rating. The fit is loose, yet not baggy. I'm 5'9", 140 lbs and normally wear a medium in womens clothes. Using the sizing chart I fell into the large though with this jacket, which fits properly. I have long arms and often have a hard time finding sleeves that are the perfect length. These sleeves are long, even for someone with long arms. If you are short armed you probably won't like the fit. I was looking for a warm jacket that can keep me warm in below zero temps and wind hills. This jacket does just that. It is a very warm jacket that blocks the wind, yet you can open the vents to dump heat when needed. The vents are NOT mesh lined as advertised. The front zipper does not have an external storm flap which is another problem when the wind is blowing cold. I had lots of issues with the jacket shedding down, whichBurton says is normal, though others say shouldnt happen much with a quality down jacket. I'm hoping after a washing it gets better, but at this price I am disappointed in the jacket. I would say its a $250-300 jacket, not $500+.
