I LOVED this jacket from the moment I unpacked it. It was exactly how I pictured it. The colour, the buttons, everything, but the size. I got a small, but I was kind of debating, if I should have gone with the XS instead. But I didn't want to deal with the whole exchanging business. So I kept the size small. But when I got the chance to break in the jacket itself. I found that the small was still a good size after all. Because it gives me enough room to move around and fit a nice sized more bulky hoodie under it.:)
I could have snowboard in this jacket all day and all night. I didn't even notice the cold. I wasn't at all affected by the cold wind. Only my face was affected.lol And for me to say that, is HUGE cause I get cold FAST. I was actually able to keep up with my husband when snowboarding. I thought that for sure I would have to go inside to warm up at least 2 times. NOPE, not once was I complaining about my center core being cold.
The only thing I would change about this jacket, is have the hood be detachable. Because I found that it would be in my way sometimes when wearing the jacket indoors. It would feel a bit on the bulky side.
Over all this is a GREAT jacket. It does live up to its hype and reviews. And I would definitely recommend this jacket to others.
