I wore this jacket for the first time yesterday at Bellayre mountain in New York when it was 19 degrees with 8 inches of fresh powder and super hard winds and this jacket worked like a dream. I had a t-shirt and hoodie on underneath and I was plenty warm, I actually got really hot a few times but that is better than being cold. This jacket also kept me absolutely bone dry and I was rolling around in some pretty deep pow quite a bit (Literally rolling around in it, I love snow). Also it completely seals out wind with no leaks. My only complaint is that the media pocket on the inside to the jacket already had a hole on the inside of it on the bottom when I first got it but I know that is just a factory mistake. The freedom fit is perfect, just enough looseness for unrestricted movement but not so baggy that you look like one of those fools who get an xxl for no apparent reason. I am 5'10", got a medium, and I have plenty of room to move around and layer up underneath. It is just a little long on me but I don't really mind. I will post a picture later. All in all I couldn't be more happy with this jacket.
