So much better than i expected!
I absolutely love this jacket, i bought it in the cyan colour size M. i wasnt sure if it would be insulated enough for me but it sure is. very warm and i wear my usual 2 layers underneath and im fine even in cold conditions.
The length of this jacket is just great, keeps your butt and thighs warm on those windy days riding on the chairlift, he powder skirt sits comfortably just below your butt and has the jacket to pant clips option. I wasnt sure if there would be enough pockets or not but its great!!!
it has one chest pocket, one big inner mesh pocket, one pocket with a head phone slit for your ipod, two zip up hand warmer pockets, two velcro external pockets, one pocket for your phone or something right by the front zip and also a pass holder to slide in your ski pass.
I was a bit reluctant about this jacket due to the hood not being removeable but its no problem at all. you can tighten it and make it suit you.
the fleece lined chin cover is just awesome, so soft and breathable due to the meshed covered air pockets to keep it breathable even when the zips fully up.
the cuffs are very good and adjustable. has the hand stirrups so your jacket keeps nice and in place.
i was also surprised at the added useful feature that ive never seen before which is on one of the cuffs when you lift up the strap to tighten it you see a shiny silver mirror like 'card' in a slot there which acts as a reflector if you get into an accident and theres no one around you, a great safety feature!!
all in all, it figs like a glove, the designers thought of everything and the features and warmth of this jacket is astounding.
so worth the price, i got it on sale for$191, best purchase. Also id like to recommend the matching jamie anderson pants in light grey, thats jamies signiture looks and it looks awesome!!
with the shipping it was really fast, came within 5 days of ordering, ordered straight to the house with no reason to go down to the post office.
ill upload some pictures of the different pockets/features!
hope you guys enjoy this jacket as much as i do!
