I got this jacket for riding in the Northwest and those non-spring days. Out of all of my jackets I have had over the years, Burton and non-Burton, this is the warmest. I get hot just sitting in my living room with it on. It is very comfortable and all pockets are efficient with easy access. The snow skirt is great for powder and keeps you nice and dry. I did find this jacket fit a little smaller around the hips and hit a little shorter than the average jacket. I used to wear XS, but I bought this one in small. Functional and stylish.
