My snowboarding son loved the color and style, as well as the extra warmth. He only uses is for snowboarding. He wasn't as excited and it came apart at the seams on the sides. It started with the pockets which are not well designed. The velcro came unstitched, and was not funtional. Inside magnets would be great to keep the flap closed. Dogfunk was great and replaced the jacket hassle free, but I now wonder if I shouldn't have gone with a different manufacturer. Hoping is was just some bad luck.
