I had this jacket picked out last year and was very excited. Then come to get it and there are no gaiters in the wrist area...this is no good for utah powder. There is no medium pocket access from the outside of the jacket like all my other betty rides jackets. The media pocket is a small spot where an Ipod can fit snuggly. there is one other lower inner waist pocket but it is just annoying. The large is bigger than their other larges, the medium is bigger than other betty rides mediums. I need right in between. Switched from large to medium for a better fit, but the sleeves are not as long as I like and with no wrist gaiters that makes for cold arms which kept the rest of my body really cold. The zipper gets stuck at the bottom and is really hard to get started zipping up or to unzip to take off. This was the same on the other sizes I tried on, so it will be the same on all.
I have to say this is the biggest disappointment in betty rides gear I have had in the past 4 years of purchasing it. I am still in big debate about returning it...I love the look of it, but the functionality is just not where I need it to be. I just really feel like they cut corners on this jacket...which is a bummer for how awesome it looks.
