Options are good. Getting wet is bad.
Love rocking the lumberjack-style flannel/vest look but hate getting soaked in stormy weather? Look no further than the Vernon 3-in-1 Jacket from Nike Snowboarding. 10K-rated waterproof fabric and fully taped seams seal out moisture, while the 600-fill down vest keeps you warm on all but the most brutal days. The modular design lets you rock the vest or waterproof flannel separately or together, depending on the conditions (and whether you feel like mixing it up with something else in your wardrobe).

Not Bad at All
Definitely looks dope, and it is a big jacket, I'm 6'4" 235 and an XL fits me w/ some room to spare.
I was at Sugarloaf and it was around -5 all day with the wind and that was the only time I've ever actually worn the jacket with the vest. It did the trick no prob. That being said, unless it's ungodly cold, come to terms with the fact that you'll almost never rock the vest, at least I never do.
Never had it in any blower powder like you West-Coasters, so I can't speak to how it does in that, but on gnarly, awful East coast ice and in bitter cold this jacket has been great for me.
The construction of the jacket is solid, not mind-blowing, but good, and that was my biggest concern, given that it's a nike product and I tend to doubt the quality of anything made by a corporate conglomerate.
Overall, I'd recommend the Vernon, especially if you're a big dude or you like the baggy look.
Yo, Don't listen to the guy below. The description of this being a 3-in-1 with goose down vest is spot on. Homeboy just reviews products bad because he orders stuff that isn't his size. That being said...
This jacket is SO sick. Got it in the red/grey colorway, I'm 6'3, 205 lbs, and the XL fits me perfect. Nike went all out on this jacket with some serious features. Wrist gaiters, Powder skirt, plenty of pockets, and best of all, the vest and the jacket look absolutely SICK on the hill, or out on the patio when it's a bit chilly.
Do yourself a favor and cop this jacket. Nike is changing the outerwear game, for sure.
Way too big, very heavy
I saw this pop up on whiskey militia a few times, and decided to pull the trigger, evn though i didn't really need a new jacket. When it arrived, i noticed right away that this is a very heavy jacket. I am 6'2" and ~200 lbs, and the XL was way too big. I had a hard time reaching the zipper to zip the jacket.
It's on its way back to Utah
