I'm turning into a Nomis junkie..

- Fit: Runs large
This is now my second favorite jacket, my first being the Nomis Stacey Jacket. I really like this one because of the 10k ratings, versus my 8k ratings in the Stacey. The pockets are nice, but I would have to say they are a little small, which is odd because this jacket seems to be slightly larger in a medium on me than other Nomis stuff I've gotten. But the pockets would seem to be made for someone with really tiny hands, or not looking to put much into them. I do LOVE that the neck portion of the jacket is so tall because it offers protection as I'm shredding down the slopes, but it can be bothersome if I don't have it zipped up as it will flap around and kind of slap me in the face.
A nice jacket
My height is 165cm and my weight is 54kgs. Medium is just fit for me.
Waiting for the fashion industry to quit bull****ing women's sizes.
This jacket is typical of most of the problems with women's clothing. Namely that sizes are NEVER uniform or rational. I hope you have a 22" waist and a 2 and half foot long arms, cause otherwise this jacket won't fit right. And god help you if you have a chest at all. Pretty sure this jacket would better fit one of those skinny hipster boys better.
I am also not a fan of the way Nomis has designed their collar/hood feature. The part of the jacket that covers your neck can also double as a facemask, which is cool. However, the times I have used this feature are minimal and when you don't have it zipped up all the way, expect the collar part to smacking you in the face all the way downhill. If you don't have a giraffe's neck it can even be so bad that it obscures your vision when it is smacking you in the face.
The number of pockets is definitely cool on this jacket, and it's also nice that they zip up however the pocket openings are irritatingly annoying! I have small hands and I have a hard time using the front pockets as hand warmers.
In conclusion...this jacket might be best for a really lean and lanky girl but it sucks for everyone else and the features (while cool) are questionable at times. I bought this jacket cause I needed something cheap for the season, but I think I will definitely be replacing it once jackets drop in price during the warmer months.

What's the rating (not sure of the right...
What's the rating (not sure of the right term) for the insulation in the body and the sleeves of this jacket? i.e. 100g
