Unanswered Question

Any idea of specific measurement differences between Volcoms regular fit and the athletic fit?

I like extra length, but is the chest smaller? Sleeves shorter?

I'm 6'1" and 260#. Been riding Volcom XXLS for years with no issue.

This board rocks. I have ridden the past 2 years models, and I couldn't be happier. I'm 6'1", about 250, and I've been riding the 157. It performs well all around the mountain, but is a bit too soft for super high speeds in cruddier snow. This problem could be alleviated for me personally with a little bigger size, but when it comes to park riding, or turning the whole mountain into a park, the 57 is on point. I can ride deep pow, carve on groomers, and hit small to medium kickers with out any problems. I don't hit any jumps bigger than 25 feet, but I could imagine at my weight, this board might be a bit squirrelly! This year i'm going to try a 159 for a little extra umph!

Ok, so I followed the new product trend and bought this nomis jacket. I have always support nomis, and rock plenty of their gear. It seems like they spent a boatload of money on styling and colorways, but only spent a tiny amount on function and quality. Just touching the material you can feel it's a little chincy, and, for example, the velcro is low grade, and very poorly attached. the wrist gaiters are very thick and seem like they're designed to go on the outside of your glove, versus the inside, that's a big problem when you're shredding the steepy deepys. Some positive points about this jacket: Great style, and if you are tall, this is a phenomenal fit! I"m 6'1", and this thing came down to mid thigh. If you support nomis and you like to look fly in the park, this jacket is for you. If you ride 40+ days a year, I'd look into something a little more tech.

First off, I have ridden the 390 for a few years now, and they have been by far my favorite binding. I bought this years and and out of the box I was super stoked. Comfy ankle strap, more padding, and a dope color way to throw it back to the 80's. I rode them a few times, and ultimately found that I needed more support. Rome changed the ankle strap up and slimmed it down a little. If you're into rails and massive tweaks, these are for you, however, if you need a little more support (for pipe, or for whatever reason), I would think the targa's are your binding, their ankle strap is beefier and the binding is overall a bit stiffer. I sent back my 390's and are happily awaiting targas!!

I have ridden volcom for 3 years now, and I don't see any reason to stop. This jacket is warm (for a shell) due to it's heavier bamboo weave construction. I doubt it will make a great spring jacket, due to the weight, but if you like to layer for the colder months, great buy. I like the fact that it's a wee bit kinder to the environment, and you can tell that cute snow bunny that you're just "doing your part to save our planet". Great fit too, I wear a XXL, and this jacket fits like a XXL should.

Two problems:
for a XXL, the sleeves should be just a little longer (I realize that some tall people might want to buy a XXL for the length, and the fat guys (such as myself) aren't the only people rockin' xxls.

If you live in an area that tends to deal with wetter weather (northwest, New England (me)), this jacket's material might not cut it. In the rain, water tends to stick to the jacket. You can wipe the water off, or shake it off (like a dog) but it doesn't bead off like most materials. But the water never ever seeps into the jacket, keeping you dry.

Bottom line:
This jacket is sick, comfy, and volcom is the dopest company out.
