After spending a couple years in Jackson Hole and then another 4 in Park City, I've now landed at the edge of the ocean in california. I don't get to ski as much, but the surf and sand is holding me over.
This is a great jacket as an everyday jacket. I've gotten several compliments on it, i have the blue one. I'm not sure i would wear it riding because it sits short on my hips. But it's very warm and has a ton of pockets for everyday use.
I've had a couple Nomis hoodies and they are the best hoodies I've ever had. Pockets are deep, length is just long enough and they are thick, so you can wear then without a jacket when it's cold. They also last a really long time.
I gave this hoody to my brother as a xmas gift, he loves it, but it's very long. He's about 6'1 and it comes down over his butt. If you were any shorter it would be really baggy, but that may be the look you want.
