I realize Oakley gear is a bit on the pricey side, however, this jacket is a great value and has all the right features. I really like the vents and the material. I got the black and its all I expected and then some. Reccommend it to anyone looking for a good moderate weather jacket. Get it.
People hate on Burton and think the company is all about the bottom line. I have been boarding since I owned a Burton Elite 150. Look it up. Punk a$$ kids who think its cool to hate know nothing about Jake Burton or what he's about. The method is a great board. Personally, I like the vapor, but its a great board. If you have the money, blast it. It will go wherever you what fast. Yeah, there are cheaper boards for the guys who don't have a life off the hill and have to settle, but no need to hate on that either. I run the A Frame (Arbor) in the powder and the Vapor everywhere else. Jake Burton made the sport what it is and, coming from someone who remembers being banned from ski areas cuz I had a board, he's not the guy to hate.
