picked up a pair of these as an alternative to the classic Caribou Sorel. They are sweet! Way lighter than the Caribou model and still waterproof and warm, allthough I feel at extreme cold the caribou is prob a tad warmer. Sweet style and super comfy. They run a touch large but not super huge. Only downside is they take a little time to get on and off, cant just step into them but its not a big deal at all.
Really like the style of this jacket, I have the Blue marine color and its a touch lighter in person than what the pic shows. Its a little bulky feeling but not too bad. Bought specifically for skiing in blizzards and riding chairlifts when everyone else wimps out and heads to the tram line at snowbird. So far so good, I have worn it in -15 windchills and raging snow with only a thin longsleeve baselayer on and been fine. Its very warm and the shell material is no joke, very waterproof. One minor complaint is the collar could be a little higher to fully seal up on chairlift rides. The hood fits over my helmet but I would like it to be a little bigger as well. The beer holders (yes it has slots in the back for beers, or caffeine free sodas for our LDS brethren) are kinda cool, kinda gimmicky, I mean I never had trouble before just putting a beer or 2 into a pocket but I think it will come in handy for sure for comp watching later in the year. Fit is kind of baggy, I normally go xl for most things and got xxl in this so i could wear it out casually over hoodies and stuff no prob, it fits good, the classic fit from ride is 2in longer than their normal jackets so this is very long. I am 6'3" and its still a long fit on me. Overall a great jacket for casual wear when its cold out and great for resort riding in nasty weather.
