just got this the other day, and i love it already. it's long enough that it keeps my back from getting snowy, it has a ton of great extra features (face mask, whistle zipper pull, lift ticket hang tag etc.) and has a lot of different options for micro-adjusting the fit. the ipod pocket opening is protected inside the zipper flap, but still on the outside of the coat so i don't have to lose all my toasty warmth every time i change a song. PLUS the passion fruit color is totally unique and rad! it's pretty true to the photo...essentially a shade of orange-peach. SO AWESOME. LOVE IT.
