I haven't actually been blessed enough to be able to use this on the slopes, but I will be stoked once I get a chance! I am prone to taking diggers in the pow, so I'm excited to have a jacket that will keep the snow out. The snow skirt looks awesome and is detachable; the hand panties are a new upgrade for my jacket that I'm very excited about; it's stylish and has plenty of pockets including a pocket with a key hook so you never have to worry about losing your keys on the slope!! It's got a handy pass pocket that pulls out from the outside of the jacket so you don't have to fumble with opening your jacket to get your pass out or anything. Easy access! The media pocket is a little small for my phone with the Otter Box on it, which is literally the only draw back to this jacket, but I'll probably just get a smaller case since I busted my Otter Box anyways. Love it! Can't wait to shred the slopes! Everyone do your snow dance!
