I got this jacket in the fall and I am in love. The pullover design is awesome and the kangaroo pocket in front is huge so you can stash anything in it. Very heavy duty zippers on all pockets is also a nice feature. The waterproofing on this jacket is something else, I live at the base of Mt. Hood in Oregon which is basically the rain forest so this jacket fits my needs perfectly. A couple weeks ago it was pouring down rain at my local resort, the snow was still good and fast so I went out in the Night witch and spent 5 hours cruisin' with a huge smile on my face because I was still dry while all my friends were soaked. I would have to say this jacket breathes better than any Gore-Tex jacket I have ever owned, Cocona Tech could possibly be magic. I would recommend this jacket to everyone who likes to stay dry and snowboard in any weather. Good work Homeschool snowboarding!
