Ride makes very good products; this jacket is no exception to that statement. The length is great for deep powder days, the removable hood is a dream, and the design is very hip! If you are a woman (and not a kid), try ordering off the kids b/c the gear is a bit cheaper. I usually take a medium in woman's jackets & this girl's XL fits quite nicely! I wager that I saved about $75 - 100 just for getting a girl's vs. a woman's jacket. I took the liner out (b/c it "grabs" my base layer) and just wore it with my regular layer and was fine. The waterproofing on this is very good as well. The only thing about this jacket is that if you are wanting true pink, the "Pink Mist Herringbone" is more of a pale lavender color. CHEERS & HAPPY RIDING!!
