Never heard of Homeschool before trying this jacket on. Won't be surprised if they start blowing up soon. This jacket kicks serious ass: super waterproof weather in rain or heavy snow, and breathable when it's bluebird. Very lightweight and plenty of room for layering. I couple mine with a down midlayer and cotton tee and the setup keeps me warm down to around 15 degrees. Really like the pocket setup, plenty of room to stash all the extras. Love the design on the wrist cinches. The collar is really high, and though it's kind of a funky look, I couldn't be more pumped...wind and snow be damned! Hood is plenty roomy and the overall look of the jacket is really solid. I have it in black and it's not splashed with logos and BS extras. Just a good, solid jacket.
5'9" and the medium size is right on point.
Powder skirt fits a bit high on the waist but performs decent.
