This is a great jacket, loaded with features and pockets galore.
Removable powder-skirt. Powder-skirts are great on the mountain but a PITA around town. I love being able to zip it on and off.
Super waterproof. I've worn it on the freeway in a rainstorm, in January, in Portland. Cold, wet, and 60 mph + winds if you're on a motorcycle. It kept me toasty, warm and dry.
Hood is large enough to accommodate a snowboarding helmet. (But not large enough for a motorcycle helmet.)
Zipper flaps at top and bottom are a bit awkward. I'm not sure what purpose they serve. Not a deal-breaker though.
