I got this jacket and was a little skeptical at first as the fabric was so stiff (compared to my AK outerwear). However, after I wore it on the hill a couple times, the fabric really softened up and I felt like I could move better in this jacket. I love the styling of it - so many cute buttons and details, TONS of interior and exterior pockets, and has all the necessary features of a great snowboard jacket (detachable pow skirt, goggle pocket, adjustable hood, etc.), and it's super warm! I get so many compliments on the hill about this jacket and I'm really glad I ended up keeping it because it's everything I wanted in a jacket.
