Figured my bubble-jacket was too warm for the slopes so I bought this jacket in the purple color, and man, what a deal. 150 dollars for this ultra-high-tech-bigtime-user-friendly-überkewl-look-jacket is one helluwa steal. Great pockets and it's great to be able to zip of the powder-skirt. Completely water and wind-repellant.
Only thing I miss is a big simple pocket inside just to the left of the zip, but hey, you get used to putting your stuff on the outside.
Buy it. You won't get disappointed.
PS: Goes great with the Special Blend Empire Shell Pant. This coat in purple + empire shell pant in purple = love.
