I have the plaid version. Awesome jacket all around! The liner in the wrists has slits to put your thumbs in which is awesome because when you put your gloves on it makes it impossible for snow to get in the jacket. It has a pocket on the outside of the front zipper which is convenient for money and your iPod, which you can feed the headphones through a hole in the pocket, to the inside of the jacket and then up inside your hat! If you have the loop holes on the top of your pants, this jacket is able to attach to them from the powder skirt, so it doesn't tend to ride up to your waist when it's attached. The hood is adjustable as well. Vents are great too. Overall great engineering with this jacket! Only bummer is that the outside pockets are zippers and velcro and the velcro seems to get in the way if you use those pockets. I don't but just a heads up to those who do. It also has a metal thing tucked underneath the bottom to put your life tickets on!
