This jacket is very versitile. Very warm. Just used it for the first time at Breckenridge Colorado when we were getting snow all day everyday April 5-14, 2013. Was super cold for spring boarding. Temps were around 0-10 degrees with wind chill. Very good quality material. On really cold days you may need a sweatshirt underneath cause your arms will get cold. The vest keeps your core warm but not much insulation in the arms. Other than that sweet jacket and awsome color.
