I narrowed down my jacket search to this jacket and the Sessions MVP. I wound up sending this one back, but certainly not because I felt the jacket was lacking, but more because I liked the fit of the Sessions jacket a bit better. I'm 6'1 195 lbs, and the L was probably the right size for me (I could MAYBE go down to M, but I'm not sure if the arm length would be right in that case). The chronic color is pretty sick, and the jacket has some pretty awesome features and tons of pockets. I only docked it a star because the location of the pass pocket is kind of silly (inside the jacket around the waist/hips instead of on the arm or in the lapel) and because it would also be nice to have some headphone guides like the Sessions jacket has. So, to sum it up, if you like a bit baggier of a fit, go with this jacket and you won't be disappointed.
I bought my Targas at the end of the 2007/2008 season and rode them once last season on my last day out. This season, I've ridden them about four times, and half of those times, something broke.
The first thing was the toe strap. It was a really cold day, and hopping off of the chair i stepped on the toe strap, and it snapped right in half! I went to strap in and saw my strap sliding down the slope. So, that day was pretty much a wash and a board tech fixed it with a file down burton toe ladder.
The second thing was the right high back (I ride regular). I did about three or four runs, got down to the chair lift and went to fold down the high back, and it had snapped right in half! I mean are you s**tting me? How does that happen? Maybe it was defective, but I'm just not so sure.
Rome customer service has been very helpful, though, and I had replacements for both parts within about a week. I will give them one more chance, but if something else breaks, I will go back to Ride bindings, which I've never had problems with.
