This board is good for jibbing, hitting smaller kickers and buttering up the mountain but that's about it. In anything but glass smooth snow, forget it. This thing has no damping which makes it great for jibbing (good feedback, feel under foot) but on anything like chowder, chunder or mashed potatoes it will work your legs something fierce. That makes approaching jumps really awkward and uncomfortable.
Overall, get the Westmark. It's pretty playful too but it can plow through choppy conditions much better so when the park turns to spring corn, you can still send it like you want.
This Fallen collab was a great idea, it's really produced some good stuff. 686 Limited items are always cool and this is no exception. I am 5'7" 145 and I went with an L, though my true size for 686 is M. Sleeves are plenty long (71" wingpsan). It's pretty much true to size, same size as other L jackets I own.
Get this jacket, it looks sick in person. Real skate style.
First, be aware this is really a technical shell, not an insulated jacket. If you want to wear it in adverse elements, layer up underneath. Even for a shell, it feels very lightweight so this would probably be an awesome spring jacket.
The Dryride Durashell is rated 20k mm and 15k g/mm^2 and feels very waterproof. This would probably keep you dry in any environment.
Ultimately, I ended up sending it back simply because the fit. It's Burton SigFit. I am 5'7" 140lbs and the small was waaay too small. I'd size up to at least M or maybe L to get that loose fit steeze. Be aware of this and try one on before you order or size up at least 1 from your normal jacket if you buy from typically loose fitting brands (Special Blend, Nomis or 686).
Otherwise, seems like a quality jacket.
