I have owned DC outwear snow products in the past, but this is the first time in like 3 years I have invested. Needless to say it was well worth the money, and DC has really stepped their quality up. The jacket is extremely comfortable to wear and the hand gators are a nice touch. The first time you try it on you know you are in love and it was the right choice. Front pockets are huge and deep and can easily carry a couple ice cold PBR's. Pow skirt is really well designed and has snaps that let you clip it up and out of the way when you are not using it. 15k insulation kills it, and has me sweating a little in a t-shirt on most days, super warm. Media pocket is nice and all zippers and sewing well done. Only complaint is that there was not a single pass clip or pass pocket on the entire jacket, as design many other jacket companies have used for a long time. The pass pocket/clip is clutch in jacket design and DC goofed there. That's why I gave it 4 stars.
