Sick jacket! I'm 6 foot about 230lbs and the xxl is a little big. Not so much that I'd return it, just baggier than what I would normally get. I'm inbetween sizes and the xxl was a better choice. I got this jacket in black and paired it with the Frigid(military)pant. Goes well together. The shell material has a rip stop-like texture that is subtle and feels like the jacket will be tough when shredding in the trees or slamming on the ground. It feels kind of heavy for a shell but nothing to cry to your momma about. The features are good, zippers are easy to use and the 10k should do the trick for a few years. Tried it for the first time at Squaw Valley today in the wind and it seemed to block the wind fairly decent. All around a very good jacket. I would recommend this jacket over any other jacket Volcom has to offer, besides the gore tex gear.
