I bought one of these jackets for my sister and one for me. The brown flowered print is insanely cute, and the grey/white flower is actually very small purple and blue flowers, also really nice looking. Compliments galore. Let's face it -- fit is important. The jacket fits tightly through the hips, but a button in the back can release some of that tight effect. If you take a spill, no snow will find your posterior region with that skirt cinched down! There are a lot of snaps in addition to the zipper, but they didn't bother me. The hood is roomy, which I liked, but can be cinched down. The fabric around the neck is soft, so nothing is scratchy when you're all zipped up. The sleeves, contrary to another review, can be cinched down as well with a snap, though the cinch point is about two inches up from the actual cuff. The jacket kept me really dry in a cold urban downpour last week. It is mid-to lightweight, so I would suggest layering (as I do with any jacket) on the slopes. To me, the lightness adds to the versatility. Overall, expect versatility, practicality, and megawatt cute.
I want this jacket SO bad!!! I need it in small though, hoping some small ones are available someday!

Depending on your size, you may want to go with medium. I am fairly narrow in build, 5'7" and 130. The medium that I bought for my sister ended up fitting me perfectly. I bought her a large. I can layer underneath, which you will want with the weight of this jacket if you intend to take on some serious cold-weather activities... It's super cute and well-fitted enough to go with a t-shirt, as well. The good thing is -- these are returnable. You may be smaller than me, but for me the medium was perfect.

-Waterproofing is great.
-Looks hot. Get ready for compliments.
-Fit is feminine - flattering if you have average or slender hips/butt.
-Functional features. Has everything you'd want and need.
-Fits true through the SHOULDERS (which was important, because I'm very broad up top.)
-runs very SMALL through the hips, even for a fitted jacket. I'm between 8-10 so I sized up and got the Large. Glad I did. The "Large - 10/12" is rather tight around my butt. I doubt it'd fit a size 12, and a fuller size 10 would be pushing it, even.
- The snowskirt isn't "universal". It won't clip onto a belt - only onto special blend pants(which I didn't have). B/C the skirt runs small it constantly was riding up.
Thus, I could be seen digging chunks of ice and snow out of my butt at the lodge.
Overall, a keeper. Just wish it was roomier and that the snowskirt was adaptable.

Ok girls, there are good and bad comments on here. I'm about a size nine, but I'm tall: 6'0. Are the sleeves really that short? And how far is the jacket down your waist. My body is the longest part of me, and I ALWAYS have problems with sleeeves and body length. Looks like a cute jacket, but I want a good fit, too! Let me know :)

Sounds to me that you should buy one size up from what you normally get. Sorry I'm not a girl, but nobody has responded to you in a month. That's my two cents.

This Jacket is as cute as it looks. As far as function goes it fails miserably. There are no cuffs on the sleeves, which means very cold wrists, and the sleeves are quite short. The hood is either buttoned all the way up or off. you have to have it snapped all the way up in order for the jacket to look good, there is no versitility in the way its worn. The pockets have the hidden zippers so they are difficult to access in cold weather, when your fingers feel like they are going to fall off. Good looks, but who ever designed it, has probably never ridden on the east coast, if at all.
I'm looking for a spring jacket..
Is this jacket really warm, or could it be used for colder spring/summer days?

This jacket has lightweight flannel insulation. If you were to use it for spring riding I would wear thin layers underneath you'd be ok. I will say it is not ideal though for really warm riding temps would require a light shell.

I'm 5'1 and 105 lbs. I got the jacket in XS and it fit great, except the arms were a bit long. It's really comfortable and you can really move around in it. Good for layering and very soft. I got it in St Tropez and the color is slightly brighter than in the pic. really nice color. However, it only looks really good when it is all buttoned up. It's not the warmest jacket but perfect for southern CA resorts like Big Bear where it's not that cold.
