Well I bought this for my mother. She doesn't have a skiing jacket but she won't be using it till the 2010/2011 ski season. It's a great looking jacket. She lives in Florida so it doesn't get to cold for long but it looks like it could be used as a city jacket as well. The liner can be removed but I'm concerned with the hood on the liner. It doesn't attach to the jackets hood. Nice complement of pockets.
I love it
This jacket is stylie and practical. Many people comment when I wear it. it's light weight, and warm. I got a small because it was the only option for me in the color I wanted. (probably would have chosen a med. if I had the option). It fits snug, not much room for extra layers underneath when snowboarding. But it doesn't seem to be a problem.
I'm happy with it.

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.
Decent performance, off-the-chart cuteness.
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.

still not clear on the sizing/fit of the coat..
Lyman Crisler - were those waist sizes you gave in your answer? can you give any more detail about how it fits in the chest and the hips?
would you say that this coat is slim fit? regular fit?
The sizing i posted are our chest sizes for our jackets. This is a slimmer, more form fitting jacket. The powder skirt holds the jacket down from riding up, especially if you get special blend pants then they will connect to each other. To be honest "it fits well" is what women tell me. i think you will like it.
Really cute and comfy
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.
I love it! It looks just perfect! very glad that I bought it!
Ok girls, there are good and bad comments...
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.
Do ladies ski jackets come in sizes? i'm...
Do ladies ski jackets come in sizes? i'm quite little and i would like a jacket which might fit me nicely.
is this a stupid question...?
Not a stupid question at all. Our sizes are not numerical. But here is our sizing scale. Measure yourself and see which is best for you. XS: 30"31.5" (7780 cm) S: 32"33.5" (8185 cm) M: 34"35.5" (8791cm) L: 36"37.5" (9296cm)
I'm looking for a spring jacket..
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.
What does it's wet weather rating mean. I...
What does it's wet weather rating mean. I need a warm all purpose wert weather jacket that is lightweight for traveling to China it has to be able to fold up into a small area too. What is it's weight?
It has a waterproof raiting of 10000mm so you will be fine in most weather systems. There is no weight raiting which tells me that its heavy. For packability this is not the best option try checking out the...The North Face Bomber Jacket...Arc'teryx Fission SV Jacket - Women's or maybe do a rain jacket with a feece or down jacket under it. If you can afford it Fission is the way to go
Are you asking weight as in lightweight and heavyweight? The jacket is more on the heavyweight side because it is insulated. If you just want a shell that will keep you dry, look at the Special Blend Avalon Jacket - Women's. This has a removable liner, so if you take it out, it will just be the shell.
the Tropez jacket is warm? I am always very cold when snowing...
on the othe hand, I am from Spain, it is possible to sell this item to Spain, and what about the freight cost?
I love this jacket! It's cute, fits well, and is very warm. I wear this jacket skiing and doing every day stuff and have no major complaints. Yes, the jacket does have to be worn zipped up or it looks stupid, yes the zipper pulls are tiny, yes there are no sleeve cuffs (I just wear glove liners that go up to my elbow when skiing), and the pockets are a bit awkward because they are not slanted at all. But I love this jacket so much that I'm more than willing to look past the problems. There's a ski pass pocket, a great snow skirt, and an Ipod pocket and headphone cord holders.
It won't crash and Burn.
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.
Great, but runs small.
-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.
