Odds are slim that you'll change the world by going snowboarding, but at least when you're wearing the Volcom Activism women's insulated jacket, your season will take a turn in the right direction. With a stretch twill face fabric and 80g low-loft insulation, so you'll be comfy on all but the coldest days at the resort. Plus, there's a bunch of features that were probably thought out by neurotic scientists, because they're so simple and effective that you won't believe you made it this far without them.
The V-Science stretch twill face fabric will stop wet snow, and the breathable liner keeps you from soaking yourself from the inside out. The 80g low-bulk synthetic insulation gives you a bit of extra warmth without unflattering, annoying bulk. If you start roasting, zip open the mesh lined under arm vents to shed that extra heat. The Zip Tech powder skirt zips into compatible Volcom pants, so the snow will stay outside, where you want it, even when you're rolling around in it. The V-Science two-way cuffs let you cinch the cuffs down over your jacket, keeping you sealed up. And that whistle zipper is handy if you get stuck in a tree well, or when you need to get all gym coach on your friends.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I just received this coat and it's gorgeous! It's a little more gray than cream, so expect a pale slate colour (which was fine by me!). The fit is definately long, which I wanted for the body, but the arms are SUPER long, which isn't great for my 5'4" frame...oh well, role-up the cuffs! Tons of cool features and it is really warm. My personal favourite was the surprise quote on the sleeve "let it storm" (very subtle, but cute:).
Are you able to tell me the length of the...
Are you able to tell me the length of the size L please? I'm quite tall but still want the longer look without it being too tight. The size guides seem to give mixed results.
Thanks for your question.
I measured this jacket in a size large and the center back length is 27 inches. I hope this helps.
Volcom Activism Jacket
I'm not going to lie, I'm a hard person to please and Volcom's snow outerwear has never disappointed me. This being my third Volcom outfit in my teenage years, I keep getting new ones to stay trendy on the slopes but I can still pull out my very first outfit and take a ride. I will admit, you do drop some cash for these outfits but they are 100% worth it. This particular jacket, is the comfiest and warmest jacket I have yet to buy. It is also the slimmest looking jacket I have ever bought. It shows the natural curves, which is so much more pleasing than the jackets that make you look like you're stuffed into a cardboard box. Also, in pictures, the flowers look a little dull but let me reassure you, in person, they are perfect. You will not be disappointed in this jacket or the matching pants.
