The Armpit Vents
Not Bad, not Super Great either
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
The quality was a little less that what I'd expected when this jacket arrived. It isn't bad, but the stitching and front zipper tabs could be a lot better. The front chest tabs are cheap cloth tabs.
Because this piece was designed under the Guide Proven Technology (GPT) series, keep in mind that the jacket has two front chest pocket but doesn't have any side hand pockets.
The greatest saving grace of a feature that this jacket has is the sick Face Tech face mask. It's so well placed and convenient that I'm actually impressed with it.
The sizing is true to size. All in all I think the quality of this jacket could be a lot better considering its $500 MSRP price and Gore-Tex usage.
Made in China.

Volcom Baldface Guide Jacket
This jacket is hardcore...Great fit--not too big or too long, warm, wind and waterproof, good looking..It works on warm and cold days. I like the hand gaitors, but they get in the way...Burtons thumb system is better. Overall, satisfied with Volcoms outerwear...as always
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Very water proof but I bought this and didn't notice till i got it but there are no front pockets/handwarmer pockets. The waterproof zippers are kind of pain they constantly are getting stuck on the inside fabric so I can't pull up or down it is constantly getting stuck looking into returning this jacket now for another volcom
