It’s finally time for you to have your cake and eat it too. The Volcom Men’s Golden Jacket packs 60g of Polyfill insulation into a V-Science 2-Layer shell to keep you dry and toasty while you’re in the shred zone. Extra protection against the elements can be easily gained by attaching the powder skirt to your favorite Volcom snowboarding pants. If you’re able to fill up all the pockets and have anything left over you must have along for the ride, you should probably think twice about bringing your favorite blow-up doll with you for a quick romp in the trees. It just isn’t necessary.

Features not up to snuff
I didn't find this jacket to be particularly great for several reasons.
- There are NO inner pockets. the two chest pockets are on the outside of the jacket, not exactly the best for storing media devices in cold weather.
- the hand pockets have another pocket stacked on top of them on the outside. though the two outer pockets are good, once you stash more than a few things in them, the jacket bloats up at the bottom.
- inner goggle pocket doesn't close up. i lost goggle lens case b/c of this.
- if you ride the PNW, this is not the jacket for you. Since the snow is extra wet up there, this jacket will soak through easily
I bought a small (5'5") and whenever I bent over to strap in, my sleeves would pop up 2 inches above my wrist.
I thought this was awesome at first - hidden between an outer pocket and a hand pocket - however, when i put my pass in, the velcro wouldn't fully close and since the holder is pointed down, there was definite potential of losing the pass.
I really liked the color and the ziptech when combined with compatible pants. Like jrocker712, i loved how it turned the whole suit into a onesie.
What could have been added:
This is more of a personal preference, but I think wrist gaiters would have made the jacket better.
Got the jacket last week then took it to Kirkwood this past weekend. Dope jacket. Great fit, great features and super comfy even when its dumping. Paired this with a pair of Volcom Nimbus pants so I got to take advantage of the Ziptech which basically turned the combo into a full body suit without looking like it. The 10k waterproof rating kept me dry all day while it was dumping. I highly recommend this jacket. If anyone has questions on fit, I'm 5'6" medium build and a small fits great.
Received this jacket in the mail this week and it is perfect! Great colour (Military) and enough pockets to put all those special toys in. Anyone 5'10 and medium build go the small size as fits like a glove.
