Hey, im planning to get this volcom jacket,...
Hey, im planning to get this volcom jacket, and I am 5'6". I do not know a lot about volcoms fit since i have never owned one, and i would like my jacket to be baggy, will a medium be big enough for me? Or should i even go with a large?
Large, volcom jackets vary, but tend to be a bit slimmer fitting, so large would be good if you like em baggy!
Sick jacket! I'm 6 foot about 230lbs and the xxl is a little big. Not so much that I'd return it, just baggier than what I would normally get. I'm inbetween sizes and the xxl was a better choice. I got this jacket in black and paired it with the Frigid(military)pant. Goes well together. The shell material has a rip stop-like texture that is subtle and feels like the jacket will be tough when shredding in the trees or slamming on the ground. It feels kind of heavy for a shell but nothing to cry to your momma about. The features are good, zippers are easy to use and the 10k should do the trick for a few years. Tried it for the first time at Squaw Valley today in the wind and it seemed to block the wind fairly decent. All around a very good jacket. I would recommend this jacket over any other jacket Volcom has to offer, besides the gore tex gear.
would this coat keep you warm during and...
would this coat keep you warm during and Ontario/Quebec winter, while ridding the hills?
yeah, its a pretty good jacket. Usually you want to go no lower than 10 K in breathability and waterproofing and this coat has that, you could find warmer coats but this one will work
Is this jacket warmer than the Volcom...
Is this jacket warmer than the Volcom Shatter Jacket (tried comparing specs) but I don't really understand the V Science Liner stuff? Shandyland Jacket says - Insulation - None & Shatter - 60g poly? Confusing?
Hey Tina. I'll un-confuse you.
The Shandyland has no insulation--it's just a shell jacket. The Shandyland's outer shell is made of V-Science 2 Layer, V-Science Stone Stop and V-Science Jacquard. These are all fancy names for Volcom's jacket material. The Shandyland does have a liner called V-Science breathable. Most all jackets feature some sort of ilner. The liner is a soft, moisture-wicking polyester material that separates your skin from the jacket material.
The Shatter jacket features similar materials (V-Science outer shell, and V-Science liner), but does have 60 grams (60g) of poly-fill insulation in it. That's a medium amount of insulation. This insulation will help keep you warm in colder temps but may also cause you to overheat when Spring riding rolls around.
The shandyland jacket is a shell, this means zero insulation, which also means you need to properly layer to match a variety of conditions. I enjoy layering, because you can use one jacket on a warm spring day, throw a baselayer and a hoodie under it, and boom, you have a super warm kit for a snowy day.
The Shatter jacket does have insulation. 60g is the weight of the insulation, 60-100 is pretty standard. Polyfill is similar to synthetic down material (real down is super warm stuff, the warmest you can get, down is composed of feathers and clusters, with the clusters being the super warm part. Synthetic down is fake down, really bulky) The advantage to polyfill is warmth without the bulk. I've ridden with polyfill jackets before, and the work well to trap heat in! If you've ever heard the words "Primaloft" or "thinsulate" these are all brand names of polyfill insulation.
Bottom Line: the shatter jacket is way warmer than the shandyland, but be careful: Some polyfill jackets only have the fill in the "core" part of the jacket, and miss out on the sleeves. Volcom is the illest around, so I would bet they have it throughout the jacket.
Sorry for the long response, but I could talk gear all day long!
