I live in SoCal, where the weather isn't too extreme, so this jacket is great for layering or for the transition from Fall through the transition from Winter to Spring. The fit is true, but is loose enough to accommodate layering for those days when it's cold in the morning but warms up substantially by late morning. Good quality, although I wash it inside-out to avoid sanguine, which would be an issue with any windbreaker type of synthetic fabric. I've had to repair a few unravelling seams, but I think that's more my fault than the construction because I get a bit physical in my routine.
The look of this jacket is insane! I am a girl and was hoping that the men’s small would be a little big on me but it is not. I am returning and getting a larger size. Hope this will be a good spring snowboarding jacket!
