"Awesome jacket" 5/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Taipan Snowboard Softshell Jacket
  • Pros:  Material is nice and soft, Pocket with lens wiper attatched, Well insulated for a shell
  • Cons:  No thumb inserts for the sleeve, No waist straps to block out snow,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   The jacket is well fitted and true to size. If you're planning to add thick layers of thermal underneath then go a size larger. This fitted me fine and i'm only planning to wear one layer of thermal. The length is good, not too short or too long. There isn't a waist strap to block out the snow though, so there is a possibility for snow to ride up your back when you fall.

"Warm + Dry = Love it!" 12/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Taipan Snowboard Softshell Jacket
  • Pros:  Light, Very dry, Sweet looks
  • Cons:  Could use more pockets,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Slim fitting

Experience:   I bought this just before I went boarding in Breck a couple of weeks ago and it worked like a charm. Over two days, we had 21 of snow coming down and this jacket with the 15,000mm waterproofing kept me completely dry. For a soft shell, this also kept me very warm. I just had a base layer of thermals and a thicker sweatshirt under this jacket and it was very comfortable. The magnetic buttons that keep the zipper covered up were a nice feature, though I wish there were a couple more pockets. A plastic covered pocket in the sleeve for the season pass would be nice. Lastly, I got the white dirt print and was a bit concerned about camouflaging in the snow. Not an issue. In the videos that my buddy took, I can see that I shouldn't have been worried. I love the print and the way it fits with my overall look (grey pants, burton custom 2009 board with white cartel ESTs) :)

"Rome Taipan Softshell Jacket" 8/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Taipan Snowboard Softshell Jacket
  • Pros:  Audio pocket, Great as casual wear,
  • Cons:  Could do with an extra pocket inside or out,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too small
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Maybe it was mislabelled, but it seemed a bit small for it's size

Experience:   Love this jacket, except the size might be a bit small on the one I have. It is not out of place when worn casually off the snow. Audio pocket doubles as a mobile phone pocket, but could still do with an extra pocket or 2 on the inside or outside.
