Love this jacket. Has a very fitted form, but not like emo hugging tight. It's more like a street jacket. Very classy pinstripe fabric, almost looks like a regular blazer with faux buttons. Storm flap locks down tight and a big + is the removable hood. Really fuzzy and comfortable microfiber around the neck and in the pockets. Wrist gaiters are a nice touch, and again, very warm. <br>
Confused about the headphone line, as it doesn't seem to connect to the audio interface pocket on the sleeve. There's basically only 4 pockets. 2 of them are zipped ones on the front with flaps, 1 is a goggle bag inside (with a goggle wipe, NICE TOUCH!), and one is the audio interface pocket. Not that many if you need to carry a bunch of stuff. Not a problem for me though, since I wear a backpack on the slopes. <br>
The powder skirt is really nice with easy adjustability lengthwise and widthwise. It's 10/10 so, not the most waterproof out there, but I've ridden almost chest high in POW with this and not gotten soaked. I've never had to open the pitzips yet, even in 40 degree temps, it just breathes so darn well! Jacket to pant interface is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. Vans may very well be my new favorite outerwear company! This is a winner!
