This is a really cool and functional snowboard jacket. I really like color of the inside liner and this coat has nice pockets. The zipper has occasionally got temporarily stuck. When zipped all the way up the zipper has hit me in the chin/lip from flapping up in the wind.
Another great jacket from Special Blend. I really like the fit on this jacket. I have this in a large and it fits like a large. This jacket is very warm and will keep you dry. I have the Castle Wall color and it does have a tendency to get dirty but not too bad.
I ordered this jacket off of flea bay and I got it for a really good deal. It has a lot of pockets and there are so many different ways to keep your pass. There's an id holder thingy in the right main pocket, and there is even like a tether leash on the inside to keep your pass also! The one complaint I do have though, is that the sleeves and skirt are a little shorter than I am use to, so snow was getting in once in a while. This is a great shell jacket for those not so cold days
I bought the Brent Plaid style of this jacket for the 2010 season for a great price! I would wear a light hoodie under this shell and it did the job, except for some of those bitter cold days up at Targhee. I loved the compatible snow skirt with my S.B. pants, to keep out the pow. The only issue that I had with the jacket was towards the end of the season it started to absorb water. However this was after riding about three times a week on average. So for the price at which I purchased this was a great deal on a sick jacket!
Rode this jacket (2009) in the 2010 season cause I got it for a great price here here! Had to size down, but once I did it was near perfect. A light hoodie + this jacket = perfect comfort here on the freezing ice coast.Would have given it 5 stars, except the front zipper is so damn annoying and often gets stuck while zipping both up and down.
The jacket is a large but can easily be x-large. The feel of the jacket is good and the multiple pockets are great. If you are looking for a more baggy look and feel, this is the perfect jacket. The hood also seems to be too tight around the head when i put it on
