Key Features of The Special Blend Signature Snowboard Jacket:
Among my friends, this jacket has earned the nickname of snowboarding raincoat. We were once snowboarding in heavy heavy rain, everyone was soaking execpt me. You definitely want to layer under it though
I bought this jacket because it was on sale but I dont think it would be worth $350+. It's a great jacket but the material seems very thin. I hope I'm wrong but it feels like it could tear very easily. The green pattern is brighter than it looks in the picture. The fit is good and it lets you move around in a much nicer way than my last jacket. I've used it a bit and it kept me nice and dry. Overall it's a good coat.
I bought this jacket because it was a great price at 70% off, or else I would probably never spend $300+ on a jacket. In the picture the Black fader flage looks gray and black, but really has a purple tint on the shell of the jacket and the liner is straight up royal purple. Not really a fan of the regal flair, but the jacket fits perfect and I love everything else about it. Just be careful picking the colors when buying online, try looking up pics from other sites to make sure you're checking out the right colors, in different lighting some clothes look different
Me: 38in chest, 32-33in waist. 5'8. Roughly 148lbs. I got a size small. It fits well on me. Loose, but not baggy. I normally wear mediums in street clothing and sweater. This jacket fits loose even though it is a small. This is an awesome jacket. Its Gore-Tex. I have the 09' version. My other jacket is a Burton Ronin (10k). This jacket feels a whole lot sturdier. I would like it better if the zipper was larger for easier zipping with gloves on while on the slopes. I would have given this a 5 star had it not been for the zipper. But even with that, this jacket is the bomb!!. Totally waterproof
Overall I am pretty happy with this jacket. Normally I would wear a large but knowing special blend I ordered a medium. Fits good except for the sleeves which ride up over my gloves a lot. Outer shell material is thin but seems to hold up alright. Too much velcro. Gets stuck to itself a lot.
