Description: Special Blend Spice Snowboard Jacket - Womens
This Special Blend Spice Snowboard Jacket Castle Wall is hot. It will keep you warm on the coldest slopes and will last run after run. You won't have to worry about this Jacket being ripped to shreds after you take a few falls because on top of looking great, this Jacket is made for durability. You'll catch eyes as you zoom by and you'll be the talk of the slopes when you turn down a cup of cappuccino. This jacket is hot.
The only gripe I had about this jacket was that its sleeves were a bit short on my girlfriend. Apart from that, it's a PERFECT JACKET! It's plain and black with a nice blue tinge who just looks awesome! Very good quality and very warm as well
This jacket has a slim/smaller fit and I would definitely order one size up if going to be using this jacket on the mountain. I have a very similar Special Blend jacket in a size small that I wear around town but ordered this jacket in a medium for snowboarding. The jacket feels kinda short in the sleeves and the stretchy band at the waist is not waterproof so can get wet when strapping in, on powder days, and if you crash:) Overall cute jacket with a powder skirt, pit zips, and a removable hood
Bought this for a friend in 09' in the black wildthang print, and while she liked it, I'm not sold on the design. But for the price it's great, kept her warm and reasonably dry all season. Probably wouldn't buy if I was hitting powder everyday but for Australia this jacket will be good for any day on the slopes
The jacket was purchased for my wife. Since she wears normally XS she picked SMALL size and was prepared to have it a little baggy rather than getting XS which would be too small. When it arrived it fitted just right - chest, sleeves, waste... Warm, good quality for a few seasons solid. Jo-jo pass holder is not probably the best solution but will do the job
I wanted to grab a cheaper jacket that I wouldn't have to worry about messing up. This jacket more than does the job. Got mine in the 'black wildthang' color, not too crazy about leopard print but it looks decent on this jacket. I like that it has a compact feel, yet I can still throw on some layers underneath. Special Blend makes good quality stuff
I really love the look of this jacket but I would probably be buying it two sizes up. Because of the style it is quite short in the body and the elasticated ribbing at the bottom of the jacket just rides up to the waist and you end up getting snow all down your pant. I like my jackets a bit bigger and longer so they keep the snow out and this jacket does not do that. Good jacket for off the slopes.
