"Versatle, Funcional Ski or Snowboard Jacket!"
I have worn this skiing a few times now, and i love this coat! The fact that it has TONS of pocket space makes it versatile. I am able to carry my phone, headphones, snacks, etc. so easily. Im 5'3" and 125 and i ordered a Medium. Its a little long on the sleeves, but the velcro closure at the wrist helps with the length. The medium allows me to wear some layers underneath on cold days. With a long johns and a decent sweater, it made my recent ski trip is 20 degree temps a lot more fun. I can also say that the coat is a bit long for my petite body, but it helped sitting on the snow-covered lifts as my bottom stayed dry! The hood was great and large enough to wear even with a helmet. The jacket is a perfect fit and the perfect weight for skiing or snowboarding. I am also hoping to get use out if it form some winter hikes and snowshoeing. I gave it "Big Ups" and not a "Love It" only because i wish Patagonia made Petite size jackets. Still, i always seem to make them work!
