Got this jacket at the beginning of this season and it's a fantastic shell, especially for on-area, foul weather days. Most days between 15-30 degrees F I can get away with a base layer, a light merino shirt/sweater and this shell. When it's colder I'll add a fleece or a ultralight down shirt.
When it's super cold and windy, like at the top of the Continental Divide, in January, I'll toss a down sweater underneath and then I'm toasty to almost any temperature. With big pit vents it's easy to regulate heat and moisture.
Speaking of moisture... the fleece lined collar is fantastic. It's warm and comfortable and even on super-cold days it doesn't get soaked with condensation. It stays soft and warm all day long.
It's a burly shell with lots of stash pockets. Some reviewers have complained about it having too many pockets, but to that I say, "then buy a different jacket."
I love having well-designed and properly located separate pockets for gear, keys, snacks, shades, goggles, iPhone, and GoPro remote.
Now for the minor complaints:
It's roomy in the shoulders but a little tight in the waste. I'm 5'7" and about 170 so I'm stocky, but it does feel tighter than it should around the powder skirt, even when I'm not snapping the powder skirt. It's not uncomfortable, but it looks a little odd to me.
Another slight complaint is that the hood really doesn't fit a helmet very well. I have a pretty low-pro helmet but the hood barely fits over it, and when the hood is up it's not comfortable as it pulls the jacket in all directions.l The hood is easily removed, tho, so when it's not dumping or raining it can go.
Last minor gripe is with the zippers. No bottom zipper, which is sometimes nice to unzip on the lift to vent or to paint the snow yellow. Also, the pit zips are difficult to zip and unzip by yourself.
So that's the full skinny. Overall it's a great jacket and I am very glad to have it. I'd recommend it, but just be aware of some of the caveats.
I got this jacket specifically for my backcountry kit. It is pretty light, and the GoreTex keeps you nice and dry and the wind out. It also has a pretty slim fit, especially for a jacket. I'm 5 10", 150 lbs. and the small fits me absolutely perfect. The only downside to that is it doesn't leave too much room for layering, but a base layer or 2 and my patagucci down vest fits just fine underneath.
That being said, I would not recommend this jacket for skiing groomers on really cold days at a ski area or any situation where you aren't generating a good amount of body heat and would need lots of insulation or lots of layering. The fit is a bit tight I guess but it suits my build fine. If you are thick or lift lots of weights I would definitely try a couple sizes on before ordering it. I rated the jacket 4 stars because I haven't had the chance to test it in a super heavy storm yet.
Haven't had a chance to wear this on the slopes yet. Been wearing it around town as a rain/cold weather jacket. I wear a large and this jacket is roomy, which will be great for layering when I ski. It's a definite step up from the Patagonia Snowshot. Look forward to see how it handles the wind at Heavenly. The gortex material seems rugged and I would imagine can handle all conditions well.
Excellent quality and design. The only problem was that the fit was not quite right for me. At 6-5 240 the XXL was the perfect length but it was a bit too constricting through the back/shoulders as I prefer a looser fit. Returned without any problems.
I have had this jacket for the past two ski seasons and I love it! The Gore-Tex keeps me dry all day. I'm 6'3 225lbs and it fits me great. It is on the more expensive end, however its worth the money.
I'm 5'9" 180lbs and the Medium fits like a glove. Long jacket and pow skirt prevent snow from getting in. Gore Tex keeps me bone dry. Jacket is great for layering, light weight, and well constructed. Patagonia didn't disappoint with this one.
I just bought this jacket and am very impressed. I am 6' 2" and 180 lb.. I bought a medium, and it fits great. I have no complaints. The quality is what I would expect from Patagonia.
I`m surprised about a few reviews saying the jacket runs small, I think it is actually true for the size and has enough space for layering, it`s much bigger than my OR mentor jacket. I`ve used this jacket on snowing days, melting snow spring days and even rain. The jacket is very waterproof, but not perfect on breathability, I usually need to open the pit zips in the chair lift. The features are nice and it has a lot of pockets, maybe too much for my taste. THe powder skirt if great and will attach to any patagonia pants, I use it with the powder bowl pants and they work well together. A few bad things, the collar is too small and I can`t zip it all the way, the hood is somehow useless if you use helmet because it is not helmet compatible, it go over the helmet but it is very hard to first put it over a medium size helmet and also keep it over the helmet. The cuffs are large enough to to use gauntlet gloves under the cuffs, I`ve used hestra xcr mitt under the cuff with no problems, can`t do that with the Mentor jacket. I wouldn`t pay full price on this jacket but definitely a good piece if you get it on sale, I just had a few days on it, but it looks like a bomb proof piece, I had some really bad falls and no sign of wear/tear.
