Homeschool Night Witch Pullover Shell - Men's
The lesser-known heroes of WWII were a group of Soviet women pilots who flew by night over Germany. They flew in less-than-ideal aircraft and, by the end of the war, each flew an average of 1,000 missions, most of them successful. So successful, in fact, that their target enemy begun calling them the Night Witches. The Homeschool Night Witch Pullover Shell, very much like its namesake, is capable of defeating odds (in this case, nasty weather like the fierce precipitation of the Pacific Northwest) in order to accomplish its goal (to have fun while snowboarding, of course).

Favorite Jacket to snowboard in
November 18, 2011
I absolutely love the pullover design and the kangaroo pocket. This jacket hands-down is my favorite jacket to snowboard in. I put in well over a hundred days last season, 80% of the time I wore the night witch. Comfortable, with loose enough fit to lay down some serious turns. I would call it state of the art shred wear technology.

No powder skirt,or hand/wrist gators. I bought it because it said it did. No mesh in the pit zips either.which could be good,but mostly bad for riding pow.nice material though.
NO POWDER SKIRT

dont get this jacket if you are planning to snowboard with it, cause there is no powder skirt. i also got the bronze color and it turned out to be way darker in person than in the picture, almost brown looking, so dont expect the "gold" look like did. Also i agree with the lack of features, there is a big kangaroo pocket but thats about it other than a chest pocket for an ipod. also there is no lining in the arm vents, just a big gap....weird design, probably going to return it.

I was stoked to find some new gear made with high quality materials that was not the same burton ak that everyone else has. While the fabric of this jacket seems very durable and techy, i have no doubts as to its waterproof and breathability. I am dissapointed however that this jacket has no powder skirt, even though the description says it does. there are also no wrist gaiters. the underarm vents have no mesh lining. I'm 6'1" average size and the large fit pretty well, but was a bit tight in the shoulders/chest. you could definately fit 1-2 technical (tight) layers underneath with decent range of motion but if you like your stuff baggy then size up.
I had spent a bit of time looking through the homeschool site and thought that all of their stuff had jacket/pant interface tech on them, but apparently I picked the 1 item out of 7 that doesnt have it. I also got the skweetis pants which are supposed to have the jacket/pant interface but all i see is normal belt loops no snaps like on my old special blend.
The hood fits over my helmet (smith variant) but its very snug and causes the whole jacket to "ride up" a bit, further highlighting the need for a powder skirt or jacket/pant connection. I really like the cuffs and the media pocket but no pow skirt or vent mesh make this too easy to get wet from snow no matter how quickly you shed body moisture.
I will end up returning both items, but will still be watching out for new designs as they have some things going for them.
for those who ride in any weather

I got this jacket in the fall and I am in love. The pullover design is awesome and the kangaroo pocket in front is huge so you can stash anything in it. Very heavy duty zippers on all pockets is also a nice feature. The waterproofing on this jacket is something else, I live at the base of Mt. Hood in Oregon which is basically the rain forest so this jacket fits my needs perfectly. A couple weeks ago it was pouring down rain at my local resort, the snow was still good and fast so I went out in the Night witch and spent 5 hours cruisin' with a huge smile on my face because I was still dry while all my friends were soaked. I would have to say this jacket breathes better than any Gore-Tex jacket I have ever owned, Cocona Tech could possibly be magic. I would recommend this jacket to everyone who likes to stay dry and snowboard in any weather. Good work Homeschool snowboarding!
