My favorite jacket so far.

I've been skiing for more than 30 years. I like shells with appropriate layers rather than a bulky jacket. My needs are lightweight, waterproof, pit zips, powder skirt, sufficient length, sufficient arm length.
This jacket nailed it. Most fancy brands' shells are so short that you can't bend over to buckle your boots without plumber's crack. The same goes for the arm length. Not this one, I can bend over and stretch my arms without pulling on the jacket....and without a baggy fit. It is somewhere between euro fairy tight (sorry Hannes Webhoffer) and jib slacker loose.....just right.
Material is very light, never got me wet through spring snow dumps, and has some stretch to it.
The hand gaiter thingies are a bit tight, and the left one was so tight that it ripped. After it ripped, it fits perfect!
I'm 5'8" average build and a men's medium is perfect. I don't wear a helmet and the hood can cinch down to a good size.
