I've owned and used the Rubicon Rider for going on two seasons now and it has yet to let me down in the slightest.

It is, first and foremost, a snowboarding jacket and in this arena it performs beautifully. The sleeve length is awesome for a tall girl and there is awesome freedom of motion without things riding up or bunching. I love the hardshell reinforcements, especially on the elbows. All in all, it serves its purpose.

However, I also use this as my go-to winter jacket in the deep freeze that is a Chicago winter. I layer with a 200-300 fleece and I do just fine (while everyone else is swathed in uni-purpose down). It's pretty smart-looking too!

Only drawback is: the hood is HUGE. I know it's helmet compatible but I never pull a hood on over my helmet, I find it redundant and impairing. I could, however, use a hood while out walking the dog or on the lift when just a beanie will not do. Even cinched down, it falls over my eyes and blinds me.

But overall, great, great piece that serves two purposes at a relatively low price point.

Fabric: Polyester with DWR
Fill: recycled polyester fiber fill
