I bought this jacket for alpine skiing a few years back, because we had a cold winter and I wanted to acquire a warmer jacket. So I pick up this one because it was long enough to cover my lower back. It was also on sale at 70% off, probably because of the flash lime colors!

I usually wear a base layer and a polar under, and when it get really cold I can easily add up another layer. So this said you can imagine that it's made big! I usually wear medium, but this one is a enormous medium, so I could have downsize to a small (I'm 6ft and 155 pounds).

It has an inside skirt, that can be remove with a zipper. It has 6 pockets—2 hands, 2 chest, 1 right arm, and 1 inside mesh. Integrated hand warmer at the end of the sleeves and Velcro adjustable cuffs. Chin cover with a comfy fleece lining. Outside fabric is great and it's insulation: Duck Down 90/10, 700 fill power.

The are few drawbacks: first is that I cannot wear my hood over my ski helmet, and it rubs on the back of my head when I rotate. Oh, this is a heavy jacket. I saw that the new version is made of Pertex, so probably lighter. The pocket zippers are small and cannot be manage with gloves.
