The purple color rocks! This jacket has some great features but my favorite is how well it regulates to my temp and keeps me warm.
Good things to note:
Jacket runs a bit on the snug side across the back so make sure to go up a size. Also, the hood is made to be worn with a hat only which I love but for those shredders and skiers out there that wear a helmet you would need to choose another style jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I was unsure of size and ordered a medium and a large. Most MH gear, I wear a medium, but I like to have room for lots of layers under a ski shell. I'm returning the medium because the arm holes are too snug with any layers underneath, though I preferred the overall fit.
The hood of the medium won't fit over my helmet at all, and the large will fit to about the crown of my head, but causes the collar to be really snug around my face (see attached photo). I'm not sure how well this will do when actually skiing. I'll probably cinch the hood snug against my neck, so I can tuck my face comforatably into the collar of the coat.
Otherwise the jacket seems great. The powder skirt has grippy elastic which will help hold it in place. I love the wrist cuff design. I can't wait to take it out in the snow!
I would recommend this product.

This is a great jacket, perfect for skiing. When I first tried it on, the underarm vent zippers felt a little uncomfortable and bulky under my arms, but I have since worn it skiing twice and that hasn't bothered me at all. It is very well made. In most brands I can either wear a small or extra small. I am about 5'5 and 115 pounds and the small fits perfectly. I definitely would not be comfortable with an XS in this jacket. It's cut pretty close, but I can still wear a layer or two underneath.

Beautiful jacket

I just got this jacket and I love it. It's beautiful and I've gotten endless compliments on it. It's also really nice to wear; the material has a really nice feel, the zippers are styley and I love the soft wrist-warmers at the cuffs. The cut is a little bit interesting, though; the arms are cut pretty tight while it's a bit looser around the waist and sides. I am usually a small and I had to go with a medium, which makes for a little bit of a baggy fit, while the arms are still tight. It's actually hard to wear enough layers underneath to stay warm skiing without getting bound up in the elbows and shoulders. They do need to fix this design before next year. It'll be a better shell for spring skiing.
