From night riding in the slush/rain to blue bird runs in the sidecountry I have been very pleased with the Vanskier.
PROS: I love the three drop pockets inside the coat; I don't need to bring a pack most of the time. The hood is huge and definitely helmet compatible. Sleeves run long but can be cinched to go over or under gloves. As far as the warmth and breathability go, I've been very happy. I took the jacket for a week long trip to Utah and didn't wear a mid-layer once! Even with a thinner base-layer I was perfectly comfortable on chilly days once I started riding. I found myself getting warm easily in this jacket but never started to sweat so it's breathable enough for me.
CONS: Fabric durability. The cuffs and other high wear areas of the jacket have already started to fray. If you ride in the trees and/or are rough on your clothes, consider the impact on this face fabric. It appears to be a looser weave on close inspection. While the jacket feels nice and isn't overly noisy, I don't expect this will last for as many years as I'd initially hoped. My other disappointment with this jacket is the main body's Vislon zipper. The way the inner fabric lining is sewn is too loose and the zipper gets stuck 80% of the time when trying to open/close the jacket. I anticipate the inner fabric ripping eventually. The mobile phone pocket is too small for today's large smartphones so I use a drop pocket.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket for a skiing, but I wear it every where. It keeps me warm no matter the weather, skiing or walking the dog.
Since the jacket is insulated, I tend to get warm skiing. All I wear is a base layer and this jacket and I am warm, sometimes too warm. The underarm zips helps to regulate temperature.
The fit is great! I am 5'9" and 150 lbs, I bought a Medium and it fits great!
I would recommend this jacket to those who have a tendency to get cold.
Enjoy!
I would recommend this product.

The Vanskier Jacket, Daphnia Pant and Thermostatic Vest make up my dream team for those negative degree days. It's the perfect combination for keeping me warm and dry on icy bike commutes and fresh powder days.
I would recommend this product.
