This jacket just arrived today and it is exactly what I have been looking for. Its got a really loose fit to it that is perfect for snowboard style and the grateful dead inspired design is just beautiful, Removable hood is a great bonus too. Its got pockets for everything you need, its got an adjustable waist which i tightened up a bit to be snug around me waist. Its also really comfy and gives you alot of freedom of movement and just looks so freaking awesome. Im sure it will be water and wind proof as its 20k rated, But so far it fits and looks and functions like the perfect jacket would. if it performs well too its 6 stars from me yeewwwww!👌
