I originally bought this for ice climbing, and while it was great for that, I ended up using it as a snowboard jacket more than anything else. This coat will take a POUNDING. I took it out in everything from backcountry bootpacks, to Jay Peaks glades, and it never let me down, the one thing I wish it had is a powder skirt, but it has a drawstring waist, and no snow EVER got in, even on powder days. Although it's not marketed as waterproof, I never had any problems with it leaking, and I got caught in a rainstorm at Stowe, it's highly breathable too boot.
