Now the Stormbound is good to about 15F depending on how you are and what layers (I tested it with a t-shirt and fleece on in 16F degree)you have on..it can go further with the more layers...so this jacket will do 0F if you dress for it. I just hate tons of layers especially for everyday use. But remember, It is a ski jacket first...that is its roots. So it is for someone active in it...that is why it has pit zips and isnt as heavy insulation wise. It has a ton of features that if you ski will love! Powder Skirt is great for Colorado or out west skiing in deep powder so you dont get it up you back while you are skiing or if you wreck. Lift ticket clip is nice as well as the pass pocket. It has an integrated balaclava which is cool if you snowmobile, ice fish (with the right layers), or ski in the cold! The hood is insulated and can be zipped off. The shell seems tough and is fully waterproof and breathable. Oh and it has a locator if you get in an avalanche! They can find you!!
I did not get this on amazon for I found it for a much better deal elsewhere...for this coat starts to get up there in cost, still not bad at retail for what it offers but I try to never pay retail ever!Read more ›
1) the shell is adaptive and moves well with your body
2) the hood fits over my RED Avid helmet easily, allows me to zip up the collar, and provides a bit of head movement
3) has all the usual tech: fully taped seams, water resistant zippers, down, removable powder skirt, etc.
4) bonus: removable built-in balaclava
5) seems like it's configured to allow you to "batten down the hatches" on a cold snowy day, or stay cool on a warm day if you just wear a base-layer, unzip everything, and remove components (balaclava, snow skirt)
In my opinion the jacket has a great cut. It doesn't pull on my shoulders, but still conforms to my frame. It's also very cozy; I feel like I'm wearing a hoodie. I tried the grey color on and liked it, but ended up getting the blue instead.
As I was reading jacket reviews for Outdoor Research, Patagonia, Mountain Hardware, etc., I found this criteria from a reviewer on the Patagonia site: I want to "put [the jacket] on and forget that I am wearing it". The Stormbound jacket meets this requirement 100% and remains fully functional, so I highly recommend it.
5'11" 145lbs with broad shoulders: size small (medium was too baggy, small is just right)
Update: I used the jacket this weekend at Stowe. Temps were in the 20's with wind/snow. I was comfortable with just a light baselayer and stayed warm and dry. I felt very mobile in the jacket.Read more ›
Ok, so this was designed as a ski jacket and has a "helmet compatible" hood. In this case, they compromised on both sides. Over a helmet, it's a little tight and without a hat or helmet, it's too loose and sloppy, and just looks stupid. HOWEVER, if you fold the brim under, it will be much less annoying and even look normal when wearing it around town. This is my pet peeve with helmet compatible hoods. The one size fits both never really does. This is something I think outdoor apparel designers need to get right.
First off, it's down and for a ski or snowboard jacket, it should keep you very warm on even the coldest days without much need for extra insulation for your core as long as you're somewhat active. I haven't used the pit zips yet, but they do zip up and down without much more effort than other jackets I've had that included pit zips.
Around town in cold, wintery weather, you might require a light sweater or more underneath because this isn't a jacket that's designed to keep you toasty if you're just standing around in freezing temps. But the down hood, if worn will hold in a good amount of heat.
I'm 5'11" and 150 lbs. I bought the medium and it's almost too big. A small would have probably fit, but since I might use it snowboarding, I'd rather it be slightly too big than slightly too small.
I bought the black one. The great thing about that one is it looks like a normal winter jacket for around town (which is what I wanted for seattle winters). The rest of the colors were all pretty boring in my opinion. They don't appeal to me as ski clothing colors or regular jacket colors.Read more ›
