The Vail Puffy is an excellent jacket for the everyday cold and wet winters of the PNW. Likely this isn't your first puffy jacket so you'll know how to use one, we just brought a little retro style to a PNW staple. We chose a durable, UV resistant polyester shell, liner, and fill material for durability and inherent weather and water resistance properties. This thing insulates like crazy and keeps the weather out. Best used as a stylish winter coat or a warm mid layer for the coldest of days on the ski hill.
FEATURES: ribbed elastic waste and hood cuffs, hidden elastic wrist cuff, snug fit waste hem line to keep the breeze out, slim fit, snug sleeves, inner pockets, TAF custom zipper pulls, snag free zipper guards, reinforced closed inner seams, zip off hoodie, and smooth sliding heavy duty zipper.
FIT: This jacket is cut slim for a sleek casual profile and for best use as a mid layer for skiing/snowboarding. BUT, if you want a bit of room then we recommend you size up, this polyester doesn't have much stretch to maintain its water/wind resistance. A 6' 190lb man with an athletic build will fit snugly in a L. But a 34-36" waist or broad shouldered man of the same size should for sure size up to an XL.
