This jacket is the best to date. It is a shell and you should layer with this piece. 3 outside pockets, 2 hand one chest all with water proof zippers and generous pull tabs. Chest pocket has a media pocket. Inside there is a velcro closure pocket. The hood has a one side pull that pulls from the inside of the chest pocket to stay hidden from view. There is a soft brim wire to mold the brim of the hood and a magnet on the back that snaps onto another on the back of te jacket to help hold in place when not in use. Front zipper is wide, smooth and offset to keep your chin from getting chaffed. Arms are articulated and have open pit zip venting. Wrists closure is a velcro adjustment so you can fit your glove inside the wrist and also have hand gaskets. Snow skirt is removable and snaps to Primed Bid or can zip to other Oakley pants that have that option to make a one piece to keep you dry in deep powder. My colorway Enamel Mint/Dark Forest has embroidered skulls on the side of the hood.
