Okay, I've given this a couple months to really put this jacket through the ringer and give it an honest review...
Pros: highly adjustable and thoughtfully designed features - single pull rear adjustment and dual side adjustments of the hood are great and easily accommodate a helmet without budging; hidden dual adjustments on skirt help to keep out snow; wind proof and rain resistant; dual chest pockets easily fit a phone/snacks/etc.; generous venting from pit-zips; GREAT color options - the autumn gold is super unique and stands out; seam seals on the zippers are high quality and keeps everything nice and dry underneath; slim-fit style, but still enough space to layer as needed
Cons: Zippers get caught on the seam seals; not enough pockets - only 2 chest pockets and no waist pockets or interior pocket.
Overall, this is a fantastic high-quality NH-made hard-shell jacket on par, if not better than, similar hard-shells on the market. I've brought this out ski touring, mountaineering, ice climbing, hiking, and resort skiing and it has exceeded my expectations in performance, durability, and packability (it's not super stiff and doesn't wrinkle) across all kinds of activities. I absolutely love 99% of this jacket, but would love to see the addition of waist pockets and/or interior pockets. My hands get cold quickly and having a windproof layer to tuck my hands into the pockets of is a must. This is a welcomed addition to my layering system and will come along on many more adventures!
For reference, 5'7" ~135lbs, typically size 4/6 S/M, and the medium fits perfect with room for layering.
