special blend is a great brand. I personally prefer BonFire because of all the snaps and zippered compartments. I stay dry and comfortable all the way down the mountain and especially on the frigid lift

lol I have 2 of those...the DC Spectrum and the Burton Poacher. The DC is a nice jacket but not the warmest and it's really a waterproof soft shell. The poacher sucks and fits weird IMO and the waterproofing sucks. Out of all of them go Bonfire or SB if it's your only jacket. If you are looking for a lighter warm weather coat I like the DC Spectrum!

Learn to layer. Im guessing it would be mid weight due to the picture of the insie, which is usually good as its normally fine to wear as just a jacket but rarely gets too hot like a heavy weight or puffer jacket would. Buy it. also have you seen the tan threepeat?

im lookin for a thiner jacket for the easter and spring, and i am looking into the dc spectrum. i wont bother buying like a proper winter jacket now that the weather is getting warmer and stuff. with the dc im planning to use it in the late season as its so thin, and use it in the spring and maybe on cold rainy summer days.

the only thing is: the only ones left are in L, and im just wondering if its going to b too big. i like baggy jackets, but if they are like too huge its just ugly. im about 174cm high(5.7 ft?) and have like a skinny/fit body shape. what size have u got and how high are u, and how does it fit? just wanna make sure im not wasting my cash
