blackbeard I just returned a Volcom Gore-Tex L jacket in size large (L in the name is the model) because it was baggier than I would have liked, even with layers. In the end I went with another jacket so I'm not sure if the medium would have fit better. I'm relatively lean at 6'3 and 185lbs.

bklyned Can anyone tell me what the fit is like compared to the Burton Sig Fit? I'm usually a M in the AK stuff this year.

NewbALewb Haha I was thinking about buying the baldface when it goes on sale! I love that jacket...

Forgot to mention the zipper comes with a whistle too.. Comes with Recco. I think youll be happy you bought it tbh. I love my current jacket, but it has some brownish coloring on the sleeve that I hate.

Here is a pic of the lining. I just think it looks so cool.

bklyned Sweet thanks for the info guys, I think I'll take a look at the Volcom Baldface, it looks like it has everything I want. Thanks.

NewbALewb I have a volcom crack 2L jacket that comes with wrist gators. Its an awesome jacket, build quality is solid, built in face mask, the lining is covered in pictures of random stuff which looks really cool,media pocket, goggle pocket, its awesome. I will probably always buy Volcom since I got this jacket. Its good stuff.

HurtonBair Or you can buy stand alone wrist gaiters. Or buy base layers with wrist gaiters. Or use gauntlet gloves/ mitts. Don't let such a minor feature discourage you from buying a great shell when there are alternatives.

I had a Westbeach long ago with attached gaiters and all they did was get ragged and gross while the rest of the jacket still had life left in it.

ekb18c Volcom TDS jackets are pretty nice if you want to spend that much money.

Riley212 These are really good jackets, arcteryx/patagonia quality. They have nice wrist gaiters. I've worn the Lofoten one piece for three seasons, no issues.

snowman55 I have a brand new Oakely GREAT ASCENT JACKET with tags still for sale if you are interested. It's 2L Gortex and has wrist gaiters. I bought two last spring and only been using one. It's lime green. I can post pics if you are interested.

i have last years t.rice goretex jacket, it has wrist gater w/ thumb holes & Awesome build quality. I believe all quiksilver jackets have the wrist gaters but you need to get the higher end jackets (t.rice line) if you want the thumb hole.
