mikeg I have the Night Witch pullover shell and the quarter zip baselayer, both have been awesome all season. The only negative about the pull over is that it doesn't have an inner powder skirt, just some cinching at the bottom hem. Been staying pretty dry so far though.

Deviant I'll update this too. My season is over due to an injury last day of vacation in Telluride but the jacket still shows no signs of wear and I purchased it before the season started. Wind hater hood was great up on the higher parts of Telluride too.

Also the cocona base layer has been the most odor-free garment of clothing I've ever owned.

Banjo 15 day update! Jacket is still awesome, no new issues except....

The zipper tab broke...insert paperclip. Emailed them with a few pics and got this back the next day:

"Sorry to hear about the broken zipper. There was a handful of wrong zipper heads that our factory put on some of the shells. Sounds like your was one of those. Anyways we can ship you a replacement zipper head. Please shoot me your address and we will get it shipped out ASAP."

Good product, good CS.

snowman55 Look for it on WM. I got the black one for $49 today on WM. They had black, tan and violet like colors available.

Banjo I have now got 8 days with this jacket, and I must say that if you see one on WM and are thinking about a new jacket, pull the trigger.

The OP is a great review, and I completely agree about the functionality of the hood/collar. A few windy days, warm days and days with sleet. The jacket was plenty waterproof, plenty warm, and the best part : anything that WAS wet at the end of the day, the jacket was bone dry by the time night riding opened up!

I too got the medium, but am a bit bigger than a few who posted about it before, I am 5'9 but 190lbs. Still fit great, lots of room to layer.

Only complaint is that with the media pocket on the outside, your device can get cold fast and kill the battery.

Midwest here, venture east now and again but with the Great Lakes our weather changes pretty quickly (tonight turning to rain suddenly)

Can't decide between a medium and a large. I'm 5'11" , 170 lbs. Any thoughts? About to pull the trigger on the "earth" color at backcountry.com.
Not sure if you already bought it, but for you I'd probably go large. 5 foot 8 155 here and I wear a medium.

10,000 in my opinion is fine for almost any type of riding. Majority of us don't ride in constant rain or lay on the snow for long so I dont think its an issue. My HellyHansen pants are 10k waterproof as well and its fine for the riding I do as well.

mesh liner??? you mean there is a separate, loose layer of mesh flapping around between you and the shell like some cheap warm-up/track suit? fuck that. i'll never buy anything with that bullshit.

i like the idea behind the collar but if it come up to your goggles that's too high. i like to ride with my collar zipped all the way up ~90% of the time and this seems like it might be too much. i will only buy jackets with this style of one piece hood/collar (no collar behind the neck just hood) so the design is good with me - but if it has a mesh liner it is not a shell and i wouldn't wear it.
The mesh is like a vest, arms aren't included in that material, and it's not removable.

The collar only comes up to my goggles when I have the hood up. Otherwise on the lift in the wind I tuck my face down into the collar.

Depends where you ride, I ride in Utah/Colorado mostly and my pants are 10k and my jackets only 5k. Unless you are making snow angels I don't really see the issue but that's just me.

Justin there is a bunch on whiskeymilita.com in the get kitted tab or the outerwear tab. More than half off.
