Flylow makes quality gear. Should be pretty good in wet snow storms too. The thing is that it's puffy. I would only want that jacket if I was riding in a place where temps are colder than most places. Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Canada, Alaska, come to mind. If you are riding on the West coast, Washington, California, etc, this is probably way over kill. Even here in Colorado, I am not sure there are three months of the season where I would want that. Late December until mid Feb is the time frame where I would most likely want something like that for riding.

yeah i would just buy a shell jacket and then layer underneath imo that's the best way to stay warm.
