~FIT/SIZE~
The fit on this jacket is true to size. I just ordered the size I usually get and it fit perfectly. It still fits well if you put a hoodie or light sweatshirt on underneath it. I rate it a 5/5 for the fit. I put the size chart below in case you wanted to know the exact size.

~QUALITY/OVERALL~
The North Face is a popular name brand, but is it actually good? YES! The quality of this jacket is amazing. Unless you are/buying this for an extremely aggressive rider, it should hold up for a couple seasons. Last season was my first one wearing it, so I don't have too much to say. The drawstring-like system works really well to keep that powder out of your back. Also, the removable fleece on the inside is a great addition if you travel to different places or varying conditions. The jacket is nice and light, so it doesn't affect your mobility, but it still keeps you warm. If you live in a colder area, consider wearing a light sweatshirt/hoodie under it. The waterproofing is fantastic, you will never get wet again! Overall, I rate this jacket a solid 4.5/5. There are some things that could be improved, but it really is just a great jacket. Also, if it matters to you, there is a small selection of nice colors to choose from.
