Measure your favourite piece of well fitting, not-too-stretchy clothing and compare it to the size chart below. Just make sure you have enough room for thermal underwear layers and a hearty lunch at the snow :)
The heading says it all. We are not all size 6-8 and this jacket has sleeves that don't come down to my knees! Jacket arrived within 3 days of ordering. For is true to sizing chart, features are as described. Appears to be a good functional jacket that actually fits. Looking forward to wearing it this season. Thank you ski and board team for thinking about the larger sizes in the population. An online shopping convert here.
I bought this jacket a few weeks ago for a winter trip to the US. It's very comfortable and is made well - I'm really happy with it. Unfortunately I ordered a size that ended up being too small, but Monica was really helpful and I exchanged for a larger size. Delivery was prompt and the service was great.
I spent a fair bit of time shopping on this site - checking my measurements against those for different styles, and I nailed it!
I ordered two jackets and two pants (to make sure - and because they were quite different style jackets). The Brooklyn jacket is just exactly what you need. It fits, it's comfy, it looks good, and having returned from skiing in NZ, yep, it's wonderfully warm in minus temperatures with some decent wind chill! My one "what the???" about it is the fur on the hood - seems like an afterthought (if I left the fur on, the hood would have extended way too far over my face!). I think the fur on the hood is more for the apres/sitting on your back look, rather than having a hood over your head and being in the snow!! But I unzipped that, left it at home, and all good.
The XTM jacket - I know they say sizing is large, but it was seriously HUUUUGE!. It was always fighting a losing battle against the Brooklyn jacket.
With the pants - I went the raiski savona (a suggestion of Monica's - btw - she's really helpful!) - the measurement for the leg length of these IS slightly longer some of the other pants on the site (which I had been tempted to order). REALLY glad I did this - I needed that little bit more (only JUST made it with length, and whilst I'm a little bit taller than the average bear, I'm not a giant in height.). The aggression Bolivia that I ordered (as a backup for pants in sizing) - no, they are mens that might suit some women, not women's.
So, happy skier here - if only the good shopping experience had translated to an improvement in my ski skills!
Highly recommend Monica and plus snow - it's nice to have stuff that fits!
Prior to ordering the Brooklyn jacket I made an enquiry to Monica regarding its length in comparison to another jacket I was considering. Monica's response was swift, provided great detail and was honest. In follow-up emails, I found Monica to be thorough and very keen to provide the best service possible . . . I am most grateful. The Brooklyn Jacket (black) fits true to size and is a little more 'dressy' than it appears in the photo which is a bonus. I love the fact that the hood is removable and the velcro tabs on the sleeves allow for adjustments where necessary. This jacket has a lovely texture and appears very well made. I'm looking forward to testing it out in a European winter.
