Pursuit Ski Shell is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great "all-arounder" I thoroughly enjoy this jacket. It is warm, comfortable and provides all the pockets one could ever need. My only complaint is that being a stockier guy (5'10" - 195lbs), I wish there would be more room in the armpit/lat area and the bottom of the jacket as it does restrict my range of movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and functional Good durable jacket, fit is larger than expected the medium actually feels like it’s a large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality This arrived with a separated main zipper. While fixing that the pull tab broke off. Used one from another jacket since I was heading overseas and needing the jacket. Within a couple weeks the stitching started coming undone at two different locations on the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! Great Jacket for cold weather, extremely light and comfortable for all occasions. I wear as a daily jacket because it’s so light and looks good. I was a little worried the shell would be noisy however it’s very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with my Purchase! I bought this jacket about a month and a half ago after a friend's suggestion and have been very impressed so far! It's light, has good range of movement, and has just the right amount of insulation. I'm able to wear this over my base layer and be comfortable all day. Online it says this is a shell but when I went to the BD store the tag said "Pursuit Hoodie", which is probably a more accurate description. It is DWR coated which gives it enough water resistance to be good in the snow but it's definitely not waterproof. I recently wore it in a very wet snow and after a couple of hours of skiing the outer material was soaked. I still felt warm dry, however, and after hanging up it dried fairly quickly. Overall this has been a great jacket and after a month to a month and a half of wearing it skiing and just for general use I'm very pleased. If you want a dedicated shell this probably isn't it, but for most conditions it's pretty much perfect!
