As a tall skier this coat fits very well, the XXL one I had is long in the body and arms which is ideal. The colour is nice, more a Blood-red than the picture shows. There is a inner waterproof MP3 pocket. At 5000 Windproof and 5000 waterproof ratings, it's quite clearly and the lower end of the performance ranges, but hopefully should be fine for European skiing where it doesn't get silly cold.
My only concern is the fixed hood which can't be detached. Seems an odd design choice when so many skiers and boarders where helmets these days. Not convinced by this, and it may prove to be an annoying feature in an otherwise fine jacket.
Will update the review when it's been ski-tested.
EDIT: Ski tested, and the jacket was great. nice and warm when used with a couple of base layers, and the hood wasn't annoying in any way (infact, it was big enough to go over my helmet and keep the wind out). Also discovered some hooks in the pockets to attach things like cameras and phones with straps to, so they don't go falling off ski lifts).
