5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and value,
This review is from: Nebulus Rockshell Men's Softshell Ski Jacket (Sports Apparel)
I bought this jacket and the matching NEBULUS Softshell ski trousers (Q298). The quality is excellent, the fit is perfect, the garments look great and I am very pleased.
The softshell is top notch and lined with a mixture of thick fleece and membrane making it very warm and breathable.
Sizing : I am 5' 8" with a 44" chest and a 36" waist. The "Large" size in both items fits me like a glove. The jacket is fitted enough to be worn over just a base layer but with enough room for mid-layers if required.
Colour : In certain light (specifically under dichroic halogen lights) the black can look like a very dark brown particularly if you hold it up against something else black. In normal lighting conditions it is absolutely fine.
Price : I doubt anyone would ever pay the listed RRP of £379 but at £129 for the jacket and £89 for the pants these are excellent value.
Tip : You can get these items even cheaper if you shop on Amazon.de. Even with the extra shipping it's much cheaper. The combined Amazon.co.uk price (jacket, pants & shipping) is about £220 while Amazon.de comes in at £165.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good jacket,
I had never heard of this brand before and struggled to find it on the internet or in other ski shops. It looks like it is German but made in China.
However based on the specs, the fact I hadn't skied for 10 years (hence didnt want to invest a lot) and the heavily discounted price, I decided to purchase it. I just came back from one week of skiing in the Alps and found it is very good quality and very light.
It has many pockets (one on left forearm for the ski pass or mobile phone for example, two insides, two where you can put your hands and one next to the main zip on your chest). I testify that it is waterproof having worn it when it rained.
The only thing is you will need a midlayer on top of your baselayer if you wear it on very cold blizzard days at the top the mountain (like -10 degrees for example). But it does the insulation job quite well if you have the two other layers.
I also liked the "racy" type look with the white bands and the norvegian flag behind. I bought the ski pants as well which also have the same features, so the whole outfit looked like a ski racer pro combo. A tad arrogant, but nice feeling.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great ski jacket.,
Really good buy. Warm, well fitting and looks good with matching trousers. Very practical zipped compartment on lower sleeve for lift pass. I have a 38" chest, so bought medium. Great tight fit, so choose size carefully. Only slight downside is that hood is not integral/fold-away type, so need to either attach it or keep in backpack. Was caught out on one evening bar crawling in a blizzard.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice feel and quality for price,
I bought this soft shell jacket having bought the ski jacket earlier in the year (from Amazon.de as considerably cheaper). Both jackets are of a nice finish and quality for the money (£55 for the soft shell and £109 for the ski jacket) Having read the 3 reviews I did not really have much to go on although on the German website their were plenty of praising reviews so opted to buy. I have since used the ski jacket and recieved several pleasing comments about style and fit. It was also very warm in lows of -7. As for the soft shell jacket it too looks nice and is comfortable to wear, it is not as warm as the other jacket in more windy conditions, but never the less is warm enough in temperatures above freezing and appears shower proof. I bought a medium in both jackets and stand 180cm tall and weigh 75KG, it is a nice fit so those with a larger mid region will either need a larger size or have to accept a tight rather than comfy fit.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very smart jacket.,
Very comfortable and looks the business,only paid just under £60 which is a bargain for what you get. Looking forward to trying it out on the slopes in March.
