Review:
My kids and I set out to hit Grand Targhee on a Saturday in November.  My kids were moving slow in this morning so I loaded the car up.  We were about half way there when I realized I forgot my jacket.  We were to far to turn around and go back to the house so I decided to stop at Habitat in Driggs, ID.  They had a great selection of jackets and other outerwear but they were all more than I wanted to spend since I already had a jacket.  I needed to find something to keep me from freezing for the day.  I found a rack of Volcom gear and really liked the look of the Dayton.  It was much cheaper than a jacket and I’d be able to use it for more than just snowboarding.  I was pleasantly surprised at how warm it was with the lining, it was about 20 degrees the first day I used it, and I was never cold.  The only downside, it was not waterproof so it was a bit soggy by the end of the day.  I washed it with Nikwax Cotton Proof™ and its perfect now.  There are several color options to fit your taste: Cherry Wood, Black and Navy (this review is based on Cherry Wood).  I choose an XXL so I’d be able to layer if needed and I also like my clothing a little loose.  I would not recommend using this on a pow day as you will not have a powder skirt.  But this makes a great alternative to a bulky jacket.  Plus you’ll have that lumberjack style and we all know chicks dig lumberjacks.Volcolm Dayton
