Is tis ideal for snowboarding in? Also, sizing guide..what is the sizes for small and medium?
Not sure about snowboarding, but it is a great price. When I bought it for my son, I could not believe it was the same jacket that was in the local stores for MUCH higher prices! He absolutely loves his! Good Luck!'
This jacket would be perfect for snowboarding. It's kept me warm while skiing and winter biking (in windy conditions well below freezing). Totally wind-proof, so even though it is thin and not even that fleecy on the inside, it creates a shell of warm air around you and keeps you toasty. The mens small is not very small (I'm slim and this is kind of baggy on me, but good when I have a couple layers on underneath), it leans more towards an average men's "medium" than an "X-small". Check North Face website for sizing.
I would not say ideal for boarding because it is not long or warm enough. I use this jacket for walking around in the cold and usually need a hoodie underneath it to keep me warm. Sizes run a bit small. Someone who typically wears a medium should probably buy a large.
