        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's FrostFire Jacket:

        I really wanted to like this jacket. It has lots of great features as a hard shell. The kiwi green is attractive and bright for the slopes. The 50% off currently offered in the stores was extremely tempting. However, when I tried it on I was shocked by the sizing. I had to look at the tag again. I am usually a medium in most jackets, but when I put this on over a light fleece it was very small. I tried the large, which did fit at the hips but was boxy and shapeless and too big elsewhere. I just couldn't imagine being comfortable while active in this.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's FrostFire Jacket:

        I bought this jacket based on other reviews on this site. VERY HELPFUL! I was glad others warned that it fit small, so I bought a larger size than I normally would have and it fit perfectly. Went out snowshoeing for the 1st time today (bought those here too). I wasn't sure what they meant about the tricot lined chin for softness until I zipped the jacket up. Now I get it! I love that you can adjust the hood to get the good fit...didn't fall over my eyes and stayed in place. It was windy and I was expecting to feel it go through the jacket, but I didn't feel it at all. I love the green color and that it's lightweight so I can use it for other seasons. I was warm because I followed the advice on this site of how to layer clothing. I didn't feel too bundled and totally enjoyed my snowshoeing experience.

        Very happy with this jacket

        I purchased this jacket at EMS in Saratoga Springs on my way up to the Adirondacks this past weekend. I needed a new waterproof/breathable jacket for hiking and this fit the bill. I love the bright green color, and it was very comfortable and kept me warm and dry on a mountain hike in cold weather with wet mist falling, the hood worked well too. Normally I wear a Medium, but I find EMS clothing runs small on me and there was not a Medium on the rack so I tried on the Large which fits me well (I'm about a size 10). Great jacket for a great price.

              Shame on me for not reviewing last year. This jacket is a MUST HAVE in your jacket arsenal.

              The fleece grid makes this comfortable no matter what layer(s) you choose to wear. The grid helps it slide on easily and gives the jacket just the right weight to wear in early fall or late spring over a minimal layer until the day warms up.

              Truly water and wind resistant, I have never found it to feel clammy when exercising. Ventilation works extremely well.

              As far as sizing, I did NOT find this to run small, which is frequently a problem for me since I have longer than usual arms, frequently falling between a medium (through the body) and large (shoulders and arms). The medium fits me perfectly.

                      Unfortunately, I had to return this item because it ran small. It had nice features for skiing. The quality was nice.

                        I bought the bright green jacket for my 14 year old granddaughter. This had some "wow" factor. The color was a start but the lightness of the fabric and the slim fit appealed to her.

                        This is a jacket that she will have for many years. It will be a choice for her to use when running to the store or waiting for the bus or playing with her younger brother in the snow.
