Women's Neoshell ® Nuker Jacket
It would be nice to have a two way zipper, arm venting and inside pockets to keep gloves warm. It does seem to keep the elements at bay so far.
This shell blocks wind and rain/snow, and the fabric is soft and super quiet. I love that the hood covers a helmet yet is adjustable so that it’s not too bulky without a helmet on. I have a long torso, and the length of the jacket and sleeves is good for me. It fit true-to-size for me (small: 5’ 7” 125-130 lbs). You may want to size up if you’re going to have a lot of thick layers on underneath, but my Ember down jacket (small) fits pretty comfortably under it.
Got it as a present to my wife, and she loves it. Fits as expected/true to size, she wears small. Great color and cut. This thing literally is at par with big brands, like Arcteryx and TNF. Awesome local brand, will buy more from you in the future.
I was hoping for a shell that would cover my puffy and keep me warm in harsh teton winter days. This is not that shell. It might be a good back country shell but I’m really a die hard downhill powder skier 90-100 days a year. It fits well and I’m a classic xs. 5’1” and 100 lbs. quality construction without a doubt. I still have the tags on thinking I may try to sell it to a lucky bum who hikes a lot. Hard to let go of however as it is so pretty and new!
I love all my Bight gear. Everything is so well thought out and looks great on as well.
