The Volcom Superior TDS Jacket is a well made mid level jacket that provides a good bit of insulation as well as average waterproofing for those that ride in dry but colder climates.

Turn On’s: Size L Jackets that fit well around my chest, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and my wife.
Turn Off’s: Size Jackets that don’t fit well around my chest, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.
Fit:As you can see it was a little long in the sleves for me but fine in the shoulders. Foe Stephen it looked like a much better fit overall for him than me. Stephen is 6’4″ so you can see the diference 6″ makes….Insert joke. I gave this to Stephen because it fit him so well.
Construction: Really well made and a really good fit. The 4 pockets fit really well too.
Hood: Love that almost every Volcom Jacket goes with a contour instead of articulating hood and it really contours around your goggles to help block out the elements from your face.
Insulation/Warmth: Love this terrain mapping but the fleece can be a little sticky with certain 1st or 2nd layers. Still it’s got a warm feel to it that I personally liked. It feels warmer than it’s thickness and thats a good thing. It felt just as warm as the Volcom Captains Insulated Jacket even though it had less insulation.
Waterproofing: Not bad waterproofing but for a jacket almost $300 I’d like to see 15k waterproofing. Still it handled a few wet snow days pretty well.
Breathability: I didn’t feel like it breathed super well but I’d agree with the rating of 10k
Overall: The Volcom Superior TDS Jacket and I also love the jacket to pant zipper interface that all Volcom outerwear has. It really seals you up well.
