Dope Blizzard Pullover 2024 - 2023 Review by The Good Ride
Dope Blizzard Pullover Video and Written Review
Welcome to the Dope Blizzard Pullover video and written review from your average but experienced rider James Biesty.
Positives/Swipe Right:Great price. Unique Collar.
Negatives/Swipe Left: Hood is not Helmet Compatible
The Dope Blizzard Pullover isn’t helmet compatible but comes at a very reasonable price, has a good fit and a unique collar.

How It Fits And Who It Is For
James’ Jacket Specs
5’10” 185 lbs
Arm Length (pit to wrist) 19.5”
Torso Length (collarbone to pant line) 23”
Shoulder Width 19” wide
Gloves: Drop Tahoma Mit
Helmet: smith maze size medium
Goggles: Smith 4D Mag
The Dope Blizzard Pullover fit me pretty well and that isn’t always easy having medium arms, an XL chest and L torso.
For this price point the Dope Blizzard Pullover does a great job at building a jacket that should last a pretty long time.
So the Dope Blizzard Pullover does pretty well with breathability and it’s about what you would expect for this 15k/15gm waterproofing/breathability rating.When it’s stretch material like this I always discount the waterproofing a bit because when the material stretches it lets moisture in a little more easy.
I did a same day test with a Gore-Tex jacket to see how the Dope Blizzard Pullover blocks wind and allows the layers underneath to do their job. I took one run with the Blizzard and then another with a Gore-Tex Jacket. The Gore-Tex jacket definitely did a lot better but this wasn’t bad for being more than half the price.
This is a personal deal breaker for me as I wear a helmet almost every day I ride. I couldn’t get the Large Dope Blizzard Pullover hood over my Medium Smith Maze helmet.
Not bad but I wouldn’t mind a little bigger cuff.
I love the open pit zips and venting on the Dope Blizzard Pullover.
There aren’t a lot of pockets and it’s a very simple jacket.
So for me, the Dope Blizzard Pullover isn’t ideal for every day use for where I ride at Mt. Bachelor. We get a lot of wind, a lot of wet snow and occasional rain. I need a pretty serious jacket for that and I also want a helmet compatible hood. That being said, this is a great jacket for those who see more dry weather and are on a budget.
