I've been using it for most of the winter in Whistler and it rocks. Only hiking have been some relatively short boot packs up and over somewhere and that worked well.
I'm 5'10, about 160 lbs (72 kg) and what I would say is a slim build. I find the jacket fits larger than some other medium labelled ski jackets and I like it this way. Allows easy layering and great freedom of movement. My other jacket is a Patagonia Powslayer and the Capow does feel a lot lighter and more comfortable.
It's black, actually black. Not yellow or green. Colour does match the description.
Only complaint is me. I somehow keep losing my hat that I stuff in the inside pockets. This is a mystery. I suspect that there is a black hole there. Also as our passes have no hole punches I miss the left side arm pocket that many other jackets have now.
