Should you choose to accept it.
When you decided to become a skier, you didn't realize you'd love every day on the slopes—stormy, sunny, cold, backcountry or in-bounds. The Black Diamond Mission Shell Jacket is here to ensure you keep loving the days, regardless of the conditions. Its 3-layer Gore-Tex membrane ensures that no flakes will melt through to dampen your spirits, and has the breathability to let any vapor gathering inside the jacket escape. It has two-way underarm zippers that allow you to vent heat when the sun or the hike is making things toasty, and an adjustable hem, cuff, and powder skirt combo that seal out snow regardless of how hard it may be dumping. The helmet-compatible hood adjusts from three directions with the integrated Cohaesive cordlocks, making powder days as simple as flipping it up. Touring-friendly features such as the internal skin pockets and underarm gussets that maximize range of motion ensure comfort while you're working for your turns, while the sleeve pocket keeps your pass accessible when you hit up the lift.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Got this jacket for skiing and for trail hiking in the snow. I wanted to be able to control the layers underneath and this jacket works well for that. The material is waterproof but not the super crinkly type that makes a lot of noise. It has plenty of pockets and is super lightweight. I wear a size 10 and bought a Large, the hips fit well at this size and have a tightening ring should I ever need to bring it in on the bottom. Highly recommend this jacket for spring, layered winter, and snow hiking.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
I love this jacket and it is very well made. Unfortunately I had to return because the sleeves are very long. It fit everywhere else but because I am short the sleeves were just too much.

Love the jacket...well made and think it would be warm.
I am short and the sleeves were very long. This item would be difficult to have altered.
Awesome Jacket for cold people
Keeps you super warm, has an awesome shell that keeps out the wind and snow. The zippers on the arms are awesome if you start to get to warm, instead of removing the jacket you can just unzip them. Good, solid snowboarding jacket.
