Add half a layer.

Top-of-the-line ski jackets from most ski companies boast a 3-layer construction for a thinner design that's still ruggedly waterproof. The Helly Hansen Men's Odin Skarstind Jacket boasts a 3.5-layer construction with amplified waterproofing that maintains a thin, pliable, packable design. This makes the Odin particularly valuable for backcountry touring and ski mountaineering, since it packs like a charm, doesn't weigh you down, and sheds all the snow you plan on riding through. As a minimalist piece, the Odin provides only the essentials to keep you dry in snowy weather: secure adjustments and ventilation zippers if you have to skin with the jacket on.
