Takes Any Abuse

Lightweight but tough. I live and ski in the Sierra Nevadas and the weather can be very wet. This jacket kept me out on the hill in even the toughest conditions. You won't appreciate how amazing this hood is until you've tried it out. Best hood ever! Sleeves extend over the top of the glove adding extra moisture protection in a great touch. Easiest pulling "pit zips" I've ever had, which matters. Bottom line, I ski every day (over 200 days this season) and this jacket still looks good, the color hasn't faded (which often happens in our intense California sunshine), and it still beads water like it did back in November. I like a more relaxed fit, so I upsized, runs true to size for a more modern fit. Highly recommended.
