At the crossroads of comfort and technology, you'll find the Scott Women's Vertic Tour Jacket. Designed specifically for backcountry touring, the Vertic touts two different Gore-Tex fabrics for complete versatility and protection. Starting with the Gore-Tex 3L exterior, which offers full waterproof protection and breathable performance in the face of warm and cold conditions alike, while the Gore C-Knit backer provides a cozy feel and temperature regulation thanks to its moisture-wicking and quick-drying construction.
Additionally, the fully taped seams, combined with the jacket-to-pant interface, protect you from errant snow and precipitation, making it ideal for both deep days and warm spring afternoons. The seamless shoulders are pack-friendly to prevent chafing when you're hustling and bustling up the skin track, and the articulated sleeves ensure unobstructed mobility. Chest pockets double as ventilation in the event that you need to dump excess heat, and the hood is fully adjustable as well as helmet-compatible—so you don't have to compromise on protection.

- Q & A
Careful with the fit!
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
FIT: Note that the sizes listed are for the EU size. I ordered a Medium but then the tag clearly stated EU M / US S. I'm almost always a US M in jackets so this was too small.
Because it was just a no go immediately I didn't look too carefully at it, seems like a nice jacket though. Beautiful color and good construction. Pretty standard features for ski jackets these days. Seemed a little stiff but maybe it'd break in. The placement of the chest pockets was a little weird and kinda felt like they might interfere with my backpack and/or poling movement - but the fit was just all off so maybe they'll be fine on you. Also I was surprised at how heavy it was for something "designed specifically for backcountry touring." Anyway, good deal on sale but I don't know if I'd pay full price for it.
