For the 90% of the time you don't need a hood

Super sturdy jacket, huge vents, two big pockets and little else. When skiing trees that are so tight you're snapping branches left and right, this is the jacket you want to be wearing. I wouldn't be surprised if the fabric could stop bullets and there's almost nothing dangling that could get snagged. No hood. No 5-pockets with big zipper pulls. Nothing. I completely zip up the collar when things get really tight in order to protect my neck since the outer fabric is like kevlar. On the inside, the jacket has a soft fleece-like feel and there's an extra bit of soft fleece near the chin to eliminate chaffing. After three seasons of heavy use, the jacket finally wore out. Marmot replaced it with a brand new one. I'm 5'9" (160-170lbs) and a large fits great with or without a fleece layer or impact gear. Oh, and yes, that's a monoski but I don't speak French and my 80's hot tub time machine is broken. I do however ski with 210mm under foot and can turn on a dime.
