Very pleased with the Bombshell

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have had this jacket for about 2.5 weeks now and have gone snowshoeing twice and had two days of skiing in Whistler.

The Bombshell exceeded my expectations. With a single baselayer, I was very warm and had no leaks or problem areas. Traveling up the lift to the top of Blackcomb was very windy and cold (around 15F), and I was comfortable.

My only very minor gripe is that I had my phone and camera in the outer breast pockets and my sweat condensed on both devices. I wonder if there is a way to make those pockets less moisture-prone yet still not lose any insulation performance.

I love all the features, too. The Medium fits perfectly on my 162lb 5'9" frame.
