Freeriding is your favorite verb.
The Mammut Men's Verbier Jacket is the sweet-looking workhorse in your ski wardrobe. Slip your music player's cord through the audio port, push play, and enjoy the full waterproof protection from the 3-layer Gore-Tex shell as you float waist deep powder all the way back to the lift. It's so smooth, it does all the snow-shedding and heat-retention work so all you have to do it think about how buttery your turns are.
The powder skirt, Lycra cuffs, and fully taped seams did their part, because you are dry as a bone. While you're waiting for everyone at the bottom of the run, you'll revel in the fleece lining. Open up the front accessed underarm zips on your way back to the top to cool off a bit, check your stash of goodies in the two huge spray-proof front pockets, and then point your tips and do it all over again.

Feels like I'm wearing nothin at all!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This is simplicity and style in a well-made, thoughtfully designed freeriding jacket. Fit (L) was perfect for me, at 5 11, 185 lbs. Plenty of room to maneuver without being ridiculously baggy but not too slim for layering on colder days. Jacket is light and warm and very durable. Oh and guaranteed to keep you dry. This jacket gets it done without making a big fuss over it,
but there's enough steez here to look good while you crush the lifts, side country, backcountry or apr�s trolling for betties.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
I was super excited to find this jacket in the gear cache. I ordered both a L and an XL, just to check the fit. Neither fit well. I'm 6'1" 170lbs with a 32" waist. I was swimming in the body of both sizes, yet the shoulders felt tight. The sleeves of the Large were too short, but the XL was OK. I would have kept the XL if the cut of the body wasn't so gigantic.
Too bad -- I'd hoped a European company would have been cut a little more "trim" than many American jackets (I'm looking at you, Patagonia).
If you're a bigger guy, then its great. If you're tall and slim, probably look elsewhere.
