Satisfy your Jones for huge AK lines.
Of course, you don't HAVE to tackle huge peaks and throw down hairball first-descents in the Chugach wearing your O'Neill Jones 2L Jacket. In fact, we talked to your mom and she politely requested that you not ("Honey, don't do that or I will totally disown you."). However, things happen, and if you find yourself in a position where you have no other choice but to ride 60-degree spines, the Jones is ready.
AK's an unforgiving place, but the Jones is built to withstand the rowdiest weather the mountains throw at you. Its 15K Hyperdry membrane, DWR treatment, and fully-taped seams are totally waterproof, and complemented by a soft liner that works with underarm vents to move moisture away from your body, helping you stay dry even if you're post-holing straight up a 3000-foot line. The Jones will move with you, too, because it's built with a mountaineering fit, which features articulated elbows, a slightly raised front hem, and 4-way stretch fabric to keep it in place while you're struggling up or starfishing down (not that you ever fall).
Odds are good you'll be whitewalled in at basecamp for a week or so while you wait for a storm to blow through, and although it doesn't come with an extra deck of cards or a more tolerable tent partner, the Jones does have a ergonomically-mapped Firewall insulation, a soft chinguard, and wrist gaiters that will let you venture outside to check the weather or take important, um, phone calls without freezing to death. It's also manufactured with 100% recycled polyester, and O'Neill works with the great organization Protect Our Winters to keep our snowy places snowy, so you can feel good and have something to talk about, even if you're going insane on day six of being stuck inside.
