nothing better than 3 layer goretex soft

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ok so let's be honest, $650 is a ton of money for a jacket no matter how nice it is. But if you're gonna drop anywhere close to that kind of cash, it better be the top of the line in every way. Peak Performance made sure they made a jacket that lived up to their name and price tag. Every last detail is top notch. Gore-tex 3 layer softshell is by far my favorite material for skiing in every condition. I ski Snowbird 50-100 days a year and literally wore this jacket with nothing but a Stoic merino base layer underneath and the temperature regulation was amazing. 35 and sunny? 5 degrees with sideways wind and heavy snow? That set up handled everything. As my friends bundled up with base layers, down jackets and other insulation, I never changed my system and wore simply a high quality 150 weight merino base layer underneath and never got cold even in the worst conditions. The lift ride up occasionally got a bit chilly when it was extremely cold, but once I started skiing it was the perfect temperature and I never over heated while my friends had to take car runs to drop layers. Powder skirt is removable and very high quality as well. Fit is perfect for me. I like my ski jackets a little baggy but not overly so. I'm 5'10 160 lbs and the medium is perfect. I ordered the large as well because I was worried the medium would be too fitted but I was drowning in the large and kept the medium instead. If you can snag this on sale or have some money to play with... don't hesitate, this is a bad ass jacket.
Does this one really have no powder skirt?...
Does this one really have no powder skirt? Their other jackets in this line do...
Yes, it has a powder skirt. The skirt also has four snaps that let you snap it into a pair of Peak Performance pants.
