Why doesn't everyone start ragging on the Spyder Pinnacle Jacket? Seems like Arc is the brand everyone loves to hate because they make the sickest gear out there. Its not like Arc is making you buy this jacket, and its definitely not for everyone considering that it is $1,000. Even still, this is the Jacket that a resort-goer is going to have for 35 years, and for that reason I bet its cost-per-wearing is gonna be a lot less than a lot of other Jackets out there. With the relatively high price of Arc'teryx these days, why don't you all consider that you buy nice or you buy twice. I own an Arc'teryx shell that costed $500 and I expect it to last 3 times as long as a $250 counterpart. I am also certain that if for some reason my Jacket doesn't perform the way it should, Arc'teryx will send me a new shell. Most Jackets these days are purchases, an Arc'teryx Jacket is an investment.

A pretty great Glove. To be honest, I wasn't amazed by it because the leather stretches to the point that Larges which were slightly too big became way to big. Good thing about leather that stretches is it is super soft. Probably as soft a leather palm as there will be out there. Definitely make sure if your between sizes to size down. If your fingers are tightly up against the finger tips you will certainly have a glove with some great dexterity. This glove also happens to be super insulated. The thing is full of down, and it certainly does the job for keeping your digits toasty. If I had bought it now when it is $100 I probably would have given em a five.

These goggles are perfect. I have two polished white ones, one with Fire Iridium and one with Blue Iridium, and those two lenses do a good job tackling any light conditions I may run into. They are obviously not the easiest goggles to remove the lenses from, but considering the frame they have, they are pretty darn good. Goggles like the IO have easy interchangeability, however, the lens is completely exposed, while these have the frame to brace impacts on the edges. On top of the quality optics you get from these, they just look cool so get some for yourself.

Status Quo, this Arc'teryx jacket is super good. All of the tape seams and zippers are impenetrable to the elements. If you like a minimalistic jacket that will do exactly what you expect in any circumstance, go with this. It has one pocket on the inside that is good for essentials. The two breast pockets are perfectly placed for taking care of all of your business on the lift. I always throw my Sigma ARs (No doubt a large glove) in there, and keep some North Face E-touch liners in there so I always have some glove on my fingers to use my phone. The great thing about this jacket is you don't have to over thing sizing too much because it is so adjustable. The hood can be set to exact measurements, and the waist can be cinched in to fit your waist and block out any snow. The articulation of the arms makes it so the arms only feel in the "right" place when your skiing which I like. Overall, bomber Jacket, poppy colors if you like that, black if you don't. Grab yours right now at a steal for 25% off!
