Up until the last couple of years I've always been a big believer in the insulated ski jacket thing as I didn't really like the shells from back in the day (the last time I did the 3 in one thing was in 1997). So last year I thought I'd give this another try and picked up a not quite Goretex shell and worked out quite well, so this year I thought, hey, I'll go all in and get a proper shell.So here's a few comments after using it for skiing for about 10 days ...First of all I should mention something about the colour. The website lists it as Everglade and I expected some kind of green tinge to it, however all the pitures posted on Backcountry and Arc'teryx show the jacket to be yellow with a hint of green ... well when I got it it was more green with a hint of yellow. The pic I posted is what it really looks like ... it's still a wicked colour and I love it, but keep that in mind when you order if you have your heart set on a yellow jacket ... it's not.The jacket is fantastic, fit is incredible. I'm 5'11" 230 lbs, I love the way the jacket fits, it's narrower in the waist and has room in the shoulders so it's quite comfy yet it's not baggy, a nice combo.The colar comes up quite high which is fantastic (the largest reason I bought this jacket) so that you can burry your face in the colar when you're up on the chairlift if the wind it really howling. Also the back of the color that comes up to your face has a nice soft backing so it's comfy.This jacket feels a lot warmer then my last cheap shell (no goretex) for some reason when the wind was howling at Tremblant and it was -18C it didn't really bite as bad as it did before, I think given the nature of this shell and that its a soft goretex the shell is thicker ... or goretex is that much better ... either way it's fantastic for cold weather with the proper layers.Breathability was good, though i have not really tried it in warmer weather yet ...in conclusion ... fantastic shell, great materrials, nice pockets, great build ... just have a look at the colours first as they are slightly off the website pictures.
