This is a heavyweight jacket that is great for cold weather resort laps. I would usually wear a wicking baselayer with nothing else.. Even on the coldest storm days the powder skirt, wrist gaiters and ample insulation kept me warm and going all day.

Tiny complaint is that the zipper guard next to your chin only overlaps the zipper by a half inch or so, which always seemed to curl up and expose the zipper. Minor, I just had to readjust it every time I got on the lift.

It also gets a little warm when you start hiking.

100 days at Alta and I stil love it.

I wore these pants every day, anywhere from 0 degrees and storming to 40 degrees with sunshine. They were great as far as warmth and comfort are concerned. Roomy so they don't restrict movement on the uphill or downhill.

My issue was with durability. I wore these 100 days and by the end of the season the crotch was blown out and the inside of both legs were slashed. Inside the legs getting slashed is typical for ski plants, but being a 'slackcountry' model I thought they should have been designed to withtand the sidestepping necessary to access sidecountry/slackcountry lines.

If you don't plan to ski 100 days a year I absolutely recommend these pants.
