My go to jacket
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I use this jacket in every situation; skiing, hiking, biking, sporting events where there is incliment weather and it has not dissappointed. Waterproof through and through and the Gore Tex provides a tough material that hasn't been phased by multiple tree hits when skiing. I'm 5'7" and about 170 and the medium is great and provides room for layering. Only downside is that it doesn't have a powder skirt which would make it an even better ski shell, but since it is not technically a "ski" shell I'm not detracting from the rating.

Used this ski in multiple conditions (blower pow, crud, leftover tree stashes) and it performs great. Light, quick and nimble but still stable in all conditions. Can be a little chattery (is that a word?) on groomed run outs but that's not really what it was designed for. I'm about 5'7", 170lbs and went with the 178 as most of my time is in tight trees. On open terrain I would go longer.

Sat through a 4+ hour Steelers game in pouring rain and my under layer stayed dry. While the pant stayed dry, it didn't bead and appeared to soak in on the thighs, but as stated, my jeans remained bone dry. I've tried other products in pretty bad conditions at football games and these performed with the best(especially at the sale price).
