This is without a doubt one of the highest quality jackets i've ever bought. There is so much piecing on it, the purple and white looks soo nasty. with the 15k breath, and waterproof rating, how can you go wrong?
There are so many pockets it's awesome!60g thinsulate keeps you warm. There are some very nice spandex gaiters to put your hands through for maximum snow protection on the hand area. haha.. there's also an integrated powder skirt to latch into the pants (night be a zipper, but you get the point) It's got rubber on the inside of it like how some goggles have, so you don't have snow coming in when your shredding the gnarly pow. There's so many features the list could go on, and on!
I would definately recommend this to a friend, but I wont because nobody likes having the same jacket as someone else. :)
