I actually have 3 hooded softshells from Sessions. I love these things and have bought one ever year for the last 3 years. I still have them all and still wear them all. I'll wear these for inbounds snowboarding when the weather is in the 40's or warmer. Just put a light or midweight long sleeve shirt underneath and you're perfect. The hood is big enough to pull over your helmet for the chair lift ride. Very water resistant, when they are new, water just beads off, after a couple runs through the washer/dryer, they tend to soak more than when they are new.
