What jacket goes with these pants?

I think the intended purpose is back country touring on blue ski days....so hard shells would not seem to be it. They don't seem to make jacket out of the same material as the pants,,,the closest thing is the Lithic, but that is mostly a hardshell.

Thinking maybe one of the Gamma MX jackets? Would carry a SL hard shell in case things got nasty.

It just seems they did not make a jacket for the same purpose in the While Line...so wondering if maybe there is a jacket still to come?

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They have fixed many annoying things over the previous Contour GPS version which I actually returned to REI because I was fed up with it.

Improvements:

1) Battery life seems to much longer.

2) no stupid two button on off system. Now you just slide the record button and it turns on. Before there was this impossible on/off button that you could not easily get to with gloves on...so the battery would just die even though you were not recording.

3) GPS now actually seems to work. I could never get a fix before at the top of Squaw...not sure how that is even possible. Now 90% of my movies have a GPS track along with current speed and altitude.

4) Video quality seems slightly better...but then again the video quality for snow sports has always been awsome.

5) Waterproof case is now included.

All in all, I am much happier....and prefer the side mounting to the go pro which I think looks stupid.
