Yup, I use it to dig wax out of grooves in the base and along edges.
I got mine and the zippers were already screwed up. They wouldn't close the case and I dealt with it for awhile, but sent it back yesterday.
Would this be a good layer for cold east coast resort days? I'm picturing it being too warm for chairlift laps, but good as a "sit outside in the cold and wait for slow hikers," layer.
