I am looking at buying the Mako for my husband. He is a huge Heli skiier! He is headed to CMH this December He is a layer ski dresser... but I want this coat to be warm. We live in Colorado and ski alot at Vail and Aspen... There can be some really, really chilly days! Also tell me about the hoods on these jackets... can you stowe them in the collar or do the snap off?
