tree skier wrote a review of Arc'teryx Fission SV Jacket - Women's on December 27, 2005
This jacket is a winner for alpine skiing in extreme conditions. I was initially concerned that the zipper didn't open from both the top and bottom, and there was no obvious place to attach a lift ticket, but those were minor inconveniences. The jacket provides a lot of warmth. The cords at the waist and bottom hem enable you to customize the fit, and the hood is a real plus. I don't wear a helmet, so it looks a bit geeky, but it's a luxury on the lift or in a squall. The insulation is toasty, and the fabric lining the collar is easy on the chin. I'd recommend this for under twenty degrees, but have worn it in warmer temps as well.
