Praise the powder gods.
The Sweet Protection Women's Salvation Jacket is your savior when heavy snow and harsh storms strike your mountain. This lightweight, minimalist shell was built for ladies who ski hard in any conditions and aren't afraid to earn their turns on occasion.
Lightweight, yet highly durable Gore-Tex three-layer fabric keeps you dry in the wettest conditions, and it's highly breathable to keep you from getting soaked with sweat when you're bombing through bump runs. Zippered underarm vents help you cool off in a hurry after you hike through the gates in search of fresh powder, and the tuck-away powder skirt keeps snow out on the way down.
The hood adjusts quickly with an easy-to-use shock cord system so it fits with or without a helmet on, and the plush brushed chin guard feels soft against your skin. A feminine cut gives it a stylish silhouette while still allowing room to layer underneath on colder days. It's finished off with plenty of pockets to stash everyday essentials.

Great jacket. Fits true to size. Venting and pockets are all awesome. Great design and a high quality product. Could have easily had a medium but I don't like my snow gear fitted !

This jacket is excellent and is so elegantly simple--a couple of pockets and totally waterproof. It's a no-frills jacket to keep you warm and dry and on the mountain all damn day. The fit is really feminine and stylish. I ordered a medium and definitely could have gone for the small but the medium has left me plenty of room for layering since this is just a shell.
If you're looking for a nice, simple shell that will keep you dry and looking good you have found it. Order it.
