Hardcore weather calls for hardcore protection, and the Mirage Jacket from Westcomb will keep you dry and protected in the gnarliest winter weather. Wear it by itself on wet or warm days, and layer it over an insulating mid-layer when the temperature drops.

  • Fully taped seams and eVent fabric keep water out while dry even in the burliest storms and the breathable fabric makes sure you stay dry if you work up a sweat
  • Doubling the industry standard, 20 stitches per square inch gives extra seam-strength and eliminates the need for a top-stitch so the seams are stronger and lighter
  • Underarm zips vent excess heat when you’re working hard in the backcountry
  • Off-set S-Zipper won’t overlap with the zipper pull of your mid-layer so it’s easier to layer and there is less draft
  • The 3-Point, helmet-compatible hood can be adjusted with one hand so you keep one hand free for holding on to your ice axe, or onto your beer

details

no need to say its quality, water proof,and breathability.
Some notes here:
1. Details: the inner pocket is also eVent which make it weather proof even the pocket is open.
2. Upper-end of flap is stiff, so it will not stuck by zipper.But the stiffness will not make it uncomfortable duo to the bounded velour.
3. The powder skirt use waterproof fabric rather than the meshed on, which is good when you ski in deep powder.
3. The mirage of 2010 fall version is better than vapor fx 2009 fall version in terms of fabric. Mirage has overall 560 NST (already tough enough!), while vapor fx seems have two different eVent fabrics and the under arm fabric seems thin and failed after ~5 times use (could be just lemon, and BC fully refund me).
4. Also 100 cheaper than Vapor FX.But has equal quality as Vapor fx.

Best shell ever, room for improvement tho

Bottom line, this is the best made, most water repellent and breathable hard shell I've ever owned. No going back to goretex after this. Love the aysmmetrical zipper, smart technical hood and lack of crackling noise of outer membrane.

My quibbles are few, but I feel strongly enough about them to bring them up here.

-Tapered cuffs are great in warm weather, lousy if you like to wear even moderately heavy undergloves in cold weather.

-stretch mesh inner pocket is too small for my smartphone (droid x). Have to stick it in at an odd angle, putting stress on headphone jack, which doesn't line up with the hole they cut out at the top of it. It's a nice idea poorly executed.

As others have noted, the hood rests at an odd angle when it's not on your head, seems to turn inside out on its own.

Overall it's a great jacket and I'm happy with my purchase. Highly recommend.

Does this thing have wrist gaiters?

Nope, just the elasticized Velcro closures that do a great job of keeping out snow and rain. This is a fantastic piece of gear! Don't even hesitate for a minute to pull the trigger on this one.

Pull the trigger on this one.

I have an older version of this jacket, sans pit-zips and with pockets placed lower on the jacket. I've been wearing it for...at least three years and it is still my go to jacket for when performance matters. eVent is a vastly superior fabric (I've tried them all) and breaths very well. The only thing that would make this jacket better, in my opinion, would be a powder skirt. It's an expensive shell, but it will last a very long time.

Just noticed they added the powder skirt to newer versions. Buy this jacket!

I still have this from the Original design

I still use this shell, as it has tested 4+ years of abuse. EVENT is the way to go. POO-POO on GoreTex. Mr. Cote, YOU DA MAN!

amazing

westcomb left left nothing to chance with this bombproof baby(and they never do). with five hours spend building it on the factory floor how could they. eVent is a must for me in and hard shell very breathable and water proof. the articualed elbows are great for skiing and any lind of moving really. the pockets are just high enough so they are not blocked by your hip belt but not to high. the hood is easy to manage and does not get in they way. i would say this is the ideal ski hard shell ever made. BUY THIS SHELL

This may be a silly question, but I'm just...

This may be a silly question, but I'm just curious if someone can explain why sometimes materials such as eVent and Goretex are sometimes rated as 25-30k Waterproof rather than guaranteed as usual?

Best Answer Responded on

Long story, short; It's a testing standard and "waterproof" isn't really an absolute value until you get up into impervious solids. Breathable fabrics have to be able to pass some amount of water vapor.

Here's a chart on what the various ratings translate into- And BTW- The Mirage is an awesome piece. 30k is almost as good as never getting out of your car when it's raining or maybe living in a bubble. Hope that helped.

* 0mm: obviously not waterproof in any way. Sieves, screen doors, basketball nets.
* 0mm-1000mm: rain resistant, but not rainproof. Most stretch-woven softshells fall here.
* 1000mm-5000mm: rainproof but not waterproof under pressure (sitting on or leaning against wet surfaces). Engineered (laminated) softshells, inexpensive rain shells, low-end ski and snowboard wear.
* 5000mm-15,000mm: totally rainproof and generally waterproof unless under serious pressure (extended sitting, submersion, heavy people sitting). Most proprietary coatings (generally, liquid polyurethane coatings that become porous when applied to fabrics and cured) fall in this range.
* 15,000mm-30,000mm: totally waterproof, even under serious pressure. High-end proprietary PU laminates, PTFE membranes like eVent and GORE-TEX® fabrics. Can withstand shallow-depth submersion without leaking (fishing waders, drysuits for sailing).
* 35,000mm and up: Solid vessels and non-porous materials. Will deform or fail catastrophically before leaking. Nalgene bottles, rubber galoshes, aircraft carriers.

Thanks Phil, that was very enlightening! I feel much more knowledgeable about WP ratings now :)
