Always on guard.
When the winds are whipping and the snow is falling at the ski resort, make sure to reach for the Salomon Men's QST Guard Jacket. This jacket combines top-shelf weather protection with toasty warmth to take the chill out of bone-chilling conditions. A waterproof, breathable AdvancedSkin Dry membrane shields you from any nasty rain, sleet, and snow you may encounter on your adventure. Additionally, the jacket is equipped with 40g of low-profile Primaloft insulation to provide you with reliable warmth on frigid days at the mountain, without saddling you with a ton of bulk.
Meanwhile, the sleeves are lined with a fabric technology that wicks moisture away from your skin, which makes the jacket ideal for aerobic activities in alpine conditions. Salomon also included an air vent system to dump excess heat quickly when you've gotten a decent workout from the bootpack up. An attached powder skirt defends you from snow on waist-deep powder days, while the adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs provides ample, customizable protection from howling winds.

Just finished our Ski season here in the PNW and overall it was warmer than normal. Typical temps ranged from 28-35 F degrees. I have about 30-days of use and I typically run hot. I would just wear a single base layer and the jacket for optimal temp. The jacket held up well and fits true to the size. The amount and size of the pockets are perfect and the location of the ski pass pocket on the left upper arm is perfect as well for Whistler Ski lift access. The prima loft insulation is just enough. The only drawback is if you sweat like I do, the insulation soaks it in and then the jacket smells. The hood works great over my helmet and googles and doesn't restrict my head movement.
The only con is we had several rain days here and after a few hours in the drizzle, the jacket was damp, however, that was also from sweat as it was very warm.
This jacket would be best suited for Ut., and Co, for the dryer and colder climates. Overall it's a great value!
