    A do-it-all, ski anywhere shell.

    The Black Diamond Men's Mission Jacket keeps the snow out whether skiing in British Columbia's Coast Mountain range or Utah's Wasatch mountains. Its three-layer Gore-Tex shell delivers reliable waterproof, breathable performance when you're making laps in your favorite backcountry area or skiing the resort when avalanche danger is considerable. The Mission has a relaxed fit for easy layering and has all the features you need for a full day in the mountains. Two underarm vents dump heat quick, while a PU-coated YKK center front zipper makes for a water-tight closure to the jacket. The hood and hem feature Cohesive cord-management adjustability for quick, on-the-fly adjustments. Inside the Mission Jacket are two climbing skin compatible pockets, while chest and hand pockets allow you to stow everything from a pair of lightweight gloves for the skin up to a dawn patrol breakfast of a protein bar and handful of trail mix.

    Bullet Proof!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I was needing a new shell for a while, and finally pulled the trigger on the BD Mission and I couldn't be happier! I use it primarily for snowboarding and splitboarding but it works great as a heavy duty rain jacket in the spring and fall. Not only is this jacket super durable, but it breathes incredibly well, and the 3 layer gore tex keeps you bone dry and completely stops the wind. I will say, it fits a little snug in the shoulders. If you like a looser mobile fit, I would consider going up a size, but otherwise, 10/10 would recommend.

    Almost perfect.

    Been needing to replace a jacket and had my eye on this for some time. I have a high opinion of this jacket after using it for awhile. The material is very thick and bombproof. The fit is a little big, so I went with smaller size of the 2 that I fit into. The jacket is put together well. The hood is nice sized for covering ski helmets. Adjustment on the hood is nice. Pockets are well placed and plentiful. The pit zips are pretty standard, but a bit hard to reach. Everything is almost perfect for a freeride ski jacket. My only complaints are the colors and the powder skirt. I didn't really like any of the colors, but went with the adriatic. It is kind of a blueish gray. The powder skirt is weird and I may cut it out, since I really never use one anyway. It is lower in the back and I guess is supposed to go under your rear.
    Overall, a well designed and made high quality jacket that should last a long time.

    Great Jacket but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    I retuned it because it does not fit me. I checked that it fits true to size and it does. I bought the XL and would say that this is indeed an XL jacket. It is appropriately long, fits great around the neck / chin area when zipped up with my giant helmet on and is roomy for layering. But... The jacket is too tight in the arms, upper back and shoulders. I'm a larger guy up top but with a 35 inch waist it is hard to buy any clothing that fits properly. Too bad because otherwise the jacket is great. If you are not oddly proportioned like me, but on the large side, XL will work. If you are like me and "lift things up and put them down" (Google it), XL won't work. Too bad. Cool brand, good quality. I wish BD made XXL.

    First Impressions - Absolutely Love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I have been skiing in a 686 jacket for years and have been hesitant / unable to find a jacket as good as it. I prefer a thinker shell, without the typical crunchy feel of a goretex jacket. Well, i found it. The jacket is heavier than a typical shell (perfect for skiing) but has plenty of vents for even a spring skiing day. It still has the triple layer goretex, keeping all the elements out and you comfortable on the slopes.

    Amazing GTX Shell for all your needs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    Inbounds vs. out-of-bounds? This shell doesn't discriminate. It is super comfortable, longer cut, longer sleeves, great pockets, media pocket, Gore-Tex Pro. It is a little heavier than other shells, but I actually like that feature because I usually skip the mid-layer. It has great 2-way pit zips when you need to dump some heat and I was able to actually stuff the whole jacket into the hood to stow it away in my pack on the skin up. Durability is on point and I love that it doesn't have that crinkly sound that you can find in some Gore-Tex Pro Shells.

    Awesome Ski Coat

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    You can't go wrong with Black Diamond. They always produce the best quality products. The coat looks and fits great.

    Favorite Shell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 154lbs

    This shell is a great balance of durability, breathability, and functionality. The fabric is sort of thick and the fit is voluminous-- IMO probably better for resort skiing than touring, but it breaths well and could be schlepped up a hill on colder days. I prefer the face fabric to crinkly, super thin shells. Has lots of handy pockets and a more freeride fit than most BD jackets. Keeps me super dry and the fabric doesn't saturate at all after a few seasons of use. Only complaint is that I'm short and the jacket/sleeves are pretty long.

    Burly and Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    This jacket will last you for years and years of use. If you want the lightest jacket this isn't for you. But if you want something you can thrash season after season this is it. I don't tour in Gore-Tex, but this is my go to resort jacket.
    I generally don't ski with a pack in the resort so having plenty of pockets to store extra gloves and snacks and a big hood to pull over your helmet when the wind gets real gnarly is essentially. The roomy cut allows for me to put on as many layers as needed, but in never feels too big. The long hem is great for snowy and windy chair rides. This jacket won't ride up letting get in.

    Great Gore-Tex Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I am not your average "vacation" skier. I am an outdoor professional and use my gear to its limits. The mission shell has not let me down yet. I don't plan on it ever failing me.

    This jacket is uninsulated as I'd always recommend for a gore-tex piece. This gives it that extra versatility. Summer rainstorms I'd be out all day on the mountain and never be wet coming in at the end of the day. Same goes for the winter if the weather is too extreme, time to whip out the mission shell. This shell will protect from wind, rain, sleet, snow, or anything else nature throws at you, just as you'd expect from Gore-tex.

    The fit is a bit relaxed which is great for layering. It is a bit longer than an average medium which is nice, being very tall.

    As far as features go this jacket has quite a few of the bells and whistles. The hem adjustments are amazing. Obviously, there is a powder skirt. The pockets are massive and plentiful. Four pockets included on the front, one has a hole for headphones on the inside. Two interior dump pockets great for goggles, hats, gloves, etc. Hood is helmet compatible and has a single tab to adjust the hood (works better than it might sound).

    Long story short, Black Diamond isn't known for crappy equipment. Everything they make is remarkably made and this jacket is no exception. This jacket will protect you from the elements and do it comfortably and with style. Compliments galore wearing this jacket for all of you who thrive off that.

    However, those of you new to Gore-tex. DO NOT WASH WITH DETERGENT! Research your jackets care instructions. Use Nik-Wax Tech Wash! AGAIN USE TECH WASH! Detergent will destroy the DWR finish and make it almost useless. If you do you can fix it by retreating with Nikwax spray. (It's not as good as the factory applied DWR.)

    Brother loves it

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I got this as a present for my brother. He had a Stoic bombshell shell for years and got him this to replace it. It is quite thick and has been super durable for him. He wears it most days with just a baselayer underneath as he runs hot and it does a great job blocking snow and wind. The fit is pretty true to size and regular .

    Thick Shell - Great for Cold Touring

    Got this jacket for my boyfriend and it's a bomber, thick, breathable shell material. Run's slightly large but that ended up being perfect for layering underneath.

    Go To Storm Shell

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Just acquired this shell on a price match and wore it twice on storm days. Fits true to size fits more like a free ride style, hood adjustment with one handed with glove on, warm dry and light. All in all two thumbs up!
