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.

- Q & A
Brother loves it
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
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 .
Smoke Color Is Actually Grey
The smoke color looks black online, but in person it is actually more of a dark grey color.
Thick Shell - Great for Cold Touring
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
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
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
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!
