Recon Stretch Ski Shell Jacket
For missions through the resort or into the backcountry, the Black Diamond Recon Stretch Ski Shell Jacket is briefed and ready for action. It's built with a BD.dry membrane that seals out snow while allowing air to flow, and has underarm vents for extra breathability when you need it. Four-way stretch construction encourages your full range of motion, while the adjustable hood and cuffs customize the fit. A removable powder skirt keeps snow from sneaking in whether you're falling on a groomer or sailing through waist-deep powder. Zippered pockets hold small items within reach while the internal mesh pockets let you stash your skins or extra layers.

I am absolutely obsessed with this jacket. I haven't gotten a chance to wear it out skiing yet, but I am so in love with it I had to post a review right away. I got a size medium, I am 5'9 with a long torso and arms, and this is a perfect fit for me. It is form fitting with still some room to layer with fleece or down jackets underneath. The length is perfect for my style, if you aren't super steezy and like your jackets long, but not too long. I am still so surprised it is a waterproof shell, it's so stretchy and comfortable. And it doesn't make that crinkle sound you get with a lot of waterproof shells when you move! I got this jacket to wear at the resort, and while I'm touring. I think it is going to be perfect for both! I recommend this to any girl looking for a nice, comfortable, weatherproof (and even warm) shell for skiing. I love the Wine color too! Pictures of me actually using it soon to come!
