A number of things makes this a great shell. The hood zips off which is really nice for sunny days. The collar is quite tall so it covers my face up to my lower lip when zipped up all the way. The sleeves are a perfect length and wide enough to fit over my different glove types. No unnecessary flaps on zippers that would just flap in the wind. Haven't used the second of 2 sleeve pockets but I do always use one of them for my pass. Won't buy a jacket with a sleeve pocket down by the wrist. Best place to put a pass with an RF chip. Good freedom of movement, long enough but not too long.

I've been using a pair of smith goggles now for well over 15 years, praying that the foam doesn't disintegrate. Bought other goggles that seemed to work fine with my helmet but they all wound up pressing down on my nose. That is gone now with these. Simple, clean lines; nothing super fancy but I can see well in all conditions comfortably. And, I always ski in goggles no matter what. My eyes water way to much with sunglasses. Great price too!

I have the same jacket without the hood and one of the chest pockets and it's a great jacket for a lot of cool to cold temps. Have not yet worn this hooded one as the weather is still warm enough not to need it. I'll be glad to have the hood for those times I find myself walking home in a snow storm. And we get snow storms. Familiarity selection is the closest I could select.

Fantastic Boot for my feet

I've had these boots for 2 hiking seasons in the Sierras. I now have about 500 miles in them and they still fit like a glove (better actually) and have plenty of tread left. When I first bought them I did a foolish thing. I got them on a Friday and did a 19 mile hike the next day. Amazingly I didn't have a single hot spot, blister or any kind of foot issue. I swear by them and have purchased (from Backcountry) a second pair just so I'll have them when the pair I'm using wear out. I do often use gaiters with them as they aren't close fitting around my somewhat thin ankles and let debris in. Once I get my boots laced right for a hike I hate taking them off to clean out stuff. Laces also lasted quite a while and I just replaced them in December.
