David Connerswrote a question about Arc'teryx Mako Jacket - Men's on November 22, 2011
Too warm for Tahoe?
I've dropped a size or two and am looking at refreshing my gear to the correct size. I have a Theta AR from a few years back but want to go for a dedicated ski jacket this time around (i.e. want a powder skirt).
I am thinking about this or a Sidewinder SV at the moment and am curious as to how warm this jacket would be given I ski almost 100% in Tahoe.
With my Theta I would normally wear a lightweight capilene base, a 100 weight fleece and the shell and that seems to work for most of the season. With a Mako I would imagine I would have to dump the fleece and maybe beef up the base layer?
