I was looking for a rainproof, insulated parka-length coat I would not have to layer under and that I could wear in town. This garment covers every one of those bases and then some! When it is 15° cold and windy this thing protects you. On ski trip walks to dinner, from the parking lot to the office, the length and warmth allow you to avoid wearing multiple coats. It looks like an overcoat, not like you are preparing to summit Everest. I had to look it up to see what insulation it has (down) because I’ve never seen one feather leak out of it! One caution- I am often between medium and large shirt sizes; on me the medium fits great over a light fleece but anything thicker would be too tight. Get this for winter protection if you don’t want to wear three coats or look like you are on an expedition!

I gave TNF Apex Flex GTX a 4/5 because it is well made but missed the mark for me on a couple fronts. I was hoping this would be a good all-around spring ski jacket for me. Being wind/waterproof I think it would work well for this, except there isn’t room for even a light fleece under it. As a day-to-day jacket it’s a bit stiff and heavy, as others have said. Also per other reviewers, the arms are several inches too long. If you are a six-foot tall very slender person then this would be a very versatile jacket.

These googles look cool and fit great- without glasses. Luckily for me my vision is good enough that I can ski without glasses and I was dubious they would fit over glasses anyway. However, if you were buying these specifically to fit over glasses there is a very high chance you would be sending them back unless you have a small head and tiny framed glasses. I gave them the low rating because of this.

As for the goggles themselves they seem well-made and have a thick silicon backing on the strap to keep them from sliding around. I’m keeping mine since I can ski without my glasses.
