Did some research on ski shells before purchasing, slightly partial to Fjallraven but as expected this does not disappoint. My first piece of technical clothing from them and so glad I got it. I wear a large in pretty much everything but glad I went with the XL size for room to layer. Iâve layered in the Minnesota winter with a warm base layer and vest and this baby does the rest. Skiing gets a little cold doing laps in the Midwest yet this was great on the chairlifts. Awesome hood, huge pockets and vents for dumping heat. Very excited to take out west to see how it breathes. In comparison, Iâve tried on a NorrÃ¸na Lofoten Pro GoreTex ($800) and that thing was so loud, my wife could hear me coming from across the store. I agree with a previous review, this jacket has a softer/quieter fabric compared to most other 3-layer shells. Also, big fan of the companyâs consciousness to the environment and sustainability with this jacket. Solid purchase, wouldnât hesitate to buy again.
