New favorite puffy
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 127 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I have had jackets from all different brands and I actually think the Broad Peak hooded down jacket is the most comfortable one I have ever owned. It packs really nicely, which is one of my favorite parts. The cuffs and hood are hemmed with some nice elastic so when your hood is on it stays put to your head. Mammut is very true to size! I am 5'5" and weigh 127 lbs. and am a small in this jacket and have some room to spare, however not too much room. Some down jackets for women when they fit too large they have this extra material around the breasts (Patagonia down jackets have this problem) and this jacket does not have that which I really like, and it fits nicely under a shell jacket. I have used the Broad Peak hooded down jacket primarily for ski touring. I like how high the jacket goes over your chin, which is nice for colder/windy conditions. I have used this mostly on cold days touring and will always have it in my pack for the ski down if temperatures are too high to wear it on the way up. I am also always looking for a light puffy to put on my harness while climbing. This one packs up nicely with a carabineer loop. I guess my only complaint is that it doesn't have a cellphone pocket on the chest, which would be nice for climbing.

Such a rad looking goggle. Mid price range and works like the highest price range goggles. I've never had a fogging issue, and its lenses are super easy to use.

Okay I am wondering why every other goggle makes their lens changing system so hard.. That was so easy to change. Just slide the lever down, pop it of and put a new lens on . Its easier than most magnetic lenses!

The light sensitive lens is crazy good. I've never had lens issues.

Yes! Finally a touring ski I feel stable on and I don't feel like my hip sockets are going to fall out. These are sooooo light for how good they ski. They ski like a heavy all mountain ski but are as light as any good uphill travel ski.

These are good in and out of bounds, but I have decided to make these my touring skis! Really stoked on them.

I want to say this is one of the lightest powder ski's on the market. Such a fun ski. Really able to initiate a turn and feel sturdy, yet not carry around any extra weight.
