Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Hood fits well over ski helmet and kept me MUCH warmer on the infamous green mountain freezer at Jay peak. Shoveling without a helmet, I was able to cinch the good down to a comfortable form around my head.

I’ve used the pit zips but never notice the difference because I wear a down jacket underneath anyway.

No chest pocket is nbd but I had to jump to register my ski pass at Jay’s card scanning turnstiles.

Fits well over my montbell alpine light jacket (hoodless).

I would have overlooked the minor inconveniences and given 5 stars if it weren’t for this incident:
While tree skiing I hit a branch and received a 5 inch tear horizontally on the sleeve. Thankfully it protected my down jacket but GTX Pro would certainly not have torn in this instance so skiers
beware wearing this jacket into the glades. I think the star reduction is justified since it’s billed as a back country ski shell but isn’t really tough enough for the woods.

TLDR Good jacket but if you ski the woods just spend the extra money for a bullet proof shell

I bought these because my compression pants weren’t doing the trick. I now wear these underneath some cheap joggers with uninsulated snowpants over the top. My knees used to get cold on frigid days but now I’m always warm. They’re tight fitting which is good but if I didn’t have such slim hips these might be a bit tight in Medium (which I have)

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: M

Sizing: 6’1 M 165 lbs - bought the L and the M and returned L without opening after trying on the M. Perfect tight fit which is what I wanted and the sleeves reach the wrists of my long, gangly arms.

I got this because I’m always cold and wanted the warmest baselayer available. My philosophy when skiing is that I’d rather be hot/sweaty after a hard run in the trees than be cold going up the lift. This baselayer keeps me very warm and is also decent at dumping heat after a hard run. I just unzip the top at the lift line and once I’m on the lift I feel comfortable again.

I also noticed that it does a great job wicking moisture, which was my only concern when buying this.

Can’t speak to the durability because I’ve only used it 4-5 times but it’s held up being machine washed and dried flat so I’m feeling like it will last a while with care.
