The Curated Take
I think this is a great jacket for warmer days at the resort in the spring, but I primarily use this jacket as my touring shell paired with a pair of Flylow Chemical pants. I don't really like having to wear a puffy under the shell so I typically don't wear this jacket on my resort only days opting for an insulated jacket instead (the Flylow Roswell).
Overall, it is a high quality jacket that you will definitely see someone sporting on a day at the resort if you are looking out for it. It isn't stretchy and hyper breathable like some touring gear but that is good on windy days and for keeping you warmer and makes it more versatile. It is actually pretty warm for just being a shell, but don't expect to get the same warmth as an insulated jacket.
It is a great jacket and if you wear the right layers you can pretty much use it for everything if you so choose, whether you are throwing it in your touring back for an uphill or using it as the outer layer for a resort day.
- Can be used for touring or the resort
- Good waterproofing and powder skirt to keep the snow out
- Very wind resistant
- Lack of insulation (great for touring but not the resort)
