I bought this jacket for myself in Winter 2023 with the hope to get versatility, durability, comfortable fit, and value and boy did it deliver! This jacket has been one of the highlights of the season for me gear wise. What I didn't expect to appreciate so much are all of the little details in the jacket, like the glove... Read more
Ideal for
  • This product has great value offering 2 separate jackets with the 3 in 1 design
  • This jacket has excellent details with the pockets, glove hooks, mesh lined vents, and powder skirt.
  • The fabric of this jacket is rugged and durable with a very high waterproof rating of 20k.
Not ideal for
  • The removable inner puffy layer of this jacket isn't the most breathable and is more comfortable when it's unsnapped from the outer shell
  • This jacket has a baggy fit for the size and is not a great choice for a slimmer fit.
  • This shell of this jacket is heavier than higher end shell options

I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. The removable liner is absolutely amazing, making it so easy to layer up. There are plenty of smartly placed vents, helping prevent swampy pits. This jacket is so functional it has the perfect pocket for everything, including a sling in your chest pocket so your phone doesn't smack your chest. The... Read more

This jacket is well suited for someone who is trying to get on the mountain at a more affordable price range. On warm days, you can easily remove layers and on cold days you can reassemble the jacket quickly for additional warmth. I have found that it does not breathe well when all layers are together but I have been... Read more

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!

If you don't know. Ask. I was clueless cuz the tech has changed since I stated. Frankie helped me get the exact board I wanted for the kind of terrain I was headed to. These are people who know what they are talking about. And are more than friendly. I got a collection of curated boards and all were winners. Only 1 came home.

I’ve been contemplating buying skis for over a year now and reached out to Bernard initially. A year and some later I was finally ready to bite the bullet. I messaged Bernard again hoping he would respond and give me a few more up-to-date suggestions and he responded immediately!! I was so appreciative as the thought of shopping for skis is so time consuming and such an investment!
