I have found that I need a shell for Utah's warmer weather ski days that I can layer underneath for a colder day here and there. I purchased this shell jacket because I liked the simple/minimalist look (still do!), but have found that it is a bit too long for my liking, and it limits hip mobility and the ability... Read more
Ideal for
  • Warmer weather
  • Not bulky
  • Taller people
Not ideal for
  • Minimal pockets
  • Large front pocket not very practical
  • Long fit limits some motion (5' 7" person)

I received this jacket as a gift last year when I outgrew my old one. I was drawn to it because it has a high thermal rating but is relatively thin. I enjoy that because it helps to give more options for layering on warmer days. I could wear a t-shirt and jacket and be warm and cozy... Read more
Ideal for
  • Waterproofing
  • Great for Layering
  • Lots of nice features
Not ideal for
  • One chest vent, no arm vents

Amazing Jacket

Posted on Dec 21, 2023
This is my 2nd year boarding and wanted to get my own gear. This jacket is perfect. I am running on the hot side and i need only my base layer and the jacket to be configurable and warm. The breathing material is keeping me dry and warm.

Great recommendations, super fast response

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
