Cloudveil Rayzar Jacket
I recently bought this jacket just for backcountry…
Fabric: Schoeller softshell
Price Paid: $275
I recently bought this jacket just for backcountry skiing and now it's become a staple for pretty much so everything apart from heavy rain and really windy conditions (downhill, climbing, cycling...). I had heard rumors of Cloudveil and the quality stuff they produce and being shorter and female, I'd also heard that they were great in designing women's pieces which were actually tailored. Great colors, great fit but on a technical side -- totally holds up, incredibly breathable and great little details in terms of pocket placement and the cinching of the jacket. A new favorite ;)
