L.L.Bean Mountain Guide Parka


Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: 3 Ply Gortex
Price Paid: $239

An incredible buy for the price. If you're looking for affordable Gtex, no one, no where comes close to Bean in quality, service and satifaction. Granted the design is lacking in some features for skiers (ie; no powder skirt, no flash pocket, no handwarmer pockets), but in terms of functionality this piece is a steal. On a side note, Bean uses oddball colors in their designs. Their Reds are awkward, their Green is closer to teal, but hey, do you want to look good or feel good? Pair this piece with their All-Conditions Fleece Jacket and you're golden - dry and warm, while your buddies fret over the wearing laminates on their overpriced pieces.
