L.L.Bean Mountain Guide Parka


Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Fabric: Gore-Tex
Fill: PrimaLoft
Price Paid: $230

A very nice, well made and warm jacket for all you yuppies who will do nothing but ski in it. There is a major flaw in the hood design, as the little thingies that are supposed to tighten the hood don't work at all, and as a result my hood blew off, sending my ski goggles tumbling down Tuckerman's Ravine. I wrote to Bean with the complaint and am awaiting a response.
