I bought this jacket for alpine skiing a few years back, because we had a cold winter and I wanted to acquire a warmer jacket. So I pick up this one because it was long enough to cover my lower back. It was also on sale at 70% off, probably because of the flash lime colors!

I usually wear a base layer and a polar under, and when it get really cold I can easily add up another layer. So this said you can imagine that it's made big! I usually wear medium, but this one is a enormous medium, so I could have downsize to a small (I'm 6ft and 155 pounds).

It has an inside skirt, that can be remove with a zipper. It has 6 pockets—2 hands, 2 chest, 1 right arm, and 1 inside mesh. Integrated hand warmer at the end of the sleeves and Velcro adjustable cuffs. Chin cover with a comfy fleece lining. Outside fabric is great and it's insulation: Duck Down 90/10, 700 fill power.
The are few drawbacks: first is that I cannot wear my hood over my ski helmet, and it rubs on the back of my head when I rotate. Oh, this is a heavy jacket. I saw that the new version is made of Pertex, so probably lighter. The pocket zippers are small and cannot be manage with gloves.

This longer winter jacket combines duck down insulation with a Pertex shell to keep you feeling snug inside. Even with its coziness, it's still light enough in weight to pack down any time you are traveling.


Skiing and walking around when it's very cold out.
