Pockets! This jacket has great pocket depth and placement. The Tech pocket inside the jacket is deep enough to allow a variety of phones to fit snuggly without creating unsightly bulges, while the goggle pocket, located on the opposite side of the jacket is roomy to hold the extra pair of goggles or sunglasses, and the exterior pockets include two deep front pockets for wallet and/or other necessities, and wrist pocket for lift pass or an extra tube of chapstick.
All of these features are packed into a jacket that has kept is promise to keep me warm when its super cold outside, and cool me down when the mercury hit 50°.
This is definitely a jacket to consider if you ski in a variety of conditions and want the extra technical edge.
