Pros: Great material, tough as nails, great athletic fit
Cons: no pit zips or waterproof zippers on the pockets
Great jacket, but not perfect for skiing. I like it because it has nearly unlimited range of motion without pulling the waist up, perfect fit for me and good warmth. I don't like a ton of pockets and like a light jacket so it fits the bill for my style very well. It has just enough room underneath to layer properly even in very cold weather. VERY breathable softshell with tougher GORE-TEX on the shoulders for slinging the skis 'em. The only things I'd really like to see on this jacket to make it more ski-specific would be a removable waist gaiter and some lycra wrist gaiters. Other than that, this jacket really is awesome. I wear it every day even when I'm not skiing and have gotten a ton of compliments on it- also takes a hell of a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. This jacket is tough- and I mean TOUGH! It has taken many tree skiing trails, multiple crashes and general abuse everyday in stride. Warm, comfortable, fully taped seams and precurved joints make it a great athleticly cut jacket that I've yet to have a real gripe about. Also very water resistant. I've worn it in the rain and never gotten wet even when the outside becomes soaked. If you're looking for a climbing jacket, this is the perfect piece of equipment for you. If you're looking for a traditional ski jacket I'd try the Stingray, it has a few features that gear it more towards the ski-specific but if you like to dress light and athletic with minimal gadgetry, this may be your ticket. Also of note: the Terragon color is NOT tan as shown, it's two tone green and hunter green which I love but it's not what it looks like in all the pictures online.
