Cloudveil RPK Jacket - Men's


Pros: Windproof, waterproof, lightweight and rugged

Cons: Stiff fabric, not as much softshell as you'd expect

When looking for a ski jacket, I have a set of key criteria: ample pockets (since I’m often carrying gear for myself and my children), hood (preferably one that zips off), and pit zips for ventilation.  Not all jackets deliver this combination of features. The RPK does and it also packs a few surprises.


The RPK has plenty of pockets, both exterior and interior, including lined handwarmers, napoleon, and a mesh goggle pocket on the interior. The hood zips off and is helmet compatible. The pit zips adjust from either direction for exceptional control of cooling.  There’s also a powder skirt which doesn’t zip out.  On the upper sleeve is a cool little pocket with a built in bungy for holding your ski pass, a nice unexpected addition.   


I just returned from the Sierra's and the RPK did not disappoint, standing up to heavy winds and substantial snowfall. My only complaint is the softshell fabric isn't all that soft. It actually gets pretty darn stiff in the cold, especially around the chin guard and neck.  Other than that, great jacket.


I have more info on the jacket including photos at www.gearguide.info.
