At first sight the  Kästle Mountaineering Jacket is appealing  to the eye, but that's not where the appeal stops.

For starters, this jacket is a hard shell, with no insulation, fully fusion technology to avoid seams, 4 way stretch, water proof, wind proof and breathable.   If that isn't enough, it has  a hood that easily goes over a helmet, and two  powder skirt options, one of which is the traditional elastic, with loops and a snap to attach to the matching TW252 Mountaineering Pants.  The second powder skirt easily zips to the jacket and the matching TW252 Mountaineering Pants, mimicking a tech savvy one piece for the deepest of powder days.

When I received the combo in the mail, I wasn't sure that I'd wear the two pieces together, thinking that it was waaaaay too much blue, but after wearing the two pieces together on a deep powder day, and enjoying the comfort of keeping the snow from finding its way up my back, I knew that I'd found my favorite combo for just the kind of skiing that the Sierras was dishing out, plus it lets you(me) unzip the powder skirt easily when its time to answer natures call!

Being a hard shell, this is the ideal jacket to wear with a nice down sweater or fleece on the colder days, but allows you to shed that layer when the sun comes out and the mercury rises.

 

The fit tends to be long, with a european cut, but it runs pretty true to size.

 

If you check out the Kästle Mountaineering line, you'll be glad you did!
