A brand I didn't see in the ski jackets review section.. Or just a reccomendation?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was just wondering what you all thought of the stormtech brand? specifically the triton h2xtreme shell.. I like the way it looks and the cost (just looking for a $50-150 range) shell.  Honestly there are just way too many options out there, I've been watching a few of those 30 minute deal websites hoping something would pop up, but they are all either bland black jackets or occasionally just ugly.

I'm looking for anything in that price range that has good reviews (i'm going to be skiing on mardi gras break every year for the foreseeable future, usually colorado) with lighter colors, I like the orange in the specific jacket I mentioned above, but I also like ones that are majority white with some color's mixed in to highlight it (apparently hard to find white jackets.) basically similar coloring to one of the following.

Thanks in advance, first post here.. hope I didn't break any taboos with my noobness.

You could probably get something of similar quality at Walmart. You won't see somthing like this come up on sites like Steep and Cheap because it is not really a brand they would stock, because no one would buy it.

White jackets are not terribly common for good reason.  I had a mostly white Spyder jacket, worst choice I ever made in ski clothes.

check outlet sections of Backcountry, Altrec, and REI for companies with good brands and good return policies and warrantees. you likely won't find it for 50. but may well stay in your range for something that won't let you down in a pinch
