I bought 2. The first got snagged on a tree and ripped, but any jacket would have. I purchased another one since I really like the Stealth. STP has 2 types. The cheaper doesn't have the H.O.O.D. system that allows it to expand on a helmet using a zipper. The only other differences are color and zipper placement. You should be able to purchase it for about $253+tax+shipping using their coupons if you are on their mailing list.
Goldwin... a well made high quality brand that has very little market presence in the US... It was huge among the Japanese technical ski crowd when I was living there. Descent, Goldwin, Phoenix... I kind of lump them all together.
STP's description of the Stealth w/H.O.O.D option includes the phrase "removable hood" - is that accurate?? It sure doesn't look that way from the pictures. One of my acquisition objectives for next season is a hood-less top-end shell, which are amazingly difficult to find.
