Best Skiing jacket, 30 to -30(f), under 600 US dollars

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Looking for a ski jacket that fits the title. Preferable as thin as possible to make movement easy. I would like one with a removable internal layer, but with or without is good. I ski in Vermont, USA, and the lowest temperature ever, in my skiing, was a -70 with wind chill. Colors do not matter, but i would like to only have to have on at maw, a thermal+shirt+Coat in the 30 to -30 f  range. Thanks. Planning on skiing the day the mountain opens- Thanks. (new user- is there any way that i can help the forum?)

Arcteryx Rush would be my choice for what you are asking!

You can play with base/mid layers and the jacket will serve you well pretty much any day!

Interesting suggestion.  I actually own the Rush jacket and have used it in -50C windchill.  I only had an Arcteryx Atom LT midlayer, and at that point I will admit I was wishing for a fleece as well on the lift.  It's a killer jacket, to be sure, provided it fits your body type AND you layer well underneath.

My preferred method is to buy a shell and than layer. You should be able to get a decent shell and a puffy for underneath for about that much if you some bargain hunting.

Especially if you don't mind last year's models.  For example, the only difference with the Rush jacket between this year and last year are the colours; it's the same model.  You might find a few still on clearance.  Same thing with the Atom LT midlayer.  Those 2 pieces should fit your budget.

Non-hoody

ACK!  Non-hoody, of course.  Far more functional, no snow catching in there, no interference with helmets.

 

 

 

Besides, doncha know hoodies are for steeeeze, brah. :cool
