Lot's of Kjus and other high end clothing on sale at startingate.net  e.g. Kjus Formula pants for $250.00 instead of $500.00 :cool

I forgot to come back and update this thread - bottom line this is the most physically comfortable and well constructed jacket I've ever owned. And it works in a wide variety of temperature conditions.

 

It does in fact feel like you're not wearing a jacket while you're skiing - people were not lying. It is so light weight, the stretch fabric so smooth - it feels like a second skin - but an insulated second skin that keeps you warm.

 

It breathes really well, and also blocks out Mammoth's horrific wind. It doesn't overheat when it gets warmer, but I can ski with just one layer on during cold days.

 

And little things - like pit zips with action that is smooth as butter - star to add up.

 

Would I pay $1,000 for the jacket? No. $500? Yes.

 

At $500 on sale I think it's a better value than a full price Arc'teryx shell at the same price.

 

However, these two jackets have different purposes - after owning this Kjus I'm not going back to wearing shells in-resort except perhaps on the very warmest days.

 

But this Kjus is clearly not the right solution for skinning and touring - for that I'd go back to a shell.

 

But for resort riding this is the best garment I've ever owned.
