I have an ebay auction for a Rossignol Air Vantage jacket mens size large.  Only worn a few times and from smoke free home.  Colors are red, tan and black.

The Air Vantage jacket has an inflatable air bladder in side it which you can inflate by blowing on the valve on the left chest.  It inflates down the back and on the front chest.  It creates a layer of air insulation that your body heats and keeps you very warm.  It actually works very good.  I skied in it in -20 degrees at Jay Peak in January and it made a huge difference.  
 
The Good:
- Jacket in excellent condition with no fading of colors.  No rips, tears or stains.
- Detachable hood, lots of pockets, pit zip vents, waist draw string, fleece collar
- velcro cuffs and  button powder skirt
- Gore tex material
- No leaks in Air vantage system
- Option to create more insulation by inflating jacket or leaving deflated for warmer days.
 
The Bad:
I strive to give honest condition descriptions of my items.  The ski shop I raced for had their yellow logo put on the back of the jacket via iron on.  They did it this way because they could not embroider due to the air vantage bladder inside.  I removed the logo using rubbing alcohol.  It mostly came off ok except for some of the clear glue adhesive.  So the outline of the logo is noticeable depending on light.  You may be able to get the glue residue off by some other method.  I think it looks better without the logo even with the glue residue.  I tried to take pictures to show what it actually looks like but the material defecting light makes it tough.  I'm happy to supply additional pictures if there is a better way to take the pics.  The only other thing is the zipper pulls on the side pockets broke off and I replaced them.
 
These jackets were around $499 new at the time.  This is an awesome jacket especially if you want a jacket that can be extra warm.
 
Asking $134.99 including shipping in U.S.  Best offer option available.
