I was referring to the fact that SkiStarr90 voted for BOTH North Face and Mountain Hardware.

I didn't think you could pack the ballot box on Epic polls, so I was wondering how he was able to vote twice.

any shell that uses Gore-Airvantage System. Currently using a Rossi Air Pro and being more than happy. Never had a jacket that could adjust to temperature changes of around 20°Celsius without adding layers.
Result I sweat a lot less because sitting in a chairlift I pump it up, and before leaving I let out the air again.

I felt like it only takes like 15 seconds after I had insert some air until I could actually feel that it is getting warmer.

Colombia. They make good shells/jackets. It has always kept me warm. It is good at keeping the wind out and zips waaay up to my neck/chin. As long as you have a warm hat, gloves, and socks, if you choose Colombia as your jacket your core body temp will be warm.

My Columbia Jacket(not shell) I had was nice but had egonomics issues.
Neck was to small and Hood was tiny wouldnt fit over my helmet. Sypder stuff had the same issues and wasnt as nice as the Columbia. Now I shopped around and bought a Helly Hanson Tempest Jacket last year, this is also avaliable as shell too. This Jacket is warm for sure waterproof, ozes style, tons of thought out pocket vents and features. Plus the Hood is huge and fits easily over my helmet.

The only other jacket i wear beside this that, is the Minimlistic The North Face Apex Soft Shell, work very well for light to moderate precip, and super nice for warmer days, like mid 20s and above.

FYI SkiStarr you might want to specify if you mean "shells" like no insulation or just jackets

Patagonia

Patagonia gets my vote. They make great stuff. They also do great things with their environmental causes, etc. . . I recently read a great article by the owner/founder Yvon Chouinard. I really respect how he runs his company. Everytime they have made their products more environmentally friendly they have realized increased profits. Amazing! Their gear is expensive though, so it helps if you can get it pro-form.

Was planning on getting a jacket from Spyder (my favorite company) but got stuck wearing my little brother's Columbia jacket instead.
