I'm considering some new threads. Some of the Spyder Venom line looks pretty reasonable. Anyone use these duds? I don't want to look "too Aspen" in my old Spyder jacket!

Some of it is pretty cool. I still think your better with a nice Arc', soli , Patagucci or other good quality softshell. versitile, very comfortable, higher level of breathability; and can be layered. Watch SAC for some great deals that have popped up recently. Unless you ski in wet weather, you really don't need a full-on Gore-tex fabric. Gore wind-stopper is very weather resistant. Patagucci has some great fabrics and membranes. I wear a Salomon softie that has been in a few snow storms and misty weather. It's been fine. Unless you are OB and really need the H20, don't worry too much about that. Oh, go for some brown or camo pants!
Oh great. Now you tell me. I guess I shouldn't have picked up that softshell for $30 on clearance. Oh well, fits too well to give up. Plus it, will make the metrons...:
