Best Jacket Zip off sleeves

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Palyed golf yesterday with my old neighbor and friend and he asked me help him find a winter ski jacket that has removable sleeves that would convert the jacket to a vest. I didn't know if these type of jackets ae still available.

He's a very successful private wealth estate planner and will not be concerned with the price. His current jacket he said is 11 years old so he thinks he can justify an expnesive jacket.

Any suggestions?

Race jackets come to mind: Spyder, Karbon, etc. I'm sure he can find a very expensive Spyder jacket...

God -I hope not. Why would anyone want something like that?

If he's so rich why doesn't he just buy a vest and a decent jacket?

Jacket

Roundturns.

Don't know exactly what he wants but I have:

Karbon, Parka, 400 thinsulate lined, with zip off sleeves. I really like this parka and bought when moved to Idaho 5 years ago and mainly bought for warmth. If you want to seensearch "" PNW Ski Crawl and thats me in the Red Parka skiing with other bears. Hav e heard some bad things about this Karbon, but not from me I have found it to be very warm, functional etc. At Panorama BC last year I clobbered a tree and ripped the left should and arm off the coat. Did that in March, April I boought a new one 60 per cent off.

I have never used as a vest. If its warm enough for a vest, I wear a vest. I think that has happened about 2 times up here in 5 yrs.

A lot of the Spyder jackets feature zip-off sleeves. You can get some pretty pricey jackets from them, but the cheaper ones are just as good. I have one that I use when practicing (over a GS suit, without sleeves so I don't tear up jacket sleeves up).
