I have been using my son hand me down 686 smarty (just the shell) for skiing - fits great, wrong colour (my wife is suggesting I need something other than black) but its getting worn.
I have read about and tried on the Sidewinder from Arc'teryx - any others from their line I should consider? I would like to be able to use it in the late fall or early spring as a general wet weather (walks) as well.
Any suggestions from the Helly Hansen line?
I'm somewhat tall (6-2") but light build, long arms (shirt sleeve is 35-36") I like pockets (not to many) - but not the cargo kind and the hood needs to fit helmet etc..
