Full disclosure: here at Skimo Co, we chose the previous version of the Mezzalama jacket as our (now world-famous) shop jackets, so of course we are somewhat partial to it. Each and every member of our team has one, and we ski, run, eat, sleep, love, shower, and work in them on a nearly daily basis. Perfectly insulated (in our humble opinions) for skinning in cold, windy, or really any weather (except downright hot and sunny weather-- suns out, guns out). This updated version has several mostly cosmetic and aesthetic changes, none of which really alter our opinions on this jacket. Now with a slightly softer sleeve material, this version retains the weather resistance that we loved in the previous version. Two zippered hip pockets replace the single left-chest pocket, and, rather than a zipper garage, a flat flap on the inside top of the zipper protects your chin from cold zipper abuse. At the end of the day, the fact that we all own and regularly use this jacket is the best recommendation we can give it-- buy this jacket, you'll love it!
