While I do like all the functionality of this jacket (which I would rate as 5) I have tough time to keeping it from sliding up my back for whatever reason (would rate it as 3). Maybe sizing up would solve that issue but then the sleeves would be too long perhaps. I recommend it but perhaps try it out to make sure the fit is right for you.

Great race suit on all fronts! Bottom line, this suit features practical outside pockets for faster transitions and overall efficiency. This race suits is perfect for warmer/spring conditions but can be easily adapted for colder days by wearing underwear of various thickness. To read a full review visit Skintrack.com.

This is a great jacket. I have been using it for skinning up all winter long either with thin short sleeve base layer or various thicknesses of long sleeves.

Both times, this setup was mounted on ~80mm skis for ski mountaineering missions and long spring tours.

I have got these skis (174cm and 116-78-97) only recently and skied them for 5 days in a variety of conditions each time (with Dynafit TLT6 boots). They are definitely light on the up and feel more like a skimo race ski than a touring one. As for the downhill performance, their shape (bigger shovel and narrower tail) makes them easy to float in powder, they were cutting well through breakable crust and wind slab, and skied reasonably well on groomed hard pack although there was some chatter. I would rate th...
