Tested this jacket in a ski trip in Loveland Ski Resort, Colorado, where the temperature at base was 32F, and temperature at mountain top was in the low 20s. It was also snowing (2" accumulation during skiing).
Excellent jacket. Comfortable, warm and water proof. Tripped twice and went sliding down but no snow/ice entered my body because of the great design.
Wished it was a little lighter but at STP price of approximately $145 including S&H + taxes, I can't find any other jacket that offers protection, comfort and technical features at this price range. Sufficient pockets to store your glove, phone, goggles/glasses with a detachable hood (kept me very warm especially when taking the lift up to the hill)
