The Clout is a really nice shell jacket. The description includes the term "insulated" but DC calls the tafta lining insulation. Therefore you might as well expect it to function as a shell. Although this jacket was adequate for me skiing in the mid 30's with only a t-shirt under it. This jacket blocks wind well. The pit zips provide good ventilation when unzipped. A pleasant surprise that is not described is that the material slightly flexes which make for a very comfortable jacket. The power skirt really stays in place. There are mostly adequate pockets. My only complaints are that there is no internal zipped pocket for your wallet or and no d-ring or other attachment point for your lift ticket.
