Great backcountry ski/hike jacket.

I bought this to use as my softshell for backcountry skiing on days when it's not dumping heavy, wetter snow. Have had it out 5 days already, and it works fine. Light snow falls off it easily, and it breathes well enough to wear skinning uphill. It's NOT a full-on storm jacket, so I carry a light, hooded shell in my pack just in case. My only gripe about this jacket (like a LOT of softshells) is that there is no good waist closure like a powder skirt, etc. Deep powder tends to blow up the bottom a little unless the drawcord is pulled tightly, and then the jacket tends to ride up. Other than that, a great light-duty jacket and once again at an awesome STP discounted price. I'd have a hard time paying full retail for this jacket.
