Is this jacket waterproof enough for Australia and NZ slopes?
Well 5,000 K is a pretty low waterproof rating and better suited for dryer conditions or just really dry snow. So if you are in an area with very wet and cold conditions then the waterproofing on this jacket will not last an incredibly long time. You may want to look at something with a higher rating.
I had last season's DC Fuse and got another one this season, which I wear on Ruapehu. I find I've had no problem with it, just because it's not that heavy you will need to layer it on those extremely cold days!!
