Ya gotta look like you know what your doing on the hill, otherwise you don't feel like you know what your doing. My last jacket was aright but this has the perfect combination of cool and prestige. Got it in black and its perfect for blending in without looking boring. The thumb loop gaiters are something I look for in every jacket now and I love em. Nice key clip, and very convenient outer pockets. Not as insulated as I would've liked but an extra shirt and I don't care.
