I'm tossing up between this and the cartel. I'm probably in the park 40% of the time and the rest of the time ill be doing anything and everything all over the mountain. I thought maybe the cartel would be a little to stiff for park? But then again maybe the p1.1 is to soft for shredding down a mountain haha? I dont know. Whats the difference between the two? By the way i'm about 6'3 190lbs if that makes a difference. Thanks
This jacket is great. Super comfortable, the insulation is nice and soft but not big and bulky, and this combined with the really nice/soft fabric on the inside mean that it feels awesome just putting it on. No need to worry about the waterproofing. I'm from australia and we had some pretty heavy rain one day, i may as well have been in a rain coat. The jacket also cuts out all of the wind, but breathes at the same time. Plenty of pockets, and the yo-yo pass holder is a nice touch. Looks sweet as well.Only downsides i would say would be what the guy below me said about the wrist gaitors, and also that it can be a bit awkward if you want to tighten the hood. Other than that, this jacket is sick.
Does this have the little glove/wrist gattor things that stop snow from getting in ur gloves? I tried the 09 one on and it did have them and they were annoying, hoping maybe this 08 one doesn't have them.
