yes, the fabric is relatively thin, but that's the only flaw in this jacket. I've ridden in it pretty hard (glades, rocks, etc) for over 50 days and it hasn't ripped, yet.

The plexus "pinnacle" an excellent shell that fits in perfectly with most california mtn weather. Love the Boa in the hood, big pit zips, powder skirt and the minimalistic pockets (no flaps to ice up). 20/15K doesn't come by often in a shell. It's also a great looking jacket with a cool lettered print.

Only thing I would criticize it for is the "tailored fit". It's actually very roomy in the arms and chest (allows for plenty of layering), but the bottom hem only drops just below the belt - doesn't cover the crotch or rear end areas like a relaxed/baggy fit would.

Tried them all, but kept the the Rogue because they fit my medium face best. The optics are excellent and rival any of the top brands. The peripheral vision is also very good...and only where you really need it (the sides).

I bought the version that includes the bonus yellow/blue ion lens. Dragon's website says they're only 35-45% virtual light transmission, so I was worried they'd be too dark for overcast/shadowed or storming conditions. However, the pamphlet that came with the goggles claims these lenses are actually 60-70% VLT. I think the website is wrong because I used them in a heavy snow storm and they weren't even close to being too dark.

The Red ion lens worked great in super bright sunny conditions. I didn't find myself squinting, at all....plus, they look great and are ultra reflective.

kudos to VZ for making a great looking frameless goggle. Unfortunately, they dont quite fit my medium face. The foam is snug all the way around my face, but, in order to get my eyes on the center (horizontal) line of the lens, I have to pull them too far down on my nostrils. If you're buying online before trying, be warned these are really for a larger face. I returned them and got the dragon rogue which are truly medium fit goggles.

Great looking goggle, super lens and incredible peripheral vision...but, mine had a poor glue job on the nose area of the face foam. The box also arrived unclosed. The goggles were bulging out, the bag on the bonus lens was already opened and the protective film was half peeled back. QC needs a little work.

...however, they worked great on the mtn. The "jet" version ($159) comes with a bonus yellow/blue mirrored lens for low light that worked great in heavily snowing/cold conditions. The vision was HD and they didn't fog at all. The red ion mirror (other included lens) was perfect in bright sunny/bluebird conditions. The mirroring on the red lens is super opaque, so no one can see your eyes.

For those who complain about the "halo" effect created by the ion mirror, don't worry about it. Seems to me that halo actually increases snow definition, so if you aren't staring at your hand all day, you won't even notice the halo when actually riding.

Unlike 686 Smarty, these Plexus pants are true to size (I wear a large in most pants, including Plexus, but wear a medium in Smarty). Plexus are also tailored (tighter) fit, but not enough to restrict movement. I can still wear my padded shorts underneath the plasma.

The fabric on the plasma is somewhat thin compared to most other brands, but that also helps make them very lightweight (tailored fit removes some fabric weight as well). Upgrading my outerwear from Sessions to 686 has helped me drop several pounds from my equipment.

Plenty of tech features (waterproof, breathability, vents, powder skirt loops, etc) make them worth the price. I love they don't have big flaps on the pockets (I hate it when flaps ice up in powder and I have to chip it off to drive home).

The houndstooth is subtle...too subtle, imo. I like some kind of contrasty print or pattern on all my outerwear and these are closer to just wearing plain grey pants.

These plasma pants go well with plexus shell jackets because wearing a baggy jacket with skinny pants (and vice-versa) looks strange.
