Chic shredding wear.
- Water-resistant fabric and taped critical seams help protect you from the wet during a light snowstorm or snowball fight
- Breathable fabric and mesh-lined underarm vents dump excess heat so you're not a sweaty mess when you walk into the lodge
- A sturdy powder skirt and Lycra cuffs keep the snow from sneaking in (in the highly unlikely event of you ever, ever falling)
- A smooth taffeta lining lets the jacket glide over your inner insulating layers
- A comfy hood easily removes for super-sunny days
- Multiple external and internal pockets stash your spare goggles, tunes, hand-warmers, pass, and other small essentials

Will this jacket keep me warm enough while snowboarding in Aspen?
You will want to wear some sort of insulating piece underneath as this is a shell only, it is not meant to be used alone as an insulating piece.

Will this quicktech 8000 fabric be good enough for the west coast snow? I ski Whistler /Blackcomb and where snow is wetter than in the rockies .
Nope, not enough... the bare minimum I would say is 10k waterproofing...
Is this Jacket insulated at all? if so,...
Is this Jacket insulated at all? if so, what temperature/weather ratings would you recommend it for?
The jacket is not insulated. It is rated at an 8K waterproofing/Breathability. I would recommend this jacket for dryer climates like the Rocky mountains, but it will suffice in the Sierra's and east coast. Avoid the Wetter areas like Washington. As far as temperature goes, it's nice to have a shell so you can add or subtract layers as needed for to adjust for the weather.
