Great Shell Great Price
By ane4147375 September 2, 2011
Got the green one off of SAC and its as good a quality as anyone needs. 5'10" 175 Large fits great.
No its not some bombproof goretex pro3L, but for snow sports, hiking, and pretty much anything shell, it should hold up fine. Much rather be in this for sweet price then spending hundreds more unnecessarily and looking like a tool.
The hood is helmet size so its pretty big, but the pulls on it can bring it down and the pull holds are really a neat design.
The shell is a few years old but the company continues to support any defects/probs lifetime which is cool. Also, the fact that it supports local sherpas is nice.
The only negatives i found was that the pit zips are more like side/chest zips and could be confused as the pockets. Also no powder skirt.
Cant wait for the fall/winter to test it out!!
