I wanted to test out the waterproofness of the jacket so I wore it to the resort when the lower mountain was raining pretty hard. My shoulders and arms got pretty wet, I wouldn’t’ call it waterproof but highly water resistant. That said when using it for its intended purpose ski/splitboard touring, I’ve stayed dry. The vent system works really well especially when you put your pack straps through the side zips. I often throw parts of the jacket over my shoulder (think Clint Eastwood poncho style) on the way up. For what its worth I run pretty hot and often tour up in a tshirt at 0 degrees or colder. I keep my avy notebook in my pants (outdoor research trailbreaker pants)

      Cheers Austin. I’m going to go all Clint Eastwood on my next tour. How’s your season going up there?

        So far so good, plenty of fun days in the BC so far. It would be nice if it would stay a few degrees cooler on storm days. We don’t have as much snow as we’d like at sea level. I think our snow conditions are better than a lot of places in the US right now so I’m not going to complain(much).
