The Quiksilver Forever is a 2 layer Jacket, which means there is an outer technical layer backed with a membrane. The inside of the jacket has a synthetic liner that is designed to wick moisture away.
Quiksilver Forever 2l Gore-Tex Jacket Review
The Quiksilver Forever 2L Gore-Tex Jacket has a very tall fit. I’m 5’8” and the medium sat halfway down my thigh. If you are looking for a tall fitting coat to wear in the park, this is it.
Generally speaking, 2L jackets are less superior to 3L because they have more fabric making them heavier and arguably less breathable. At the same time, 2L jackets are much more affordable and can achieve the same results as 3L.
Because of the heavyweight fabric, the Quiksilver Forever Jacket would be better suited as a resort jacket that you can layer with depending on the weather.
For inbounds riding I liked the Quiksilver Forever 2L Gore-Tex Jacket ($329), for hiking and splitboarding it was a little restrictive. Overall a nice affordable mid-level jacket from Quiksilver.
