Product Details

Style: 21205

The Obermeyer Katahdin Ski Jacket is a reliable choice tailored specifically to the needs of men. This jacket is insulated, but it's not so heavily insulated that it overheats you. You get just enough to stay warm in cold conditions, but not so much that your jacket becomes obsolete in the spring. The Katahdin Jacket is also waterproof, and it's packed with tons of features. There are pockets everywhere, a helmet-compatible hood, underarm vents, and a powder skirt for riding in deep snow.

"No, the front has a zipper and then a storm flap that simply covers the and helps protect the zipper and keep more water/wind off of you. There are no snaps on that front flap."

User Reviews

Average Customer Rating: 5/5 (4 customer reviews)
Excellent   Rated: 5/5

I ordered XL and was initially afraid it would be too big. Not so. I am 5'10" 215lbs. Fits quite well and allows room for layers if needed. I wore only mid-weight Patagonia base layer and a fleece vest beneath. Plenty warm. Didn't really need the vest, except it was nice on the slow chair with the wind. The only thing I would recommend to improve would be to add a dedicated external ring or other attachment point to hook ones ski pass. Don't like to use the one in the pocket won't let me completely close the zipper.

Best ski jacket I have ever owned   Rated: 5/5

When I opened the box I thought it was kind of light, and I was a little afraid that it would not keep me warm. Little did I know! The technology, is tremendous! I went out skiing in the evening it was 17 degrees my feet froze but my body was fine. Plenty of pockets and storage. My only concern for buyers is it seems to size larger than expected.

Excellent , warm and comfortable   Rated: 4/5

Almost perfect, the hood it is a little big and it falls in your eyes , have to pull it up constantly.

Great mid temp jacket!   Rated: 4/5

Wore with one layer underneath in -7C to 4C degree weather all week at Whistler. Worked Great, Good Freedom to move, great venting after some trekking, and fantastic pockets.

All in all a great jacket. Glad to own!
