If you're an aggressive skier, nothing keeps you prepared like the Spyder Monterosa Insulated Ski Jacket. The entire jacket actually has a Bemis® anti-abrasion overlay on top of the fabric. It's clear, so you can't see it, but it will prevent scrapes from tearing up the fabric. Spyder used PrimaLoft insulation in the Monterosa Jacket, which is so lightweight you almost can't feel it. You'll know it's there though, because PrimaLoft is very warm. Spyder's OSMO fabric is very waterproof and actually extremely breathable. This keeps you warmer and more comfortable by preventing sweat from building up inside your layers.

I recently purchased this jacket from Peter Glenn. It is remarkably thin and light -- much more so than any ski jacket I've ever purchased. The last Spyder jacket I bought, by contrast, weighed a ton and its fabric felt like sandpaper. Not this beauty. Construction quality is extremely high. The outer fabric is stretchable and has a bunch of carbon fiber looking accents. Zippers are very well made and the material in general is first rate. It is very comfortable, using soft materials for the parts of the collar that touch the face and back of the neck.
It runs a little small. I am a big guy and purchased a 2XL and the actual size is more like an XL (it fits but is not roomy). I debuted it in New York's heavy snow storm today (15 degrees and windy) and it kept me very warm. It sure is waterproof as the water beads up and rolls off the jacket. And the breathability rating is spot on -- I sat in a Starbucks for about 30 minutes with the jacket on and even though it was 55-60 degrees inside I was not sweating.
The jacket's weak point to me is the hood. It is unlined and does not really cinch closed to cover the whole lower face. If there was a sub zero day I believe I would want a different jacket.
I am taking this bad boy on the trip to Vail and I think it is just what the doctor ordered. If I were doing a mid-January trip to Killington, I think I would opt for a bulkier even warmer jacket.
