I still haven't found my "perfect jacket." I'm always looking for something Goretex (or at least 20k/20k), technical fit without being too tight, lightweight, wrist gaiters, and a very simple design.

Last season I had a Burton AK Stagger jacket that I put over 30 days in. I was not impressed. The velcro on the wrists always got clogged with pow and never held, the arm length was a bit too short and without wrist gaiters, I always got snow down my sleeves. By the end of the season the Goretex was very worn and needs a serious recharge.

I'm super stoked on Oakley's PRS Jake Blauvelt jacket for the coming season. It looks a lot closer to the "perfect jacket" than the AK was.
