I started looking for new stuff for next season and have really fallen for the 3CS Outerwear. I do believe style plays a large factor into my selection, but I was looking for stuff that I can take into the back country. So their high water resist / breathability played a large factor. But like yourself the little features are nice as well such as the powder skirt, pass holder, tech pockets, detachable hoods. Everyone wants something a little different I am sure and luckily there is endless amounts to choose from.
