The weather is working against us on that one my man.

Speaking of softgoods...

Here's my personal review for you Michigan guys.

So I got a couple pants, a couple jackets. They're all Oakley, I got good deals on them. I made it a point to match jacket and pant brands so that I could take advantage of the storm skirt because I inevitable slide down the hill on my ass and I hate getting snow up my jacket (and then down my pants).

Welp, snap in powder skirts don't work so well for that purpose. I was working on trying to spray last night and washed out a few times, one of which a ton of snow went right up the ol' jacket despite being snapped up.

So while I love my jackets and pants, I think a zip up storm skirt is a better choice *if* you're trying to keep snow out of your jacket from sliding down the hill. Maybe it works just fine for powder (as it's made for..) but for what I need it for it doesn't quite do the job.
