You probably have to wrap it in some sort of liner, since they can get pretty hot.

It makes sense; if your core is warm your body is warm.
If it gets really cold, I might actually try that. It might have other... added benefits too.

While a 10k insulated jacket is nice you need a gore shell and an insulating layer try to stay away from down filled jackets as once they get wet they don’t hold heat. I have a arcteryx atom lt and I only use it for days in the singles or I just burn up.
I think I'm pretty comfortable on the way down, except maybe my arms/hands. I don't sweat much while snowboarding so I guess that's not a problem.
