I have the accelerate one one green. This jacket Gigi Rüf “T.D.S” Jacket | Volcom | Snow 2011/12 is literally the best jacket around....for shell. Sorry to be so arrogant, but it really is. Sooooooo many features and innovations on that jacket.
i really like the volcom stuff but if you don't get the goretex it gets super heavy when it's wet, feels like waterlogged down stuffing.. other than in wet snow i'd say you can't go wrong with volcom. my north face is goretex, my volcom is not; but i still like the volcom a lot, very comfy and has awesome features..
