I tried on some of the last year models, i think they were stagger and turbine, not sure if there was a hover too. It was pretty weird. The same model, two different sizes and the material just felt a lot different, one was pretty soft the other one pretty stiff. The turbine had some lining, but it was missing the hanger and i couldn't find out what type was it (down or synthetic), but i'm under the impression that its definitely an overkill.
I'm sorry i didn't see your post. I do wear active underwear, i've got two base layers that i use, one has a slightly loose fit, is sort of thick and says its 100% polyester, and the other one is a really tight thing made out of "coolmax", which i prefer. The coolmax one never feels wet, but whenever im on the lift, i get cold. Somewhere, somehow, i think the wind is always getting through.
I've no idea how to find out more about these tech shells and stuff without trying out different combos. Maybe my fleece is bad, maybe it's my jacket, maybe i wear too much maybe i wear too little... so, i'm hoping that i'll be able to get some feedback from a kind soul that has experience with these things.
How would the continuum, hover, iDiom 3L and maestro compare, out of burton jackets. No Himalayas, no alaska, but some really cold and windy resorts.
