      I like Burton's Covert shell jacket. I always get pretty hot, so I just wear a t shirt under the jacket. But I suppose if it's cooler, you can layer more.

      Covert is insulated, not a shell.

      OP: $100 for a new quality shell is probably not realistic. You could likely find one used if you did some digging.

      686 has the Smartys jackets which are ~260 but include the removeable liner, which looks to have been upgraded to a "puffy" of sorts which is nice. 20k/15k, their highest non-gore drying material, and so on. I've had a couple of these in the past and they really are quite versatile. I never had any issue with them aside from the liner being medium annoying to zip back in sometimes.

      Airblaster Yeti stretch is a dope shell. also around 260 retail but doesn't have the extra liner. This is more personal preference, but I really like ABs fit and finish ymmv. Not quite the same bang for your buck as the Smartys but still not a bad price for a high quality shell.


      Tons of other options out there. I probably have something I could sell you on the cheap if youre just itching to get something. Depending on your size, that is.
