I will kick-start the New Year with a review of my Salomon Gore – Tex red shell jacket first given to me by Lars some years ago. It has been used on many a ski trip both in Hafjell, and other slopes. I love the red colour of it, and how it is never hard to know where I am even in foggy conditions. The jacket tends for me to be a bit to thin to use when it is really cold outside seeing it has more of a shell material. However I find it excellent for those days when it is about zero degrees, and maybe even a few degrees on the plus side (I have to say that I tend to freeze pretty easily). And I can wear nothing but some wold underwear for comfort. That is when this jacket really does the best job. Other things I like about this jacket is that it comes with a hood, a few small pockets both on the inside, and outside which makes access to season tickets easy!
The colour combination of the red, and blue is just an added bonus..I tend to love small, and cool details like that.
GORE – TEX:
Garments made with GORE-TEX® fabric are durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, providing reliable weather protection and maximum comfort for a wide range of activities.These garments keep your body dry by allowing perspiration vapor to escape so you remain cool during activity and warm during cool-down.
If you are in the marked for a red shell jacket I recommend trying Salomon.
Have a nice day.
