TO ANYONE WHO HAS EVER HAD A WHITE JACKET!!!!
how difficult was it to keep it clean? is it or was it possible to keep it clean and make it last 2 or 3 seasons? Also any other feed back or opinions anyone has about jackets feel free to throw them in!
well depends wut u ski.
park it will be fine
Stevens Pass 06-07
mine wasnt too bad, just gotta be careful, or learn to not give a shit at all.
i have a siver cartel offwhite jacket, i spilled taco sauce on it and then i washed it with powder detergent and it was fine.
i cant reccomend powder detergent more. for ski gear it keeps it from losing waterproofing in the washer.

I have more than one thousand posts, my opinion matters now.
skiing in any trees just becomes a problem?
Jackets are usually alright, pants that are light colors though tend to get dirty quick, but that's just me.

well how about i ski in it and occasionally wear it around? not working in it or anything?
you will just need to be prepared to get some stains on it from rails/trees/oil/whatever. If you spot treat it (hand wash) with something gentle like nikwax it won't compensate the waterproofing much and it should get most of the stain out as long as you let it soak for a while. Just make sure you don't scrub with anything abrasive or you'll mess the material up.
it doesnt look bad unless it is extremely dirty
i hated having one, it looks sick when its clean but it was just too much of a hassle for me. always got chairlift grease on it that dripped off the riblets, pain in the ass
its up to you how much you want to worry about keeping it clean, you always have to be aware and carefull. i just got a tan jacket and its awesome not having to worry about a little dirt
light outerwear is so hard to keep clean... my light jacket got dirty, especially on like the inseam of the arms, just from wearing it around town, and I didn't even leave it on the floor or anything. I would probably never get a white jacket but that's just me.
"I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words."
its not too difficult to keep clean. oxy clean is where its at if you end up needing to get stains out. works every time on my white jacket. so clutch.
"Man, skiing is the easy part."
first day I had my white jacket it got fucked up my rail wax and mud.
shit don't concern you son
i had one all season its just dirty aroudn the cuffs
you gotta learn to not care.
+ if it's a high-end gore-tex jacket you can wash it. just follow the instructions. in fact washing / drying cleans out the micropores and makes the jacket breathable again and reactivates the DWR coating. but if it's a cheap jacket, then yes, washing it might fuzz it out a bit, but better than wearing a brown, stinky jacket.

ive got some good rust stains on my jacket

They get dirty. Real dirty if you actually ski and don't just take three laps through the park and then go home. Deal with it.
its no prob ya might get a little ketchup or somthing on it but you could do that with any jacket just get it and dont worry about it i have almost always had lighter colored pants and they have been fine
actually there's a real good product out there called nikwax.. they got a few products that'll work a hell of alot better than powder detergent.

Um, wrong. You fall on a box or a rail you get some nice grease marks. I'd say OUTSIDE the park you'd be more... "fine".
"some were liek how many sides does a rhombus was i had no idea ont he cups in 5.5 gallons and what time period we are in but besides those i think im smarter thena 5th grader"
yeah my pants always get trashed before a coat. Rust stains from rails can be frustrating but usually if you clean them its all good.
