What do you guys prefer? I've always had shell jackets, but I've recently come across an insulated jacket I really like, but I'm not sure if it will be as functional as a shell with layers underneath. I tend to get pretty warm, and I ski in Tahoe, so it never gets crazy cold here. Thoughts/opinions?
I wear shells and I layer. I like to get shells in just a little bit bigger a size, so they look dope and I have plenty of room to layer. I just think it's more versatile. i find that shells are usually just higher quality, as opposed to an insulated jacket which is usually not meant to stand up to as much because the people that wear them usually don't demand as much breathability or waterproofing from them.
i ski with a puffy in pretty much all weather. it's down insulated. SUPER WARM and i hardly ever require layers and when it gets warm, just zip open the vents and maybe bring the zipper down a little bit.
that always work for me.
I ski in PA so it never gets super cold here either and it has always been fine.
it all comes down to your preference. If you like the jacket, go for it.
or i could keep on typing .
