I am looking to get a new jacket for next year, the Columbia that I have now was just not made for skiing, and that really tends to shine when I fall and snow goes all the places you dont want it to. I am currently really liking the Orage sven jacket (which I think is a jacket and not a shell).
I was talking to my brother and he told me that he was much happier with his shell than any jacket he has had. On cold days he throws on a long sleeve and rocks a sweatshirt underneath it. And on warm days just a tee and the shell. I was wondering what you guys thought about the whole jacket vs shell debate.
