ive already got a blue first drop jaccket from last year, and ill still use that this year some for colder winter park skiing since its insulated. I was thinking that since they now are supposed to be more water proof taht i would get a pair of their new red and black pants. But i also need a jacket that actually performs well in backcountry, so i want a waterproof shell that still has a loose park like fit to it. So now im looking at getting the green and black north face gonzo shell since it has hyvent waterproofing. The other option im considering for a jacket is the blue and black spyder killer shell from a couple years ago. I still have the white and black puffy version of the killer suit taht i got new back then, and it was really nice so i thought id get the blue shell since it has a nice fit and 20k waterproofing. Im not sure about it, but i do kind of think that even though the spyder stuff was really nice, the gonzo might still be more waterproof.
