I am considering buying the on deck. I was just wondering how insulated it is. does it fell like a heavily insulated puffy jacket. Also how does the water proofing hold up. It would be my main jacket. I live in the pnw. Ski often but rarely "soak" my jackets. +k for all help. Thanks
best part about going back to school is you get closer to going skiing
PNW, definitely get an anomie. 10k does soak through after a while in PNW snow. I have an armada 10k insulated jacket, the insulation got a little wet by the end of the day in Tahoe, we had 4 feet of snow in two days. Just a thought.
What the other guys said but if your worried about the actual insulation, I wear an Orage Flux which is rated 100mg body and 80mg arms. The Flux is seriously super warm and that's what I want because I usually ski in -15C and colder. The On deck would be my choice for warmer skiing conditions, like the ones you probably ski in. The on deck is dope looking to, but seriously the anomie is wayyy cooler and way more suitable for the PNW. I'd shell out the extra and go for it.

I have the on deck as my everyday jacket and I live in Utah. DEFINITLY heavier than the fatigue, which I tried on at the saga hq. the anomie has more waterproofing, is not insulated, and is 90$ more. If you have the money, go for the anomie. I love my on deck. The insulation keeps me warm and it is actually pretty waterproof. First day I used it was a powder day and it was 10 degrees outside. With a thermal and a flannel underneath, I was warm enough and I didn't get cold. Feels like you are wearing a heavy jacket, not a down jacket. Hope that helped.
