      • Review:

        I ski in Manitoba Canada, where our winters are cold, windy, and bitter. I came into the season wanting a quality, clean looking, warm insulated jacket.

        Orage delivered with the Flux. It's 100gm body and 80gm arm insulation was more than enough to keep me warm, even in conditions where the mercury was stretching past the -35C mark. On top of that, the insulation blocked out all of the wind that came with those miserable temperatures. The outer canvas material is very durable and does not rail stain. If you bought the jacket in a bright colour however, it is obviously easier to get dirty looking.

        From a style standpoint, the jacket is nice, simple, and clean. It looks like your basic zip-up hoody, it's just been jacket sized. The Flux has a simple 3 outer pocket layout to keep that clean look; and even with a few amount of pockets, there is more than enough room to store whatever you need for the park. Inside the jacket there is also a smaller pocket to stash your cell away safely from impact and the cold. Then it's equipped with a 3 button elastic powder skirt for the days when things get deep.

        TL;DR: Clean and simple jacket, very warm, durable, good price.
