This isn't a jacket for skiing. I use it for that, because it looks cool, but it's designed for and functions better as streetwear.
Orage describes it as, "Year three of the Chalet brings a streamlined collar and a sleeker design to a jacket that has quickly become an Orage classic. A classic in the making. This insulated, long fit cotton touch canvas jacket with its vintage feel is the perfect around town jacket for any winter day. The Chalet is designed for warmth and has an Eco DWR treatment for light snow and rain repellency."
I'm going to break this down.
It's got a long fit, for sure. (I have the M size) It's not thug, it's fitted, sleek, and look very fashionable. It's soft to the touch, yet made of tough fabric. The inside is silky smooth, and warm. There are no vents.
it's good in very light snow, mist, and very soft rain, but any more and it becomes wet and heavy. It has very little water repellency when skiing, or in a real snow storm. (This is in Montana btw, it snows a lot here.)
Overall, it's a very warm, chic coat for cold days, and it functions well for skiing on a clear, cold day.
