The Men's Untracked Jacket from Patagonia is a lightweight, mobile winter shell with a cozy brushed back, great for creating your own tracks. The 3-layer GORE-TEX® material is durable and breathable while being completely windproof and waterproof. The lining is soft brushed tricot for noticeable coziness, warmth retention, and the ability to slide it easily over other layers. It also sports all of the features you'd expect in a top-of-the-line ski jacket (listed below). The forearm pocket is great for a pass, a lens wipe or handful of gummy bears (or probably even some gummy worms).

This is my go to jacket for riding all winter long. Thick and burly enough to inspire confidence that it is going to hold up and yet pack-able to be as light as any jacket I would want to strap onto my pack when hitting the backcountry. It is a shell so on the coldest days at the resort plan on bringing a true insulation layer for underneath. The fit is roomy enough that it will accommodate. I really like that, not baggy but I can comfortably layer up underneath. Recently road when temps were 6* at the lift base (so well below 0* up top) and had a light insulation layer on under and was comfy. The pockets are on the minimal side, would like to see an additional inside stuff pocket, but they work. The media slot works as well and even though the powder skirt is minimal it does its job exceptionally well (esp if teamed with a patagonia pant). All in all this is a 'live in' quality jacket worthy of 100+ days on snow and a lifetime of use
