Big Agnes has successfully married function and fashion. The Shovelhead Hooded Jacket is the warmest jacket I have ever put on and I look amazing in it.
I feel a little like Trinity from the Matrix when I wear it (I am certain that if she was a skier, this is the jacket she would wear). The shiny black its awesome. The 700 fill power Downtek™ water resistant down makes it easy for me to wear this jacket in the snow. I don't have to worry about being cold AT ALL.
Down is great, until it gets wet. Downtek™ has changed all of that. Most down treatments are sprayed on the clusters and, when wet, cause it all to clump up. Downtek's™ technology allows those tiny clusters to retain their shape, thus, still keeping you warm.
Love love LOVE this jacket!
