OR Axcess Jacket
This is the best ski jacket I've owned. After a full season both at the resorts and in the backcountry of Colorado I can safely say that this performs exactly how I want a ski jacket to be. It has enough insulation to keep you warm on those cold days but enough vents to regulate when the sun comes out. At first when trying it on it seemed huge, however, once I was out on the snow I appreciated the room for layering, and the freedom of movement. The cuffs go great over gloves or mitts, the hood fits easily over a helmet, or cinches down when you're on the ascent. Plenty of pockets and even a built in balaclava are great features that come in super handy when the weather changes. The gore-tex keeps all moisture out (I've been in full downpours and stayed bone dry). The only downsides I've found are that it's a little heavy, but for an insulated jacket it's not too bad, and that after a lot of hiking the insulation definitely holds odor. Maybe I'm just more smelly than most, but it seems to hold a lot. Also, the vent zips aren't ideal when wearing a pack. They're not bad, but a bicep to hip zip would be a lot easier. Otherwise, this is a fantastic ski jacket. Disclaimer: I am a Gore Mountaintech that product tests gear for gore-tex. However, this in no way sways my reviews.

Great coat
Outdoor research products are growing on me. This coat is burly and warm. I ski 60+ days a year in the Wasatch, mostly Snowbird and the coat has stood up well in powder, cold blowing wind and fridgid temps. I like the ventilation zip placement better than pit zips since they are easier to access and allow more air flow without having to raise your arms. The zips also allow easy access to the inner pockets if necessary. The hood fits over my helmet well and I bet it would do well to keep the head warm over a hat in a storm. It also zips off which is a big bonus. The zips are the "sealed" kind that are less apt to allow wind to penetrate the coat, so lack of a storm flap is not an issue. The one thing I wish the coat had is a wrist pocket for small items (lip stuff, goggle shammy, goodies etc). Other than that I would recommend this coat to anyone.
