The Strafe Sickbird Suit falls into that last category, and we’ve come away both surprised and impressed by it. Check out our review.

Flylow Vixen Coat 2.1

Just a few years ago, almost all hardshell jackets were stiff, crinkly, and uncomfortable. But now many companies make waterproof hardshells that feel more like softshells. The Flylow Vixen Coat 2.1 falls into that category, and it's an excellent all-round women's ski shell.
