Mission Ski Shell is rated out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luke from Bomb shelter for when it's nuking out I have about 10 days in this jacket over a range of conditions: cold, wet, deep, everything but blue-bird. It has a "freeride"-like fit, meaning that it's roomier than most of BD's mountaineering-oriented jackets. Typically I size up with BD shells, but with the Mission I went true to size and it leaves ample room for layering underneath. As an example I can easily wear a base layer, fleece, and puffy under it without restricting movement. The hood fits comfortably over helmet and goggles and the collar comes up to just under my nose when fully zipped. Nice for staying warm on the lift. The material feels very durable, as does the stitching, seem taping, and zippers. I shouldn't need another resort jacket for many years. My advice: get this jacket before everyone else does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cameron from This is the shell you are looking for This shell is amazing. I've used the Mission Ski Shell skinning laps and slaying groomers and regardless of the activity; It has exceeded all of my expectations. The fit and finish of the jacket is stellar and the quality is far above what I expected. Some say the fit is large, I'm 5'11 and 160Lb (73kg) and I love the fit, I would not change a thing about it. Money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert from Awesome Shell - THE only shell you'll need for years I have had a good number of supposedly all weather shells over the years. The Mission Ski shell is by very far the best I have ever used! It does exactly what it claims to do . . . keeps the elements out! It is very waterproof, while still being well enough vented to not get you wet from the Inside. It layers very well and keeps out a blustery day. My new 'go to' shell! Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CHG21 from Best hardshell I bought this jacket a ear ago and I can say with 100% confidence that this product will not let you down. Layers easily or stands alone with only base layer. I have owned quite a few hard shells over the years, this is hands down the best on the market. Will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew from Awesome Shell I love all the features in the Mission Shell. Pockets, venting, powder skirt are all must have features in any good ski shell. I am a firm believer in GoreTex to keep the weather out and keep dry. The jacket is well built and moves well when skiing and hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by POND from SOLID! A ski jacket with all the features built to last. heavy duty zippers, skin pockets,pit zips and the best Gore-tex. FYI the sleeves very long to chest size so us barrel chested types have to size up and use the very secure velcro wrist to hold sleeves up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sgb14 from Best Shell I've Ever Owned! Like others have mentioned this shell is bombproof, while maintaining incredible versatility. Equally at home in a blizzard or a spring ski day. I even waded with this shell in freezing conditions fishing in Utah. No brainer, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigfoot from Best ski hard shell hands down! Pair this up with merino wool thermals and a down sweater and nothing can touch you. All the zippers are well thought out as well. I am 6'-2 and 195 lbs. I ordered a Large and fits great. Fit is a bit more relaxed - Pure awesome.
