Recon Stretch Ski Shell - Men's is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ski Jacket! I love my new Ski shell, I have had no issue layering and has performed well. The one bug-a-boo I have found and totally overlooked was zipper pulls. They are very thin and hard to grab

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shell! Bought this jacket for splitboarding. It fits easily in my pack, just remember it’s just a shell you need something warm underneath. The bit of stretchiness is great when wearing a pack snowboarding, it allows a little extra movement. The fit is slightly longer than other BD jackets I have tried, this is a plus if ever you fall in deep snow. The only thing I thought could be improved was the main zipper, maybe just my preference but I like something that zips a bit easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Shell, adjusts well I bought this about a month ago, winter just getting going here in western PA. Works well to adjust hood (accomodate ski helmet nicely), sleeves. I've had it out in some wet weather and stayed dry and comfortable. Plan to use this as my ski shell when not patrolling--looks like it'll fit the bill perfectly. Appreciate the length Fits a tad on the large size -- I'm 5'9", 160 and the medium has lots of room; lots of room to layer for cold ski trips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice ski shell Great shell for skiing at a nice price and a great looking jacket to wear around town too! Aesthetically, the jacket is pleasing with its minimalist style that BD does such a good job on. Personally, I feel this jacket runs a bit large, I'm 190, 6ft, and always wear a large and sometimes even an extra large. Ended up getting a medium because it fits a little more tailored, and i still have plenty of room to layer under. The large fits and doesn't look weird, and if I preferred the baggy look I would have gone with a large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite ski jacket I used this jacket all last season and was really impressed how well it performed. I always thought you needed goretex to survive in Whistler, but BD Dry just proved that wrong. This jacket is great for resort and backcountry day trips and has a nice long cut that means it doesn't ride up under your pack waist belt or harness. It doesn't pack down super small so if space in your pack is limited the Helios Shell is also a great choice.
