Mission Ski Shell - Women's is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great All Around Workhorse Shell Bought this shell for both severe weather backcountry skiing and fishing adventures. Just came back from fishing in Alaska and the shell performed just as expected. I was warm and dry in high wind/heavy rain conditions with a light puffy underneath. Hood was snugg and stayed in place with just my baseball cap underneath. I specifically ordered this jacket because of all the pockets. The chest and arm pockets were a bit snug with my puffy underneath. The fabric is thick, yet not stiff or noisy. Fit was OK, except the bottom is a bit snug for my wide hips. Also would have liked a 2 way main front zipper. I hope to get the same performance this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Shell I love this shell. It's light weight, great in the snow or cold rain. I especially like the pocket on the sleeve and helmet compatible hood for days on the slopes. Size wise, I am short so traded my usual size S for a M because the S was a little snug on my hips(fell below the widest part of my hip which it might not on a taller person.) Overall, the M is a looser fit but still looks nice and I am really pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like skiing in a drysuit - in a good way Pulled it out of my closet yesterday in preparation for this year's ski season and remembered that I was meaning to review it. This shell is awesome in every way. It's the most waterproof jacket I've ever owned and has kept me dry in downpours, blizzards, and when I fell into a semi-frozen pond during some sketchy spring skiing. Also wind? What wind? There is no wind while wearing this shell. The pit zips are clutch because it gets toasty in here. That being said, the jacket breathes excellently. As far as the sizing goes, I thought it was perfect - roomy enough to wear over a puffy but enough adjustment points to cinch it down on warmer days. The sleeves are long which is great for tall women like myself with long arms (I'm 6' tall so many jackets are short for me, I didn't have this problem with the MIssion in size XL). All things considered, I would call this the perfect shell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Run So impressed with this coat Allows you to be an athlete if that makes any sense...doesn't slow you down or limit what you can do. It is also very tough material. The coat can take a hit from some fairly stout tree branches when skiing the trees. I have used it for Resort, Snow Cat, and Backcountry skiing...easy to layer up or down and the venting works great. Also, if you don't like wearing masks or anything like that on your face, the collar is stiff enough to act like a shield when it's really dumping/pelting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, Tight at Hips This is a great jacket, but I wish that the cut was more accommodating for women's hips. I wear a size 6 pants, and the medium jacket fits perfectly everywhere except it is tight at my hips. The large is way too big otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coat I've ever owned I ordered this shell to hold up in the rain, snow, and wind of the Pacific Northwest, and I am not disappointed. This coat keeps me dry, warm, and comfortable for long days skiing and in the elements. I've worn it almost every day since purchase, and couldn't be happier with my choice. The sizing is right on as well. I am 5'6", 150lbs, athletic/curvy and the medium fits great, with room for layering. The powder skirt does its job well, and the hood fits comfortably and well over my helmet. There is great variety in the pockets and their placement is spot on. The coat is of excellent quality. The style and color make you feel goooood. I recommend this coat for ladies who are going to spend some long days out there! If it can do well on a rainy snowy pass in Washington, I imagine it will do well in many places!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light, comfy, packable, meant for hard use I am 5.4 and weight 120lbs. I took the medium. I can wear my down jacket and other layers under without a problem. I used this while : Nordic skiing north of the 55th parallel in arctic winter condition, back country skiing in Wyoming, Colorado, and Quebec, Kite skiing on the Hudson Bay, Hiking, Running, camping and you just-can't-feel-the-wind! It is soooo nice to feel comfortable on a summit with a 60knts wind blowing. Also, it has a great breathability, I can still do cardio even if it minus 40 without condensation and freezing after 20 minutes. I can do all my favorite outdoor activities without worrying about the weather, knowing I am always ready. Style is great, the jacket goes down on the hip and the sleeves have a nice long lengtht. It doesn't restrain your moves. The hoody is also (very) soft on the chin and can be adapted so the wind doesn't get to your face. It fits my big helmet with ease. It doesn't get dirty, seems that it can't rip (many accidents happened, none of them got to the jacket!) I am impressed with the quality of the product that I like better than my previous Arcteryx 3L goretex ! And the best surprise feature: it is so quiet ! The jacket doesn't make crazy noize like other Goretex jacket I own. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All in one jacket! Bought this jacket a month ago, and so far I am really glad i did. The gore tex in this jacket is really good, and the jacket keeps me warm and dry even in the hardest weather here on the west coast of Norway. The size is also good, and i like that the arms are long enough and that the waist isnt to tight! Overall a really good jacket that delivers in any way :-)
