Warm and comfortable
Light for free movement
I lost the zip off hood! Not good if you easily lose track of your stuff :P
I got my Helly Hansen Calexico jacket to go skiing over the winter season and not only is it snugly and comfortable but it's really thin too, so you can move very freely.
What I also really like about this jacket is that it is both breathable and waterproof, with sealed seams and so on to keep you dry and comfortable. There are the usual essentials, a powder skirt which can be hidden up inside the jacket, a lift pass pocket on your arm and a cool little pocket with headphone feeds for your mp3 player! The only downside to all this is the removable hood, I took mine off to keep in the hotel and I lost it! It would've been better if I could just tuck it away like the powder skirt. Oh well, I guess if you buy one, just take care of all the bits and pieces. I'd recommend it! Just don't leave the hood lying around like I did!!
