My go to jacket for boarding (Review by t.Bone)

I've had many jackets and shells over the years and I find this one to be my favorite. I recently purchased this jacket to try out a softshell from OR to see how it compares. I'm not disappointed one bit as this jacket can withstand the elements as well as breath enough to keep you cool. I found this jacket to be the most comfortable of any jacket I use and love the design in fit as well as options. The amount of pockets are great and the tuck away powder skirt is very handy when it's not needed. I've used this jacket in dry as well as wet and humid weather and it works great in both conditions! The cross chest venting is another great idea by OR and it works well even when I'm riding with a pack. Many great features to this jacket to go along with the performance, love it!

Very very good Jacket (Review by Patrol 1)

The Vanguard is a great jacket, hard wearing, solid construction with lots of great features and pockets. We've been using it in the Cairngorms in Scotland for our Ski Patrol this season, can't fault it even in the changeable conditions of the Scottish Highlands.
