    •    Good weatherproofing.
    •    Powder skirt.
    •    Helmet compatible/removable hood.
    •    Great materials.
    •    Well built.

    •    Heavy.
    •    A little baggy.
    •    Fabric has low breathability.
    •    No pit zips or powder skirt.
    •    Seams not taped (not waterproof).

With a zip-out liner that can also be worn alone, the High Camp 3-in-1 is a versatile, acceptably functional jacket at a very reasonable price. While the jacket provides adequate warmth and weatherproofing, it is relatively heavy and less breathable than others in the test. It also lacks many of the resort-specific amenities of others in the test. At the cheapest price of any jacket we tested, you get what you pay for.
