THE GOOD
    •    Great fit.
    •    Removable powder skirt/hood.
    •    Fabric a bit stretchy.
    •    Very weatherproof.
    •    Lightweight.

THE BAD
    •    Hood not helmet compatible.
    •    A bit expensive.

THE VERDICT
Eider hangs its hat on tailoring, and the very toasty Tamos jacket certainly fits and performs very well. It’s certainly full-featured—hosting a virtual library of ski resort jacket bells and whistles. Even with the full slate of features and close attention to detail, though, it is definitely a bit expensive compared with other jackets offering similar performance.
