Kjus Formula - Hard Shell Jackets: Reviews


Good for Resort
The Formula is the Porsche of this test—damned pricey, just as flashy, but worth every cent. Kjus's designers tossed in everything from an integrated balaclava to a dedicated cell-phone pocket with a keeper leash. So plentiful are the hidden accessories that the goggle wipe features a graphic to help you find them all. Most important, though, the jacket performed along with the best in class. Stretchy Thinsulate insulation (enough for cold lift rides) and soft, four-way stretch fabric allowed free movement, while the waterproof-breathable membrane rivaled that of any hard shell we tested. Just maybe find a job that pays in euros to save some cheese. 2.9 lbs; kjus.com
