Great value jacket - I'm sticking with Santa Cruz!,
This review is from: Santa Cruz Paradox Men's Snow Jacket (Sports Apparel)
Tried and tested in early February in Chamonix!
I'll be the first to admit that the price first attracted me to the Santa Cruz Paradox Men's Snow Jacket, seemed a somewhat doubt-able heritage given its skateboarding company from the 70s... But on the slopes held up really well and twinned with the Santa Cruz Andromeda Men's Snow Pant kept me warm and toasty despite being in a white out at the top of Vallee Blanche.
Seems durable and I'm sticking with Santa Cruz in the future, only problem being it seems kind-of difficult to get a full range in the UK.
Also as a point of honesty the pants did develop a small hole near the base and one of the gators hooks fell of as soon as I bought it. But I've really enjoyed the Santa Cruz gear I bought so even this hasn't put me off. Jacket also lacks an arm pocket for your lift pass which means sticking it in the chest pockets and occasionally having to hump the gate.
The jacket is the best I've ever owned (previously had jackets from West Coast and Special Blend)and at the low price here would recommend to everyone!
