As you know I am not a snowboard expert. Anyway I worked more than once in my life in shops that also sold snowboard goods and talking about L1 Premium Goods with snow aficionados you will get this feedback only: it’s apparel of the utmost level of quality.
Our friends at Nitro Distribution sent an L1 snowboard jacket to review and I couldn’t be more stoked on it. It happened already: I’m talking about that Grimey parka that I posted pictures of 3 years ago. I keep on wearing it to this very day and I couldn’t be happier each time.
This Legacy Jacket here shown in its Raven Oxblood colorway, is a two tone jacket that has a strong sporty appeal but if worn properly it may look good even in an urban scenario.
A snowboard jacket gotta keep you warm, it has to be breathable while protecting you (this one has 10k waterproof 10k breathability) and basically it has to look good among all the other snow jacket at the ski resort. I think that all the above features are covered to the maximum here. Go give a look to the tech sheet of this jacket to know in detail how reliable is this garment.
For what concerns its level of protection on course you have the snap away powder skirt and the goggle pocket. But also a chest pocket. Here there is a hole for the cable of your iPod that will pass by an elastic little loop close to the zipper.
On subject of zippers there is one beneath every flap you see… Shall we mention those stretch hand gaiters with thumb holes?
Pull up your hoodie and adjust it with its flat shoe lace but don’t forget to pay attention to little details. Like that eco leather round patch beneath every press button. Happy holidays then, no matter if you spend them at the mountains or in the city: you can count on L1!
