KJUS Men's FRX Pro Jacket

KJUS Men's FRX Pro Jacket 5 5 1 1
Superb I snowboard rather than ski. Took this out for the first time yesterday and I can't recommend it highly enough. The stretch in the fabric is incredible and offers great ease of movement. I usually take a size 50 in a suit jacket, but got a size 54 in this, which is perfect for allowing enough space for layering if necessary during January. Length is perfect, sleeves a little long but the fit on the chest is just right. The jacket has had some design changes compared to the one in the S+R blog, which I confirmed with Kjus on friday last. The hood has been redesigned and is amazing, though my helmet is too large to fit under it properly. i never wear a hood over my helmet anyway, so not an issue for me. The hood fits perfectly over a beanie though and has a velcro system to fold the hood on itself when not in use, to keep the snow out. This jacket does not have wrist gaiters, which again for me is a plus. On the S+R blog, the pocket information is incorrect - the small zip that they indicate as the phone pocket is actually the reach-through pocket to the inside of the jacket. The phone pocket is on the other side - a padded pouch that fits my iphone5S very snugly. The 2 front pockets are massive and are expandable (the expandability is the triangles of material underneath the main zips on the front, they are not flaps covering additional pockets.) Inside the jacket there is one goggle net with a large, high quality goggle wipe attached. No other pockets inside. I would highly recommend this jacket. Even though it is eyewateringly expensive, you can see the difference in quality compared to the plastic feeling gore-tex that I have used until now. The difference in comfort and breathability is immediately noticeable, even though the gore is rated around the same on the breathability scale - I always have gotten clammy. Not so with this jacket. The freedom of movement of the stretch, particularly across the back of the jacket, is such an advantage when winding up for a spin on jumps. Anyone considering a jacket with the new gore-text pro, should seriously consider this instead. I definitely won't be going back to gore after this. 17 November 2014

Glossary

Breathability Rating:Breathability is measured as a rating in grams of how much vapour a square metre of fabric will allow to pass through in 24 hours (g/m2/24). For general use, 10000g/m2/24 and above is desirable. It should be noted that breathable fabrics do not stop you sweating and care should be taken as to clothing worn beneath waterproof/breathable shells. High quality base layers and fleece or insulated midlayers should in themselves draw vapour from the body and pass it outwards, thus allowing the outer fabric to do its job. Cotton clothing should never be worn as part of a performance clothing layering system.
Waterproof Rating:This is measured and expressed as Hydrostatic Head in millimetres (mm). To find out the Hydrostatic Head of a fabric the manufacturer will take a clear tube and clamp their material over the bottom end. They will then fill the tube slowly with water and watch to see how high the column of water can get before the material lets drips through. The higher the hydrostatic head, the better the water protection. The European Standard a fabric must meet to be classified as waterproof is a Hydrostatic Head rating of 1500mm, and on average, outerwear fabrics tend to have a hydrostatic head of 10000mm and above.
Dermizax® NX:Exceptionally breathable, waterproof and windproof membrane technology with outstanding stretch properties. At its heart lies a non-porous hydrophilic PU membrane specially constructed on a molecular level that allows vapour molecules to pass easily from inside a garment to the outside. 100% waterproof, it is also environmentally friendly as it only generates in its production 1/10th of the CO2 emissions compared to other membranes.
RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector: Using sophisticated radar technology, the Recco reflector forms the passive element of a 2-part avalanche search system. Ski resorts and mountain rescue teams carry Recco detectors, which send out a search signal, and the Recco® reflector bounces back a directional signal that directs the rescuer straight to the reflector. More than 600 resorts and rescue services around the world use the Recco Rescue System as part of their immediate response.
White Dragon:White Dragon in the 3-layer jacket results in maximum durability and a higher pilling factor with a better wicking effect (transporting moisture faster and more efficently to the surface).
Fieldsensor®:A high-performance wicking knit fabric that combines effective moisture management with high insulation for maximum comfort and warm, perspiration-free dryness, no matter how strenuous your activities are. Its brushed inner side traps air to keep you warm, even in severe weather conditions, without the weight and bulk of conventional insulating fabrics, while its 4-way stretch ensures a snug body fit and easy, unrestricted movement. It also has a tight knitting construction that protects you from wind chill, and excellent breathability that allows air circulation within the fabric.
