2018 Armada Gypsum Jacket Womens Review by A Better Ski

Today we are looking at the Armada Gypsum Jacket Women’s. This jacket is a shell providing protection from the elements for the average winter day conditions.  At first look, this jacket felt great when wearing it, long and tailored. This jacket has a light weight and breathable feel and i love the color schemes available. Let’s take a closer look.

Special thanks to Kittredge Sports in Mammoth Lakes
Tester:  Alessandra
Size:  M
Waterproofing and Breath-ability: The Armada Gypsum Jacket Women’s has 10,000mm waterproof/breathable + DWR.  This level of waterproofing is good enough for your average weather conditions. For heavy, wet snowfall, I would take out a different jacket. This is the kind of jacket that i would take out on a warmer spring like day. This jacket has a moderate breathability and the addition of two mesh lined pit vents adds extra versatility.
Warmth: The Armada Gypsum Jacket Women’s is a shell, providing protection from wind and light amounts of water. It will not give any insulating warmth when the temperatures drop towards 45 F, i would make sure to wear a good base layer and an insulated mid layer.
Fit: The Armada Gypsum Jacket Women’s has a long, tailored fit, that felt comfortable and has no movement restrictions. I loved the long cut in the back because it protects me when im sitting on a cold chair lift. The hood fits over the helmet easily and feels confortable when turning my head from side to side.
Features: Mesh Lining; 100% Seam Sealed; YKK Zippers; Helmet Compatible Hinged Hood; External-Access Music Pocket with Headphone Port;RF Pocket on Sleeve; Adjustable Hem; Adjustable Cuffs; Lycra Wrist Gaiters; Mesh Lined Pit Vents; Internal Goggle Pocket; Adjustable Powder Skirt; Jacket to Pant Snap Interface

Bottom Line: The Armada Gypsum Jacket Women’s is a well crafted, great looking shell well equipped to keep you comfortable on early season sunny days to care free spring skiing.
