2018 Mountain Hardwear Photon Zip T Review by A Better Ski

Lets take a quick look at the Mountain Hardwear Photon Zip T.  This layer was designed with the hikers, backpackers ans cool weather runners in mind. But we are here talking about ski gear so lets talk about how this piece could fit into your layering system.  The Photon Zip T has a casual fit much like a long sleeve T.  I was watching my review and I could tell that I liked the way it felt, cool and soft.  I’m a big fabric texture guy, especially with layers against my skin, and I did really like the feel here.  Since the Photon Zip T is breath-able and moisture-wicking, it would make a good choice for some spring time skinning adventures when the sun is out and temperatures are mild.  I would like to have this layer with something like an insulated vest to retain core heat and a light weight shell for wind protection on the ride down. Or if you are a two layer kind-of-guy, wear the Photon Zip T under your favorite heavy jacket to keep your skin dry and you looking cool inside the bar after hitting the slopes.
