Kjus Vail Jacket review. OnTheSnow reviewed this jacket as part of its 2015/2016 Lifestyle Buyers' Guide.

Favorite Features: The Vail Jacket is a fusion of jacket-type features (see fixed hood and light insulation) and sweater-esque looks (see knitted Merino wool/cotton yarn). The result? Kjus has made ski sweaters cool once more—and not in the ironic, ugly sweater party sense.

Room for Improvement: We experienced a zipper malfunction with the product we reviewed; likely a sample issue that won't show up as a recurring problem in the line.

Fit: The Vail Jacket delivers an athletic, comfortable fit; generous length on the bottom hem and sleeves.

Manufacturer Description: A new midlayer concept that combines a nice knitted look with the stretch and warmth of a synthetic insulation. For a more casual look with lots of functions.
