Championship Jacket
Stephen Francis

Hi! We haven't had much snow in California yet so I have not had a chance to use my championship jacket yet. But it looks well constructed and I will let you know once I get out on the hill. BTW, last year I bought a long sleeve quarter zipper base layer which I love for hikes. I bought the fleece pants which I really love for winter hikes and hanging at the house. The front pocket sustained a wearing out with a hole in it now. That is a bummer but overall I have been very happy with all of your products. I am also an aging sometimes Masters racer at 61. When I was the age of the average Sync racer we did not have the sort of culture you have created for the racers and I love what you have done in this regard. Cheers!


This jacket is beautiful and has a great fit. It is thick and substantial in weight, fitted nicely through the waist so it gives a nice shape, has lots of pockets, zippers appear to be heavy duty, and it's a nice color. Have not yet tested it skiing but I know it will hold up and be warm. I'm allergic to down, so the synthetic primaloft is great and hopefully the water resistance is very high. There are only 2 things I would change: maybe a tad more stretch in the shell fabric, and I really don't need the faux fur on the removable hood. This appears to be a serious skiers jacket. For reference I'm 5'8" and 130lbs but ordered a womens large so I could layer when needed and cinch up a bit when not. As a Northern Midwest skier we get a lot of wet and stormy days, with lots of racing, so hoping this holds up in the worst of it. Thanks SYNC!

Finally found the perfect jacket!

I have been looking for the perfect jacket for a while and finally found it! It fits perfectly. Style and great looks meets functionality and warmth!
