Instead of tailoring the Quest Motion Fit for standing straight up, Salomon crafted a shell for the bent-forward position of aggressive skiing. That means it won't pull against you when you, say, tuck down a groomer. The three-layer jacket also has a number of other smart features like thumb-looped Lycra cuffs, a built-in goggle wiper, and a Recco avalanche reflector. [$450; salomon.com]
