"7/24 Ride Jacket" is an unconventional name for a jacket, at least in English (Millet is French) but it is nonetheless a very apt one, because this jacket is for the season-pass skier who can be found on the slopes day-in and day-out. Millet have held nothing back in its features or construction, and it includes several unique touches such as a collar gusset that allows the collar to be made larger (for sheltering your face on the lift) or smaller (so that it stays out of the way on the ride down). Also of note is the Air Booster mesh/foam that runs up the spine of the jacket and feels rather like the padding used on many backpacks; it's quite pleasant to the touch, and would no doubt feel good when pressed against the hard back of an older chairlift seat. Waterproof DryEdge Stretch fabric, a hefty amount of polyester insulation, Schoeller Keprotec reinforcements on the shoulders, and enough pockets for all of your stuff round out the complete package.Feature list from Millet:

Originally founded as a manufacturer of shopping bags and haversacks in the early 1920s, Millet gained great experience with backpack manufacturing during World War II and by 1950 was equipping the French expeditions to the Himalayas. The ascent of Annapurna by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal in that year - the first-ever ascent over 8,000 meters - vaulted Millet backpacks to even greater prominence, and in the decades that followed they made many further innovations in the backpack field, and also branched out into mountaineering clothing, sleeping bags, footwear, and climbing ropes.
Today, after 60 years of expeditions, Millet remains faithful to its roots and offers each mountaineer, hiker, and skier the opportunity to outfit themselves head-to-toe in true French style.
