How funny! I fell in love with the clean, uncluttered look of the Absolute Joys! I can imagine how much easier they are to find, though.

Sitting here waiting for my new skis since last week, daily checking STP tracking for an arrival date, had given me too much time to think about it! I'm sure after a half-hour of skiing, the color won't matter. As you say, covered with snow!

And a picture of my ski jacket:

That's an awesome jacket newboots! Both in a "I love the way it looks", and a "it's technically a fantastic jacket". I actually bought the Brigandine pants in that color last year...but they didn't fit right, way too tight in the hips. And congrats on your first pair of skis, super exciting.

I scored on that jacket last year - past-season deal at Marshall's. It is a great jacket, and I'm managing to get over the red/black skis vs. purple/yellow (and pink liner) jacket. I think the excitement of new skis was starting to bubble over into unnecessary buying! This group, usually such enablers of spending down your retirement savings for new gear, teased me back into common sense. Thanks, friends!

Don't worry, soon enough you'll have a quiver of skis, and one of them is bound to match a jacket or two. No need to rush into these kind of things.:wink:
I'm a little late to the thread, but yes! What happens when you want another pair of skis? :wink:

I also shouldn't be commenting on matching colors, because I currently look like Barney. (On the search for light gray pants that fit)

Congrats on the new skis, @newboots !
The black and purple look great! I wear plenty of black and gray professionally, but I like some color on the hill. Hopefully the snowboarders can see me!

I know you are all going to be very relieved about this. Depending on the light, the red-and-black skis almost look pink and purple. With more light, it's definitely red, but this does mean that the clash with my purple jacket will not create agony for me on the hill!

Aren't you glad I put everybody through this? (You'll know now to ignore me in the future.)

This thread reminds me that I haven't heard back from Arc'teryx yet. They'd said I should hear by yesterday. But ... it's unlikely they simply lost my jacket in the pile, so it probably wouldn't do any good to call ... at least for a few more days. The description of the piles of clothes they had to evaluate sounded ... daunting.

They need a little more time, more than likely. You can hang in there!

I knew it would be worth the wait.

Just received this.

I've just assessed your jacket here at the Arc'teryx Warranty and Repair center and I see the abrasion on the shoulder, along with the fabric fading. Normally these two things are not covered under warranty, however, I am also seeing that the layers of the Gore-Tex fabric have begun to separate from each other, specifically around the cuffs. This is considered to be a fabric defect, but it cannot be repaired. For this reason, I would like to offer you a full replacement under warranty.

Please take a look at the current colour selection for this garment through the link below, if it says we have the size and color you would prefer in stock, I will be able to send this out to you.

Feel free to browse our entire collection and if your chosen replacement is more expensive than what I've offered, you'll just need to pay the difference. I strongly suggest making your way to a local Arc'teryx dealer to try on the new models.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and contact me directly to place your order. When confirming your choice, please confirm your size, color, and shipping address.

I haven't chosen any - I'd like to try the new cut on at the store in Denver - but the yellow is sold out in my size, anyway!

I like the Dahlia.
Yeah, that or blue seem like the two possibilities. The blue looks kinda meh.

The Ravenna looks intriguing, if it isn't *too* slim fit - also has a purple - but I'm not sure if it comes down as far on the leg? I like long jackets.
