Mistakes in our 2014 Buyers Guide are corrected here. SKI regrets the errors.

We’re digging into a slice of humble pie right about now: Due to some production glitches of both a human and technological nature, there are a number of gaffes in our 2014 Buyers Guide. We don’t want you guys to miss out on some truly great gear because we blew it, so here’s a mulligan. Our sincere apologies to anyone who was confused by the coverage. We messed up.

Helly Hansen Mission H2 Flow is Helly Hansen’s patented technology combining a layer of PrimaLoft insulation with a venting system and a waterproof-breathable outer shell. It makes this all-mountain jacket highly versatile, allowing wearers to regulate body temperature in varied of conditions, from resort to sidecountry. $400; hellyhansen.com

Arc’Teryx Macai For its first foray into down, Arc’teryx tapped two heavy hitters for just the right mix of performance and warmth: Gore-Tex Pro keeps moisture out, and a 750-fill European down, kept in place by Down Composite Mapping, provides the furnace. The result: a lightweight, toasty warm, and extra-durable jacket. $850; arcteryx.com

Arc’Teryx Caden A nimble yet highly functional shell designed for backcountry skiers as well as minimalist resort skiers, the Caden is a Gore-Tex Pro piece with microseam technology aimed to reduce the weight of the jacket. The adjustable hood is helmet-compatible and a stretch powder skirt connects to your pants. $650; arcteryx.com

Columbia Premier Packer A nice choice for anyone who skis in varying conditions and likes to stow an extra layer in a jacket or pants pocket, the Premier Packer does the trick. Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective layer traps body heat, and the Omni-Shield treatment keeps the jacket dry. It packs into its own interior pocket so, at 12 ounces, it’s ready to grab and go. $160; columbia.com

 

Marmot Alpha Pro Polartec Alpha insulation throughout the body and Polartec Powerstretch Pro on the sleeves make this hybrid midlayer a great piece for active backcountry adventures in cold weather. $225; marmot.com

 


Oakley Lutsen Girls who play rough will appreciate the burliness of these pants, which manage to look sharp while taking a beating. Chalk it up to the fully taped seams, laser-cut zippers, and abrasion-resistant patches on the lower legs. $330; oakley.com


Obermeyer Sienna With a slimming cut combined with technical components, the Sienna is a resort jacket for women not afraid to, well ski. PrimaLoft beneath a Genesis stretch fabric moves like skin, and Obermeyer’s Amplified Breathability vents like skin, too. Seam-sealed zippers in contrasting colors are a nice touch. $425; obermeyer.com
