The Naikoon follows on with Picture's eco-friendly approach to designing ski jackets by incorporating 100 per cent recycled polyester in its construction, so you can feel all worthy as you hoon down the mountain.
But does it perform? Well the fully waterproof and breathable outer fabric does the trick, and sits on top of an insulated lining to keep you warm. This does add bulk and weight of course, but the Naikoon isn't selling itself as a lightweight shell. Indeed, it's very warm and will work especially well in colder conditions, and the jacket's stretch outer fabric provides good freedom of movement.
The Naikoon has a stack of rider-specific facilities, including its helmet compatible hood. Unfortunately, the hood let things down by not having an ergonomic fit, and as such peripheral vision was restricted when it was worn it without a helmet.
There are zipped pockets aplenty - two on the chest, two hand pockets, lift pass pocket on left arm and a zipped inner security pocket with - nice touch - an internal waterproof phone case (but no audio ports). There's also a large inner mesh stash pocket for goggles or other bulky items.
Other useful features include a powder skirt, pit zips and hand gaiters, so you have pretty much all you need in a serious, insulated riding jacket.
