  • Very weatherproof
  • Lightweight

The Bad

  • Hood not helmet compatible

THE VERDICT

Eider hangs its hat on tailoring, and the very toasty Tamos jacket certainly fits and performs very well. It’s certainly full-featured—hosting a virtual library of ski resort jacket bells and whistles. Even with the full slate of features and close attention to detail though it is definitely a bit expensive compared with other jackets offering similar performance.

FULL REVIEW

Materials
Eider’s Tamos is armored by Defender Cocona waterproof/breathable fabric, reinforced on the shoulders and elbows. It is insulated with a moderate amount of synthetic insulation, making this a very toasty piece that should keep you warm even if you somehow happen to ski under a waterfall. The fabric has a bit of stretch, which makes for a better fit even with more-snug European-style tailoring.

Features
The Tamos sports the full gamut of ski-related features: a zip-off powder skirt, interior goggle pocket, tethered goggle wipe, wrist gaiters, and mesh-backed pit zips so you can ski with them open. It’s got waterproof zippers and a long hemline for good weatherproofing.

Eider hangs its hat on tailoring. The Tamos has a snug fit for efficient heating, which works well considering the fabric’s slight stretch. It’s a good looking jacket, though probably a bit expensive. We’re not sure why this jacket deserves to breach the $500 barrier.
