In the advent of soft shell jackets, it’s rare that I bring a Gore-tex shell with me when backcountry skiing. When I do, it’s more in the spring and summer, when the moisture is in the form of rain instead of snow. Even still, most of the time it sits in the bottom of my pack. I tend to be a folder, as opposed to a stuffer and ‘The Burrito Roll’ is a handy way to fold your jacket so it is compact and easy to pack. It also doesn’t blow away in the wind when you’re digging around in the bottom of you’re pack looking for your goggles.
