The Flylow Higgins is a good ski-specific "softshell". It's burly, waterproof, and very well-featured. It has a large helmet-compatible hood, watertight zippers, 15-inch pit zips (also watertight), a headphone port, and powder guard snaps.
While it's superb for skiing, don't expect this jacket to conform to the standard definition of a softshell. It's not very breathable and it's not stretchy. Hitting big kickers and floating up to your nose in powder is fine, just don't expect to use this jacket for more mobile activities like ice climbing and Nordic skiing. The hand pockets are a touch on the small side. Other than that, this is one of the best ski jackets out there. Get it and you'll be the only one holding yourself back.
