Homeschool Vices 2016 - 2015 Review by The Good Ride

The Homeschool Vices Jacket is the continuation of the Cosmos Jacket from 2014 but has upgraded material. In the last two years they keep tweaking the Vices and the 16 has a really light fit and feel.

Homeschool Vices Past Reviews

2015 Homeschool Vices Jacket.

Now this jacket isn’t the highest when it comes to waterproofing but I don’t know if there is another jacket out there with different tech that has this much breathability. Now breathability is just as important as waterproofing in a lot of ways. Especially if you run hot or sweat a lot. I’ve personally never felt anything like it. I’ll get hot on the run down and get sweaty but by the time I’m off the chair the sweat inside has evaporated. It really helps regulate heat when you are dry inside. It’s even better if you combine this with their 1st and mid layers as they have the same very breathable tech.

Homeschool is one of the few snowboard specific companies out there that are really pushing to make high level technical outerwear.

Homeschool also runs a little on the baggy side these days compared to most outerwear which makes it much better for layering up. Many jackets and pants have become very tight the past few years so if you compare to todays pants and jackets Homeschool runs on the baggy side but if you compare them to jackets and pants a few years ago they would be normal.
