This iconic shell jacket is made for freeriding but works perfectly for general ski/snowboard activities on and off-slope as well as general outdoor activities like trekking and mountaineering. It is made in a premium GORE-TEX® PRO most breathable fabric. We use it because It's the world-leading quality for durable waterproofness (28,000mm), optimized breathability, and total windproofness. The fabric is a 3-layer plain weave 70D GORE-TEX® PRO most breathable (RET 6) fabric with a recycled nylon face. This ensures durable, reliable weather protection and optimized breathability perfect for active movement. It has a microgrid solution-dyed backer. Key features include a protective storm hood with one-hand adjustment, two-way underarm zipper, two-way front zipper, Napoleon chest pocket, an inside mesh pocket, mesh-lined front ventilation, keycard pocket on the overarm, asymmetric cuffs with Velcro adjustment, integrated hand-gaiters, adjustable bottom hem, and zip-off powder skirt with gripper elastic and snap-seal solution. The jacket has a technical fit with articulated arms for optimal mobility and a longer cut in the back for extra protection. The product, first introduced in 2004 but continuously improved over time, is seen as the first first jacket made for freeride skiing/snowboarding with its innovative features, new cut and bold colors.
