Show Description

A solution to the unpredictable backcountry. It puts a windproof, waterproof barrier between your adventure-hungry self and Mother Nature’s wildest, weirdest storms. Designed for skiers and climbers, it has harness-accessible pockets and a high collar that keeps out spindrift. The hood cinches over a helmet and is fully adjustable so your vision isn't obscured when looking up or to the sides.

  • Made of lightweight, supple GORE-TEX Pro with a bonded PTFE laminate and DWR treatment.
  • Fully seam-taped construction keeps you dry and comfortable in howling conditions.
  • Helmet-compatible hood has a 3-way interior adjustment for a snag-free profile.
  • High collar is separate from hood. Lined with polyester fleece.
  • Underarm vents have 2-way watertight zippers, for releasing heat and perspiration.
  • Glued pocket flaps and plackets for a clean profile.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate Recco reflectors under snow. Recco technology is not a substitute for avalanche skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.
  • Cuffs are gusseted to fit gloves and secure with Velcro® tabs.
  • 4 pockets with watertight zippers and zipper garages. 1 interior zippered pocket.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.


Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Waterproof with fully taped seams
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.

Length Below hip
Durable water repellency

Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
