A tough 2-layer polyester shell stands up to abrasion from crusty snow or branches, and the DWR treatment keeps the droplets beading and prevents saturation. Inside, a brushed-tricot lining manages moisture and glides smoothly over underlayers. External thigh vents let you regulate your climate on the uptracks, and articulated knees and a gusseted crotch provide unlimited mobility for big air shows.
