When you head out seeking turns, drops and distant untouched lines, you want a jacket that can adapt to all conditions. The Rubicon uses breathable ripstop fabric to move moisture out when you're setting the up-track. Lightweight insulation keeps you warm when you’ve stopped to assess the situation. All in all, it's a balanced piece that smooths out the transition from a windy northside ascent to a sunny, south-facing bowl.

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