Description

Show Description

Striking a nice balance between performance outerwear and street-worthy style, the Khione Insulated Jacket (named for a goddess who presides over snow and frozen realms) is an insulated waterproof-breathable layer that's great if snow riding is your go-to winter sport. Technical features include warm insulation throughout, fully taped seams, zippered underarm vents and a helmet compatible hood. Diamond quilting bonds the insulation to the lining to keep the shape close to the body and refined.

  • Fabric is a 2-layer polyester with a waterproof-breathable PU laminate, a DWR finish and fully taped seams to seal out water.
  • Ripstop recycled polyester lining features a DWR finish.
  • Insulated with 60g of synthetic Hyperloft insulation throughout.
  • Hood features a stiffened hood and is helmet compatible.
  • Front zip is water resistant with a fleeced chin guard.
  • Mesh lined underarm zips use water-resistant Uretek coated zippers
  • 2 zippered hand pockets with water-resistant zippers.
  • Internal drop-in pocket and internal zippered pocket houses your phone or goggles.
  • 2 zippered chest pockets.
  • Powder skirt with gripper elastic has a loop for attaching to compatible snow pants.
  • Drawcord hems to tune the fit.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue to detect and locate Recco reflectors under snow. Recco technology is not a substitute for skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.

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.

20,000mm
Waterproofness

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.

Windproofness

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.

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