Description

A windproof, waterproof barrier designed for skiers and climbers. Our Synergy Jacket uses a lightweight, supple and packable face fabric that doesn't compromise on durability. This pared-down shell uses GORE-TEX®, the gold standard of waterproof-breathable technology. Great alpine-specific features include harness-accessible pockets, a high collar to keep out blowing snow, and a hood with cordlock adjustments that's helmet compatible.

  • Made of 70-denier nylon with a GORE-TEX PTFE laminate and DWR (durable water repellent) finish for superior waterproofness and breathability
  • GORE-TEX C-Knit lining is soft on skin while reducing weight and increasing breathability
  • Fully seam-taped construction to keep you dry and comfortable in howling conditions
  • Climbing helmet-compatible hood has embedded Cohaesive cordlock adjustments for a snag-free profile
  • Water-resistant front zip is glued in place and has an inner storm flap to keep precipitation from sneaking in
  • Underarm vents have 2-way watertight zips, for releasing heat and perspiration
  • Cuffs are gusseted to fit gloves and secure with Velcro® tabs
  • 2 chest pockets have water-resistant zippers and zipper garages, and expand to hold bulky items like gloves
  • Chest pockets are accessible when you have on a harness or hipbelt
  • 1 stretch woven interior zippered pocket
  • Shock-cord adjustable hem with embedded Cohaesive cordlock adjustment
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate it under snow. Recco tech is not a substitute for avalanche-skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry
