Cold days don't keep you inside. And for shredders who hate missing a single day of the season, this ultra-warm jacket guarantees your daily dose of snow even when it's fierce out. The bomber shell is made of recycled polyester and PFC-free DWR, and the moisture wicking lining is made from leftover fabric from factories. It's proof that it's possible to produce technically advanced outerwear with an eco-friendly mindset.
- Dryplay 2-layer fabric combines recycled polyester with a polyurethane membrane for reliable weatherproofing.
- PFC-free DWR sheds water and snow, and maintains the fabric's breathability.
- 80g Thermal Std synthetic insulation through the torso, arms and hood cuts the chill.
- Adjustable hood is compatible with a helmet.
- Underarm zips let you vent excess heat.
- Gripped hem powder skirt and a jacket-to-pants attachment keep drafts or powder out.
- Wrist gaiters with thumb loops seal out the snow.

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.

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.
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.
