When the dawn patrol calls you must answer. Fresh, untouched powder is a dream worth chasing and the Seen jacket was built to chase dreams. Complete waterproof breathable construction and body-mapped insulation make this jacket a solid option when building your backcountry layering system. With a dropped hem, internal powder skirt and wrist gaiters, you can crash through powdery pillows knowing the snow is staying right where you want it. And, when it is time to turn around and do it all over again, the jacket is ready, with a lift pass pocket on one sleeve and pit zips, if the return trip is human powered.

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.
