Show Description

A windproof, waterproof barrier designed for skiers and climbers. The adventure-hungry Synergy Jacket is made with the gold standard of waterproof-breathable technology, GORE-TEX®, with a durable yet packable face fabric. Great alpine-specific features include harness- and backpack-accessible pockets, a high collar to keep out blowing snow, and a helmet compatible hood with a cordlock adjustment.

  • Made of 70-denier nylon with a GORE-TEX membrane and DWR finish for superior waterproofness and breathability.
  • GORE-TEX® C-Knit lining is comfortable next-to-skin, supple when you move, and highly breathable.
  • Fully seam-taped construction keeps you dry and comfortable in howling conditions.
  • Water-resistant front zipper is sewn and glued in place with an inner storm flap to seal out wind.
  • Underarm vents have 2-way watertight zips, for releasing heat.
  • Contoured cuffs layer well with gloves and close with Velcro® tabs.
  • 2 front pockets close with water-tight zippers.
  • 1 internal pocket keeps personal items secure.
  • Shock-cord adjustable hem with 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.

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.

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.

Venting Underarm zips
  • 2 front zippered
  • 1 internal drop-in

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.

Length Hip-length
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.
