GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX® fabrics.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
Articulated Fit - Ergonomically designed to work with every inch of your body while exploring the backcountry, ending it of your favorite park jump or just ripping around the resort.
Articulation through waist, hips and leg. 21.75in leg opening.
RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it.

RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar. Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.
GORE-SEAM® Tape - Supported by reliable Gore equipment and expertise, this unique tape ensures that every seam and stitch hole is sealed. All GORE-TEX® jackets and pants are fully taped exclusively with GORE-SEAM® tape.
