From the backcountry to the park, from sub-zero to thawing, Thermagraph™ body mapping insulation technology gives you warmth where you need it, letting you stay out longer. GORE-TEX® stretch fabric provides breathable, waterproof and windproof protection, while also providing an unrestricted rang of motion. Fully taped GORE-SEAM® seams and YKK® AquaGuard® water-resistant zippers ensure that water doesn't leak in. The removable and adjustable powder skirt has Lycra stretch panels to provide a snug fit, and have a loop to connect to your 686 snow pants. The inner collar and mouth flap is lined with merino wool to eliminate chafing, and the hood and cuffs are adjustable. Under arm vents quickly dissipate heat, and a smattering of pockets keep all of your gadgets secure and organized. The Stretch GORE-TEX® Zone Thermagraph™ Insulated jacket is a good investment and will allow you to ride confidently, knowing you will be warm and dry season after season.
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.
Polyester Fill - Polyester insulation may not be as warm or light as down, but it's far easier to clean and performs better in wet conditions. If cost is a concern or you live in a wet climate then polyester insulation might be your best option.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the outerwear.
Articulated Fit - Engineered to explore. Ergonomically engineered fits are designed to work with your body as you explore the backcountry, sending it off your favorite park jump or just ripping around the resort.
