The Toaster is a great jacket for extremely cold conditions because it has 80g of synthetic insulation to give you plenty of warmth. The ergonomic hood locks out the wet and cold and there is a chafe-free chin panel. This is definitely a jacket that works on and off the mountain.

Hammer Cloth - Rugged and substantial with a soft hand fell and 10,000mm waterproofing and 8,000g/m² breathability, Hammer Cloth is designed to withstand sustained abuse from rails, concrete, and mother nature's steeliest storms.
Critically Taped - On outerwear with critically taped seams you only have taping at the key points where potential leakage can occur. This is acceptable, or even advantageous if you live in a dry climate, if you're more concerned with breathability than dealing with wet weather then outerwear featuring critically taped seams is the way to go.
Low-Loft Synthetic - Low-loft insulation provides warmth without losing versatility. Because low-loft insulation is made of synthetic fibers it maintains much of its insulating ability even when wet. A lower loft rating means it won't keep you as warm as jackets with high loft but it's more versatile and dries more quickly than traditional down.
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.
Blaster Long - Enough room to tweak, plus one-inch extra front and back length for full coverage.
Freedom Series - Freedom comes from a legacy of hard fought toughness. The 10K/10K weatherproofing stats provide elevated performance, while maintaining superior accessibility. If you're hard on your outerwear, but prefer something easy on your pocket book, look no further: Airblaster Freedom series will keep you progressing strong all season long.
YKK® AquaGuard® Waterproof Zippers - The Aquaguard® zipper's new tooth design provides enhanced water repellency compared to coil or standard individual element closures, so you'll stay drier than you would with a traditional zipper.
Eco DWR - Environmentally friendly and retains 80% repellency after 20 machine wash cycles.
2-Way Front Zipper - Two pulls allow the opening to be closed or opened in two opposite directions at the same time. Unzipping the bottom zipper a bit allows for a wider range of movement and offers easy access to internal pockets.
