This jacket has all the bells and whistles to keep you dry and protected even if you're chin deep in fresh powder. From the recycled nylon ripstop and DWR coating to the tough GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, no storm can stop you from doing the activities you love. Under arm vents allow you to release excess heat, while plenty of zippered and internal stash pockets keep your things dry and secure. The built in RECCO® system was installed to help S&R crews find you in the case of an avalanche. The PowSlayer isn't just the ultimate winter backcountry jacket, because of its minimal insulation, this jacket helps you seal out the elements year-round to keep you protected in all weather conditions.
GORE-TEX® Pro - GORE-TEX® Pro fabric is built for maximized ruggedness and is ideal for extreme and extended exposure in the outdoors. This revolutionary, multilayer membrane material features a unique 100% ePTFE-based micro-structure that's durably bonded to the outer layer of the garment and includes a specially developed inner lining.
This three-layer system provides superior wind and water protection without sacrificing breathability.
RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it. RECCO® is utilized by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. 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.
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.
Recycled Nylon - Like polyester, nylon fiber is made from petroleum. Some recycled nylon comes from post-industrial waste fiber, discarded industrial fishing nets, yarn collected from spinning factories, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber. Incorporating as much recycled nylon as possible lessens the dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. It curbs discards, thereby prolonging landfill life and reducing toxic emissions from incinerators. It helps promote new recycling streams for nylon products that are no longer usable. And it causes less air, water, and soil contamination compared to using non-recycled nylon.
Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.
DWR Coating - A Durable Water Resistant finish applied to the exterior of the garment.
