The Alternate Jacket has everything you're looking for in a shell jacket, including a price tag that won't make you cringe. But that doesn't mean you're sacrificing quality, sometimes you really can have it all. A V-Science 2-layer shell and breathable lining system combine to bring you great waterproofing and breathability, while an adjustable powder skirt and cuffs lock out any stray powder that tries to make its way in. A standard fit allows for easy layering on chilly days, and plenty of pockets, including handwarmer pockets, give a convenient and stylish place to stash your goods.

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.


Zip Tech® Jacket to Pant Interface - Nothing lowers motivation faster than snow jammed down your pants and up the back of your jacket. A V-Co patented invention Zip Tech® allows you to zip the powder skirt of any Volcom jacket to any Volcom pant, keeping snow out and heat in with no restriction of movement.

Chafe Free Collar - Extra soft tricot liner to protect your face.

Asked by Shelly on 9/18/2017
How much insulation is in this jacket
Answered by James D (Tactics Employee) on 9/20/2017
This jacket is not insulated, it's just a shell. This will still be warm, but on any particularly cold days you'll want to have some layers underneath.
