This cozy jacket is built with some of the market's most innovative technologies to keep you shielded from the harsh winter weather. A V-Science 2-Layer shell covers the outside with 15k of waterproofing and breathability to ensure you stay dry and comfortable through the storms. Volcom installed their signature V-Science TDS® Infrared Lining System with polyester fill insulation to provide immaculate warmth, and their Zip Tech® jacket-to-pant interface to create a seal against snow-entry when zipped to compatible Volcom snow pants. You can't go wrong with this much technology packed into a jacket at such an affordable price.
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.
Thermal Defense System (T.D.S.) - Volcom's Thermal Defense System gives riders the most advanced temperature control by directing the heat our bodies naturally produce towards your core. Through the collaboration of strategically placed lightweight and packable thermal insulated panels, zippered vents and ultra-breathable interior lining, "T.D.S." provides unparalleled comfort and performance to battle all earthly conditions, and beyond.
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.
Insulated Lycra® Wrist Gaiters - Soft, stretchy insulated Lycra® fends off the cold without adding bulk or restricting movement.
