GORE-TEX® C-Knit™ - A three-layer laminate with a unique knit backer that makes this garment lighter and more breathable simultaneously.
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.
V.Co-Operative Series - Volcom has teamed up with leading skate, snow and surf professionals to design custom clothing to their own tastes and tech specifications. Every piece of V.Co-Operative clothing has been meticulously tested and approved by the sponsored professional.
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.
Face Tech™ - Face-Tech is a detachable facemask that clips to the inside of Volcom hoods. This innovative design easily pulls over the head without having to unzip your jacket. The use of fleece and mesh offer protection and breathability superior to any balacva or neck gaiter. The tension of Face-Tech is adjustable via a pull cord found externally on the back of the hood. When the weather subsides, slide Face-Tech back over your dome and forget about it. Unclip and wash separately as needed.
Stretch - Superior stretch provides increased mobility and recovery allowing the garment to hold its shape and form.
YKK® AquaGuard® Water Repellent Zipper - A smooth, durable, water repellent zipper that enhances the function and performance of your high quality garment.
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.
Lycra® Wrist Gaiters - Soft, stretchy Lycra® fends off the cold without adding bulk or restricting movement.
