The Leda is a killer GORE-TEX® jacket, offering the highest level of wind and waterproofing on the market. This jacket features original art by Peter Carrington and supports B4BC (Boarding For Breast Cancer) with proceeds from every purchase going to help raise breast cancer awareness. The inside of the jacket has a soft taffeta lining with mesh for breathability, and features a ton of pocket space for everything from your goggles to your portable mp3 player. Volcom even installed their signature Zip Tech® jacket-to-pant interface which allows you to zip the jacket to any compatible Volcom pants to create a complete seal against unwanted snow entry. If you want to get the most out of your jacket, the Leda has a practically unbeatable amount of tech for the price.

GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX fabrics.
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.
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.
