From blistering winds to slushy spring days, this GORE-TEX® jacket will keep you protected from the elements so you can shred without a worry. Insulated wrist gaiters, water repellent zippers and the jacket-to-pant interface help to lock out the ice and snow while the V-Science Cuffs, Face Tech™ 2 and Super Suede Chin Guard bring you all day comfort so you can make more happy, fun memories and less miserably cold and uncomfortable ones. Open up the vents on those warm bluebird days to keep from overheating and working up a sweat, and if you end up with a nasty landing in a ditch off trail or wrap yourself around a tree, you can always blow on the whistle built into the zipper to alert passers-by you're in need of assistance. It might just save your butt.
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.
Face Tech™ 2 - An overhauled version of Volcom's integrated face mask system. This new version features a more streamlined interface for connecting to the a jacket and a better fit. It is removable, washable, and now features a sliding Fast Clip. When not in use, the mask can be stashed away in a hidden pocket.
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.
Insulated Lycra® Wrist Gaiters - Soft, stretchy insulated Lycra® fends off the cold without adding bulk or restricting movement.
