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. 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 and chafe free collar 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™ - 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.
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, the heavily imitated jacket-to-pant interface 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. Falling has never been more enjoyable.
