Whether you like flowing through the serene powder pillows of the backcountry or hitting the half pipe in your local resort, this jacket is built to keep you warm and dry through it all and everything in between. The super tough 3-layer GORE-TEX material propels water and snow with help from the AquaGuard zippers for one of the highest waterproof ratings on the market. The Thermal Defense System and Face Tech keep you warm when the temps drop while the built-in Recco Rescue System and whistle zipper pull were installed to help keep you safe in case your outing doesn't turn out as planned. Tons of pockets were added to stash your goodies along with a plethora of features like LYRCA hand gaiters, adjustable cuffs and a chafe free collar to keep you comfortable while shredding hard all day. Don't skip out when it comes to your jacket. You won't regret this one.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
