The VCO Inferno is an excellent bang for your buck, featuring a V-Science 2-Layer Shell with 10k of waterproofing and breathability. Equipped with a V-Science Breathable Lining System and under arm venting, this jacket can keep you warm when you need it, while still offering max airflow for those warm, spring days in the park. The Zip Tech® interface is a super cool feature that allows you to zip the jacket to any compatible Volcom pants to create a seal against unwanted snow entry, because there's nothing worse than taking a spill in the powder and ending up with a jacket full of snow.
Critically Taped - On outerwear with critically taped seams you only have taping at the key points where potential leakage can occur. This is acceptable, or even advantageous if you live in a dry climate, if you're more concerned with breathability than dealing with wet weather then outerwear featuring critically taped seams is the way to go.
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.
