The GORE-TEX® guarantee to keep you dry is reason enough to spend the extra penny, but the Volcom W Jacket has much more than just that. Create a tight seal against incoming chill and powder with a hidden toggle hood cinch, Zip Tech® jacket to pant interface, V-Science 2-way cuff system, and an adjustable powder skirt. A goggle pocket, media pocket, and handwarmer pockets allow you to stash your goods and keep warm. So go ahead, spend that pretty penny and leave the mountain feeling sorry for all those sad wet people, because you won't be one of them.
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.
bluesign® Approved Fabric - Guarantees that each product uses only safe chemicals and was made to meet the highest standards of natural resource conservation, consumer and worker safety, and clean air and water discharge during manufacturing.
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.
