Staying dry and comfortable on backcountry tours is possible, and it’s made possible by AscentShell™ technology. The most breathable waterproof comfort in a 3L stretchy membrane, this ride and ski jacket is perfect for adventurers who want lightweight protection while they’re moving fast uphill. An adjustable hood with HoodLock™ holds down excess fabric when your helmet is removed. Pit zips make it easy to ventilate excess heat when your pace turns up, and waterproof zippers with internal stash pockets keep valuables dry when the weather rolls in and powder turns call. Feel the difference when you try on the Skytour AscentShell Jacket yourself.

Intuitive stretch. Reliability in wet weather.
Since 2016, Outdoor Research's proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospinning process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes. Never crunchy or noisy, AscentShell™ is just as comfortable as a soft shell, with the performance of a hard shell. Air permeable and breathable, AscentShell™ vents perspiration and excess heat during aerobic activity, while its light weight saves precious energy on demanding endeavors.
