When you’re doing a backcountry ski tour or heading out on an all-day hike in the rainy season, you want to be prepared. We’re talking bringing the right equipment, plenty of snacks, and—wait for it—this waterproof jacket. Performance-built and made-to-last, this men’s rain jacket is constructed with AscentShell™ technology. Here’s why that’s important: AscentShell uses an electrospinning process to create a 3-layer waterproof membrane that breathes more, weighs less, and stretches farther than any competing materials (Maybe that’s why it’s won over 20 awards?). Fit into this next-level shell are even more features to keep you comfortable, like Dynamic Reach™ underarm panels for those attempts to remove your skins without taking off your skis and a stuff-sack left pocket so you can efficiently pack away this shell if you get too warm. We could go on about the helmet-compatibility, fully taped seams, and how the fit allows for a full-range of motion while still being trim enough to avoid getting in your way, but we think you get the idea. So go on, toss this breathable rain jacket over your base layers or tee, then get out and conquer those snowy peaks, rainy trails, and windy shores like it’s your job.
