Rated 'Best Ski Jackets of 2021' by GearJunkie

Designed with backcountry skiers and splitboarders in mind, this waterproof snow jacket has all the performance-ready details you need for challenging alpine excursions. As you skin up aprons, you’ll stay blissfully dry thanks to this technical jacket’s astoundingly breathable AscentShell™ fabric. When you’re ready to head downhill, each turn you carve will feel extra comfortable with the freedom of movement provided by its 3-layer stretch membrane. If you have a long day ahead of you, you’ll appreciate how this winter shell’s ultralight composition doesn’t slow you down. And if you can only squeeze in a quick day at the resort, no sweat. Slide your season pass into the forearm pocket designed for it, and get your ride on, easy. If all this sounds so good, you’re already praying for snow, don’t worry. It’s a perfectly normal response to gear this good. When those flurries do finally come, throw this piece over your base layers, and buckle on the matching Skytour Bibs. Then, slip this shell’s wire-brimmed hood over your helmet and cinch it to the right fit with the Hood Lock drawcord so things stay put no matter how fast you’re flying. Just before you lay skins to snow, slip your phone into the media-port pocket of this Skytour AscentShell Jacket, and crank up the jams, ready for a carefree day of crushing it.

Since 2016, Outdoor Research’s proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospun process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes.
