Named Best Backcountry Ski Jacket, Winter 2023 by Switchback Travel
The Skytour AscentShell™ Jacket is a weatherproof shell that focuses on weight and breathability for backcountry skiers and snowboarders thanks to legendary AscentShell™ fabric performance.
Outdoor Research® gear is guaranteed to perform throughout the lifetime of the product.
Free standard shipping on orders over $99 + easy returns.* Final sale products are non-returnable.
The Skytour AscentShell™ Jacket is versatile, lightweight, and waterproof, perfect for backcountry touring, ski mountaineering, and other high-aerobic activities in cold weather.
Constructed with AscentShell™ technology, an electrospun membrane that is waterproof and windproof while still air-permeable and stretchy, the Skytour AscentShell™ Jacket is supremely lightweight and breathable. The Halo Hood fits over a helmet, and multiple hood adjustments and wire brim keep the elements out. Thoughtful design features include pit zips to dump heat, a forearm ski pass pocket, and a brushed tricot chin guard for comfort.
The Skytour AscentShell™ Jacket is the perfect gear for those who want the best of both worlds - the breathability of a softshell with the waterproof protection of a hard shell.
